It is proposed that the constitution be changed in respect of the following main areas:
i) Elimination of sub-committees in favour of working groups
ii) Tightening up the AGM/Financial Accounts/Elections processes by reducing from 6 to 4 months the maximum time between the financial year end and the AGM and moving the nominations notice nearer to the AGM (from 30th April to 31st May).
iii) Changing the election process so that all members receive ballot papers without having to separately request them.
iv) Extending the Chairperson’s period in office from 1 to 2 years before having to seek re-election.
v) Various other minor amends.
The proposal seeks to make less burdensome the working of the Executive Committee and to streamline the various formalities contained in the constitution. A detailed copy of the changes is available upon request.
