The agenda may look a bit confusing. This is because there are changes to the Articles of Association and Board structure and we have to approach this in a specific order. The wording is not in Plain English as it has to be in formal language which a lawyer has provided for us. In Plain English / layman’s terms: we will vote on the new articles (agenda point 7). The proposed change is to provide a flexible structure enabling the Board to react to the changing needs of the organisation without having to frequently change the Articles.

  • If the proposed Articles are passed, then the AGM will run from that point on, using the new Articles, so the Board positions will reflect that e.g. we can appoint a Vice Chairperson and 2 other nominated Directors. This is agenda point 8. We will not need agenda point 9 and a statement to that effect will be minuted.
  • If the proposed Articles are not passed, then the AGM will run from that point on, using the current Articles, so the Board positions will reflect that e.g. we can appoint 3 nominated Directors. This is agenda point 9. We will not need agenda point 8 and a statement to that effect will be minuted.

This background to these changes was presented at a Board Phone-In in January to which the full membership was invited.
