Notice of Special General Meeting

 
Background
 
At the 2018 Annual General Meeting, held 26 November 2018, the option of amending Rule 24.1 was discussed.
 
The change to Rule 24.1 will allow the Society to apply for an Income Tax exemption.
 
The wording of the proposed change is self-explanatory, being designed to prevent future rule changes from undermining the Society’s not for profit status.
 
The existing rule reads:

 

  1. Alteration to rules

24.1These rules may be added to, altered or amended at any general meeting provided that details of such proposed additions, alterations or amendments shall be given in the notice convening the meeting.
 
Proposed addition to the above clause.
 
And provided that no addition to or alteration of the non-profit aims, personal benefit clause or the winding up clause shall be made which affect the tax exemption status.
 
The provisions & effect of this clause shall not be removed from this document and shall be included and implied into any document replacing this document.
 
Resolution: That Rule 24.1 of the Society be amended to incorporate the additional clauses as proposed, and shall now read as follows:
 
 
24 Alteration to rules
24.1These rules may be added to, altered or amended at any general meeting provided that details of such proposed additions, alterations or amendments shall be given in the notice convening the meeting.
 
And provided that no addition to or alteration of the non-profit aims, personal benefit clause or the winding up clause shall be made which affect the tax exemption status.
 
The provisions & effect of this clause shall not be removed from this document and shall be included and implied into any document replacing this document.
 
 
The Special General Meeting will be followed by the AGM
