‘That the following nominations for Officers and Committee Members be allowed to stand for
election at the AGM on 14th June 2023 as originally agreed by the Honorary Secretary.’
LIST OF NOMINEES PROVIDED BY MR ORAM RECORDED BY SECRETARY
On 1st May 2023 six nominations for the committee were received by the secretary. The Constitution states all nominations must be received by 30th April. In consultation with the Chairman it was agreed that rather than being pedantic to allow the nominations.
On 17th May 2023 Mr Oram advised the Secretary of the following
"The constitution is quite clear. It is also a legal document backed by an act of parliament. Any attempt to change the way the AGM works away from the Constitution would be illegal and would be a denial of members rights I’m sure the members would wholeheartedly reject any attempt to infringe their rights at the AGM."
The Secretary, unaware that he was breaking the law by allowing the late nominations, immediately advised the candidates he could not legally allow them to stand for committee election in the forthcoming AGM as he and the Club would be breaking the Law.
