In light of these nominations there will be an election for the position of president and a call for nominations from the floor for the position of committee member.

All members need to be aware of two current constitutional points

To vote on any matter at the AGM or in the subsequent general meeting members must be both financial and physically present.


Three resolutions have also been proposed and will be discussed and voted upon.

The first is a special resolution as it deals with a constitutional point.
The other resolutions are ordinary resolutions as they deal with organisational  matters that do not have any impact on the constitution..
