OGAE International Bureau Elections

According to the OGAE International statutes, the Bureau elections will take place at the next general Presidents’ Meeting in Tel Aviv 17 May 2019. You can find out more information on the Bureau here.

Elections will take place for each of the following seven posts:
Bureau members (2)
Deputy members (2)

The Bureau is calling for applications to the seven posts. Any active member of an OGAE member club is invited to put themselves forward for election. Please note that the actual elections will take place in Tel Aviv at the Presidents’ Meeting but the respective candidates do not have to be present during the Presidents’ Meeting. Please note, a number of current Bureau members have indicated that they plan to not stand for re-election, so there are vacant positions to fill.

Those interested in putting themselves forward should contact their national club and include a short cv/resume and explanation of why they would like to serve on the Bureau. Any nominations from members of OGAE Rest of the World must be emailed to contact@ogaerotw.com no later than Noon CET on 17 April. We will then submit all nominees (if any) from RoW to the coordinator.

Information about the candidates will be circulated to the presidents by email no later than 20 April. The respective candidates will then have the opportunity to introduce themselves in the Presidents’ meeting in May. In the interests of fairness, OGAE International kindly ask the candidates not to engage in any campaigning ahead of the meeting. The Presidents will make their decision based on the candidates’ applications, presentations and the answers to any questions in the Presidents‘ Meeting.

OGAE Second Chance Contest pre-selection

Voting is now open to decide which song will represent OGAE Rest of the World in the Second Chance contest. To see the 10 shortlisted songs (and vote!) please click here.

Please note that some songs from Moldova are not included as we could not locate a video that met the rules of the contest. As such we needed to disqualify them from this pre-selection.

Voting will close at noon CET on 7 April.

New e-Membership cards

Those Euphoria members that provided us with their details back in December/January should receive a text message and email (or just an email if you indicated that you do not have a smartphone) in the next 48 hours. This link will provide you with further information on how to set up your membership card once the link has been sent to you.

Please note - if you joined or renewed after 21 January then you will not be in this first batch, but will be added shortly (we will provide an update and let you know when this will happen).

As always, any questions please drop us an email - contact@ogaerotw.com

2019 Ticket List

We have completed the #2019Points tally and have transferred this to the ticket list, which means it is now prioritized in order. You can view it here.

If you are on the ticket list, can you please check the points table and ensure your points tally is correct. If you do not believe it is, please email us at contact@ogaerotw.com - it is important you email and do not contact a board member directly. The work on the points opportunities was shared, so we all have the detailed records for different points opportunities. If you email we can direct your query to the correct board member for those points for a response. The points list is very difficult to read on a phone due to it's size, so please check it on a tablet or laptop.

If you are on the ticket list and no longer plan to travel to Israel, please also email us so that we can remove your name.

We all need to manage our expectations on how many packages may be available. The arena is much smaller than previous years, so if packages are made available to OGAE it is highly unlikely that we would get enough to enable everyone on the list to purchase one.
