NOTICE OF PROPOSED CHANGE TO CONSTITUTION
The Committee have decided to offer a proposed change to the Constitution to be voted on by the membership at the time of the AGM as follows:
Current Statement – Under “Election of the Committee”
“At the annual general meeting the membership should elect a body of up to six officers to form the committee.”
“Notwithstanding the provisions of the above, Berny Morgan shall be the Captain for Life or for as long as he chooses to continue in the position.”
Proposed Change – Under “Election of the Committee”
“Berny Morgan shall be a committee member and the Captain for Life or for as long as he chooses to continue in the position. In addition, at the annual general meeting, the membership should elect a body of up to a further six officers to form the committee”.
Reason for Change
To combine both existing statements in one overall statement and to provide the opportunity for a larger number of committee members to be able to better represent the wishes of the membership should such numbers be willing to serve.
Voting on this proposed change will occur at the time of the AGM although email votes can be cast prior to the AGM.
