SAMÞYKKTIR ICF ICELAND
Félagið heitir ICF Iceland.
Heimili félagsins og varnarþing er í Reykjavík.
Tilgangur ICF Iceland er að efla markþjálfun sem faggrein á Íslandi og stuðla að metnaði og fagmennsku innan greinarinnar. Auk þess að efla samstarf og tengsl markþjálfa bæði innanlands og erlendis.
Tilgangi sínum hyggst félagið ná með því að fræða, miðla og tengja:
Fræða: Standa fyrir reglulegri fræðslu og menntun á fagsviði markþjálfunar ásamt því að vera með kynningar á námsmöguleikum, vottunum, og siðareglum markþjálfa.
Miðla: Vera talsmenn faglegrar markþjálfunar innan félagsins og á opinberum vettvangi. Standa fyrir opinberum atburðum sem kynna gagnsemi markþjálfunar bæði í atvinnulífi og menntasamfélaginu. Vera sýnileg á samfélagsmiðlum og í fjölmiðlum.
Tengja: Að vera tengiliður markþjálfa við ICF Global ásamt því að stuðla að öflugri tengingu markþjálfa innan fagsins og við aðrar atvinnugreinar, hvort heldur er innanlands eða erlendis.
Félagsaðild er tvenns konar: A og B (alþjóðleg og innlend).
A-aðild (alþjóðlega aðild) hafa þeir félagsmenn sem greiða félagsgjöld í bæði ICF Global og ICF Iceland og hafa þar með aðgang að starfsemi beggja félaga.
B-aðild (innlenda aðild - FMÍ) hafa þeir félagsmenn sem greiða félgasgjöld í ICF Iceland en ekki í ICF Global. Þeir hafa aðgang að starfsemi ICF Iceland.
Félagsaðild hafa þeir félagar sem hafa greitt félagsgjald og eru skuldlausir við félagið.
Starfstímabil félagsins er frá 1. apríl – 31. mars. Á aðalfundi skal stjórn gera upp árangur liðins árs. Aðeins félagsmenn í ICF Iceland eru gjaldgengir sem þátttakendur á aðalfundi.
Aðalfund skal halda eigi síðar en í maí mánuði ár hvert og skal boða til hans með að minnst tveggja vikna fyrirvara með sannanlegum hætti. Erindi og lagabreytingar skulu berast stjórn með að minnsta kosti þriggja vikna fyrirvara. Aðalfundur telst löglegur, sé rétt til hans boðað. Einfaldur meirihluti mættra félagsmanna sem uppfylla skilyrði 6. gr ræður úrslitum mála.
Með aðalfundarboði skulu fylgja fyrirhugaðar lagabreytingar, ef einhverjar eru.
Dagskrá aðalfundar skal vera sem hér segir:
Kosning fundarstjóra og fundarritara
Skýrsla stjórnar lögð fram
Reikningar lagðir fram til samþykktar
Stjórn félagsins skal skipuð þremur til sjö (3-7) félagsmönnum; formanni, varaformanni og einum til fimm (1-5) meðstjórnendum sem kjörnir eru á aðalfundi til tveggja ára.
Varastjórn skal skipuð einum til þremur (1-3) félagsmönnum sem kjörnir eru á aðalfundi til eins árs.
Meginreglan skal vera sú að á hverju ári láti þrír stjórnarmenn af störfum. Ef atkvæði eru jöfn skal hlutkesti ráða úrslitum. Leitast skal við að halda kynjahlutfalli sem jöfnustu innan stjórnar.
Stjórnin skiptir með sér verkum.
Á fyrsta stjórnarfundi skiptir stjórnin með sér verkum og kýs sér gjaldkera og ritara til eins árs í senn.
Stjórn félagsins fer með málefni félagsins milli aðalfunda. Formaður boðar til funda.
Firmaritun er í höndum meirihluta stjórnar.

Ákvörðun um slit félagsins skal taka á aðalfundi með einföldum meirihluta atkvæða og renna eignir þess í tvo jafna hluta. Annar hlutinn rennur til ICF Global og hinn hlutinn til sambærilegs félags skv. ákvörðun aðalfundar.
Ákvörðun um slit félagsins skal taka á aðalfundi með einföldum meirihluta atkvæða. Ákvörðun skal staðfesta á næsta löglega boðaða aðalfundi. Síðari aðalfundur tekur ákvörðun um skiptingu eigna félagsins sem annarsvegar skulu renna til ICF Global og hins vegar til annars sambærilegs fagfélags markþjálfa.
