ABA Membership List updates (2004)
77 ABA Membership

Persons who want to confirm their membership of the ABA must send their completed membership form and fees to the secretary if your name does not appear in the list below, Darryl Macer, (by Email, fax or airmail).

Only those currently paid up persons at the time of elections (October 2004) [on the current list below marked (2004)] will be eligible for voting in 2004 elections. (There are also some persons who did not wish there name to be displayed, who are also paid up members.) All persons who wish to vote must register with the ABA secretariat directly, not through country representatives.

The following members are to add to the list of members written in the January 2004 issue of EJAIB (see total list on-line) as of 15 April 2004. (Many members are not yet transferred from the previous list of ABA members because of lack of fee payment - so names do not appear).
