The General Meeting is an important event and all members are encouraged to attend.
Any member intending to submit proposed motions are strongly urged to read Rule 29 of the club’s constitution here.
Submission of motions
Writing the motion.
Submitting a motion should consist of two parts:
a) Content of the motion (this is what will be voted on)
b) Justification for the motion (this is the argument in favour and will be printed in full in the members’ notes for the General Meeting).
The motion should:
a) Clearly state whether the motion is intended as a Members’ Resolution, a Constitutional rule change, a Members’ vote, or a Point of Agenda.
b) Be written in English and be clear to read.
c) Clearly state the name and membership number of the proposer.
d) Be signed and dated by the proposer if posted or sent by email without signature.
e) Include contact details for the proposer (preferably a phone number and an email address).
f) For each type of motion the proposer should obtain the signatures of 5 other members on a single written copy of the motion and clearly print the names and membership numbers of each member next to their signature. Alternatively the motion can be accepted with the same content but without signatures. If any member cannot find 5 supporters of the motion they can ask the Club to circulate to members via the Members Forum.
g) A signed copy of the motion should be delivered to the Club clearly marked for the attention of the Club Secretary or by email without signature. If posted the motion should be made available to the Club Secretary in a digital format if possible.
h) Motions must reach the Club Secretary not later than noon 45 days before the General Meeting is to be held.
If you wish to submit a resolution for consideration at the General Meeting Rule 29 of the club’s constitution provides that notice of that resolution must be given in writing to the club no later than noon 45 days before the date of the meeting, therefore by no later than noon on Monday 13 February 2017.
