- 7.1 Any Member desiring to resign from membership of the EUROPEAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE must deliver written notice of its resignation to the main office address of the EUROPEAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. Every resignation notice shall be deemed to take effect on the date stated in the notice, and may not have any retroactive effect, or if none, on the date that such notice is received by the EUROPEAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.
- 7.2 The Executive Committee may, by written notice, invite any Member to resign its membership of the EUROPEAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE if such Member has breached these Statutes or the EUROPEAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Rules, or if, in the opinion of the Executive Committee, such Member has conducted himself/herself in an unbecoming manner or allowing such Member to remain as a Member would bring discredit to the EUROPEAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. If the Executive Committee has not received the resignation of a Member invited to resign or has not withdrawn its invitation for the Member to resign within fourteen (14) days after the date of the invitation to resign, the Executive Committee may recommend the expulsion of that Member from the EUROPEAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE at an Executive Committee Meeting. A resolution to expel a Member passed by a majority of the Executive Committee Members shall be final and binding on the Member.
