GDS Recharter

Prior to 2011, ISA's sections were required to submit rechartering documents each year in order to stay active as a section. In 2010, the Governing Council voted to deprecate this practice, and replaced it with a policy requiring sections to submit Annual Reports, starting in 2011. An archive of GDS rechartering documents is below.
