Notice of Special General Meeting
7 pm Monday 5th December 2016
The Woodman Inn
129 Todmorden Rd
Burnley BB11 3EX
At the November committee meeting the Treasurer recommended that the annual subscription for junior members be increased from £4 to £12. The committee supports this recommendation and is proposing that this is achieved by adopting the following change to our membership structure.
As the Under 23 subscription is currently £12 it is proposed to remove the Under 18 (Junior) membership class. Thus all Junior members will become Under 23 members with an annual subscription of £12.
If the proposal is approved for current Junior members the annual subscription due on 1st January 2017 will be £12.
In accordance with the club’s constitution a Special General Meeting (SGM) has been called to seek approval for this proposal from the membership. All members are entitled to attend the meeting and speak on the matter which will conclude with a vote. Only members aged 16 and over are eligible to vote on the proposal. Members who are eligible to vote but cannot attend the meeting may cast their vote via proxy by notifying me at least 72 hours before meeting. Full details of the rules around proxy voting are set out in clause 11(g) of the constitution.
I would also ask that if you are planning to attend the meeting that you let me know in advance so I can be sure there is enough room to accommodate everyone.
Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information around this proposal or the SGM. A statement from the Treasurer will be provided at the meeting, and is available on request beforehand.
