AGM confirms continuation of the Baldock Society with a new membership approach

posted 9 Feb 2017, 12:53 by The Baldock Society   [ updated 9 Feb 2017, 12:54 ]
The main business at the 2017 AGM was to determine the way forward for the Society
, which as previously reported, was subject to the proposal of dissolution.

27 members present instead voted to accept an alternative proposal, consisting of:
  • A new membership charging model which will stand for the foreseeable future, reflective of a reduction in general meetings which had become increasingly difficult to sustain;
  • Changes to the constitution, which alter the frequency and quorum of Committee meetings in response to the change in membership arrangements. The changes to the constitution will be formally ratified at the next general meeting, expected to take place in mid-2017.
Moving forward, the Committee will be focused on representing its members to achieve the Society's objectives, particularly in terms of monitoring and responding to planning consultations as they affect the town.

The Society will continue to welcome new members, who alongside established members, may apply to join as members of the Committee. This offers the opportunity to directly contribute to the Society's representations.

The Committee would like to express its thanks to the membership, for their determined view that the Society should continue its work.

You will find the minutes of our AGM, which contain the full detail, on our general meetings page.
