Statutes

Statutes of the Czech Zoological Society constitute the document that define the Society. They are a prerequisite for registration. They include the name and address of the Society and the objectives and purposes of its activities, membership, rights and duties of members, structure of the organization of the Society and its institutions, legal status and principles of management. They include also provisions for cancellation, merging and distribution of the Society.
The first statutes of the Czechoslovak Zoological Society, which is the precursor of the Czech Zoological Society, were registered by the Ministry of Interior (Home Office) on 21st March, 1927 (in brackets is mentioned the Latin name of the Society as Societas Zoologica Čechosloveniae). The second statutes entitled " Organizační řád Československé zoologické společnosti při ČSAV“ were registered by the Ministry of Interior on 14th November, 1955.
After splitting of the former Czechoslovakia into two countries, the original Society split into two separate societies. Statutes of the Czech Zoological Society, approved by the general assembly of members on 24th October, 1992, and registered by the Ministry of Interior on 16th February, 1993, are still valid. The full text of the Statutes is published only in Czech.
