My thanks to those who attended todays meeting, and those who lodged votes for those that had nominated for the SRG committee.
During the meeting concerns were raised regarding the legality of voting, given the changes to the membership system - i.e. not being based on a financial year and now being based on a system of providing members with a full 12 months membership from the date of joining.
This change had not been reflected in the Model Rules and as such raised issues regarding the voting system. As a result the meeting was closed without resolution.
The Committee is presently seeking advice regarding the best way in which to adopt the changes to the Model Rules and reschedule the meeting. We will seek to do this as soon as possible. It would appear that the nomination and voting process will be required to be undertaken again, so all positions will be available for nomination.
Further information will follow as soon as we receive advice about the best way to move forward.
My thanks to those who attended and participated in the self defence session that followed. The feedback was fantastic and this was passed on ton Gavriel and his team.
Enjoy your weekend.
