declares the ceremony/ meeting open......... convoking ... to this end


Explanation:
opto por "ceremony" (, aunque podría ser también "meeting", para dejarte esta segunda variante para después: depende del contexto total, tendrás que usar "assembly" (que es más específico y formal) o "meeting" (que es más general)_: (the respective Assembly)

a tal efecto: to this end

convoke no deja dudas, es más claro que call en este caso...

suerte!

Explanation:
Open = dar comienzo, empezar (una de sus acepciones) - Simon & Schuster's
