5.2. Proposal: Deadline for announcements of an international Blue Knights meeting
It is more and more difficult for chapters to organize a meeting within two years after announcement. Therefore, it would be better to have the possibility to announce a meeting three years in advance. The only problem is that the voting for the host of the European Convention is two years in advance. To solve this problem it is necessary to block four weekends (last two in May and the first two in June) in the third year. After the weekend for the European Convention is fixed, the other weekends are free again.
Motion: The announcement of an International Blue Knights meeting to the European Board is possible three years before. Four weekends in the third year (the last two in May and the first two in June) are blocked until the date of the European Convention is fixed. The date of a European Convention has to be fixed within four weeks after voting for the host of the EC.
Second: European Chairman
All Representatives agreed. The motion passed.

The Chairman stated out that he doesn't see any possibility to decide that all Blue Knights have to do so. The decision to do or not to do is with each single member.
There was no discussion or motion, so the proposal failed.
5.4. Registration and approval of all Blue Knights Events – European Board
The European Board had to notice, that there are many events in a year, which are like International meetings (whole weekend, rallies, life music and so on), but announced and invited to all Blue Knights, like season opening party and so on. Therefore, they have not to be registrate and approved by the European Board. If an International meeting takes place on the same weekend as another event in a close distance, there will be a conflict.
Motion by Chairman:
All Blue Knights events to which a chapter invites all Blue Knights have to be announced to and registrate and approved by the European Board.
Voting: 14 yes
The motion failed.
