Extraordinary General Meeting on Wednesday 21 January, 2015
For various reasons, we were unable to introduce some necessary constitutional changes at our AGM in November. Accordingly, we need to hold an Extraordinary General Meeting to get them into place, and will be doing so on Wednesday, 21 January, 2015 in the upstairs room of the Crown Centre, 39, St Johns Street, Devizes SN10 1BL at 7.30pm.
The meeting shouldn’t take long. The proposed changes are below in red. Copies of the full constitution will be available at the EGM. All are welcome to attend, but only fully paid-up members can vote.
5.2 The following officers, who are automatically members of the Management Committee, will be elected by the Members at an AGM or an EGM:
the Party Leader (Chairperson)*,
the Deputy Party Leader
the Honorary Treasurer*
the Honorary Secretary
the Membership Secretary
the Nominating Officer*
[* indicates the minimum legal requirement for a registered political party]
5.4 Members of any local council in the Devizes Community Area, who are also Members of Devizes Guardians, are automatically Members of the Committee.
5.8 The Officers specified in paragraph 5.2 will retire every two years in turn at an AGM so that no more than three officers retire in any one year.
