We Need You!!!
We are delighted to be able to invite you to an Extraordinary General Meeting of club members to discuss and hopefully approve a very important part of our development.
We are proposing to convert the club into a charitable organisation which we feel better suits what we do and will increase our access to funding. This involves us updating both our Memorandum and Articles of Association and the Club Rules.
The proposed changes to the Articles are mainly minor updates given the age of the original document (c.1965!!) and subsequent changes in legislation which include the introduction of clauses covering benefits and payments to and conflicts of interest of Directors, and Proxy Voting.
The proposed changes to the Rules reflect current practice at the Club with additional detail required by the Charity Commission in our application for charitable status.
The agenda for the meeting is therefore to:
- “Receive, Review and formally adopt the revised Memorandum and Articles of Association and Club Rules”.
- This is an important part of our development and it will be very helpful if you are able to attend to share your thoughts and opinions.
