Resignations and appointments
Resignations and appointments: under Article 32 of our constitution, one third (or the closest number to one third) of the directors must resign at each AGM. As we currently have 4 directors, one will resign at the AGM and an election is to be held to appoint or re-appoint for that role. This year, it will be the secretary (Ed John), who will be standing for re-appointment. We also have roles unfilled and we are keen to have enthusiastic new members taking a more active :- (a) the Society’s representative at the local committee, (b) a membership secretary and (c) an events co-ordinator. Do please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com if you would like to stand as secretary or for any of the other roles.
Proxy: Members have a right to appoint a proxy under section 324 of the Companies Act 2006 and article 22 – please drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org confirming which member you would like to appoint as your proxy. Only those who have paid their subscriptions will be entitled to vote.
Amendment to the constitution: HMRC require an amendment to our constitution before they will allow us a charity exemption. Accordingly, we propose to amend the articles to insert a new Article 4A which uses their proposed wording, so it would read:
“No amendment shall be made to the Objects or Articles of the charity which would have the effect of making the charity cease to be a charity at law.”
