NOTE Meeting will be to discuss the EGM motion:-

 

Proposed changes to the Club Constitution

 

  1. Removal of the last paragraph within “Meetings”: “Fully paid-up members of the previous year shall be deemed to be paid-up members in respect of the AGM”
  2. Amendment of the first paragraph within “Subscriptions” from “Subscriptions will become due on the 1st September and the subscription rates for all classes of membership shall be determined from time to time by a vote of members attending an AGM or EGM.” to

 

  1. “The membership year runs from 1st September until 31st August following, and subscriptions should be paid by the first club night in September that the member attends or the 21st September whichever is sooner.”

 

  1. “The subscription rates for all classes of membership shall be determined from time to time by a vote of members attending an AGM or EGM, any changes will take effect immediately unless delayed to the next membership year by the same motion.”

 

  1. An amendment of the 3rd paragraph of “Subscriptions” from “New members joining after the 1stMarch in any year are required to pay the pro rata amount for the second half year, e.g. a member joining in June would pay three twelfths of the annual subscription.” to “New members joining after March 1st in any year are required to pay the pro rata amount for the second half year, e.g. a member joining in June would pay three twelfths of the annual subscription”.
  2. Amendment of the last paragraph within “Subscriptions” from “Any member who has not paid their annual subscription by 31st October in any year will be deemed to no longer be a member of the club.” to “Any member who has not paid their annual subscription by 21st September in any year without making representation to the committee will be deemed to no longer be a member of the club.”

 

 

We feel these amendments clarify concerns raised by members at the last AGM and over the last year and also provide some assurances around membership and finances to an incoming committee.

 

The motion to voted on will as follows

  1. To accept all amendments to the constitution proposed by the committee as one amendment In the event of the first motion not receiving a two-thirds majority (including proxy votes) motions to accept each amendment in turn will be proposed.

 

If you are unable to attend this meeting we would encourage you to still continue to take part in this vote by registering a proxy vote with chairman@wadarc.org.uk – you may instruct the chairman on how you wish to vote or you may elect for the chairman to vote on your behalf.
