Thank you to the many people who responded – always good to have ‘new eyes’ for such important proposals. All responses were very positive and helpful. Two suggestions from the feedback so far should be considered by the AGM:
- Mike Ashton noticed that we had not referenced our rules to our Finance Policy. This has been added to Section 5 (printed in Red) and renumbered accordingly.
- On the subject of Subscriptions, if we decide to introduce them, Peter Lowes thought that only members who have paid their subscription should be eligible to vote at the AGM.
