An Extraordinary General Meeting of the Members was called for December 10, 2015 and held by conference call. On the agenda:
– extension of CO-LaN duration till December 31, 2020

– designation of President, Secretary and Treasurer
Among the Full Members, were present Air Liquide represented by Philippe ARPENTINIER, BASF SA represented by Peter MAUER, BP represented by Malcolm WOODMAN, DOW represented by proxy through Malcolm WOODMAN, Shell Global Solutions represented by Richard BAUR.
The duration of CO-LaN was extended by five more years, till December 31, 2020. This decision shows the confidence the Full Members have in CO-LaN being able to deliver CAPE-OPEN to the industry. Articles 1 and 4 of the bylaws were modified to reflect this decision.
