Notice is hereby given to all Shed members that a special general meeting will be held at 12-30 pm on the 18th October 2019, at the Shed, where the only item of business is to consider a resolution for amendments to the Rules of Association (Constitution).
This meeting will be held in conjunction with our normal monthly BBQ.
The recommendation is to
(a) amend Clause 20 (3) 1 to – The annual general meeting must by resolution decide the number of ordinary members of the committee (if any) it wishes to hold office for the next year, and
(b) amend Clause 27 (1) to – No less than 50% of committee members will constitute a quorum for the conduct of the business of a meeting of the committee.
The committee wishes to advise members that the current Rules limit us to five ordinary members, but there were seven nominations at the AGM. The meeting agreed that all seven should become committee members but we need to change the Rules for this to happen.
