*The Trustees would like to propose that clause 19(2) of the Constitution be amended as follows:
19. Meetings and proceedings of trustees
(2) Appointment of officers
At the first meeting of the trustees following an annual general meeting, or at any subsequent meeting should a vacancy arise, the trustees shall appoint from amongst their number (including any nominated trustees appointed in accordance with clause 13(2)) office holders, as follows:
• Chairman (who shall hold that office for no more than four years in succession);
• Honorary Treasurer; and
• Honorary Secretary.
The trustees may at any time revoke such appointments
**There should be nine elected trustees: the longest-serving three retire by rotation. There will therefore be an election for a minimum of three positions.
The names and biographies of candidates for election will be posted on the website 14 days in advance of the meeting. Any member may vote at the meeting or by proxy. Proxies must be appointed by notice in writing and must be signed by the applicable member.
In the event of a contested election, proxy registration forms will be available from Rose House during the 14 days prior to the meeting. Additionally, members whose email addresses are held by the BCA will be sent a proxy registration form as an email. A completed registration form will be valid providing it is returned by email from the member’s own email address, as recorded in the BCA’s register of members.
A copy of this notice and of the agenda papers (including the Annual Report and Accounts) will be posted on the website: barnes-ca.org 14 days in advance of the meeting. View report.
