Virtual General Meeting - 22nd July

Monday 15 June, 2020

ITCA Online General Meeting - 22nd July at 7pm

Summary

We would like the membership to consider deferring the Annual General Meeting of the International Topper Class Association (GBR), to the next National Series event, where Covid-19 social distancing measures should allow us to meet together.

We would like the members to consider the temporary constitutional amendments set out below en-block to allow us to do this, by voting in favour of the proposal.

Background

We are not able to hold a physical Annual General Meeting this year and had planned to hold the AGM ‘online’.  Whilst this seems a logical approach, we would not experience the usual interactions and debate when we meet in person. Also managing an online debate would be very tricky. 

We are therefore proposing we temporarily amend our Constitution, to allow us to delay and have the meeting in person at our next National Series event.

The constitution can be found here if you would like to refer to it.

What the constitution says

6.1 The Annual General Meeting of the Association shall be held at such venue, at such time on such date between 1 March and 30 September in each year as the Committee may determine. The date of the meeting shall be announced at least two months in advance.

6.7 Unless otherwise provided for in this Constitution, voting at any General Meeting shall be by show of hands, a simple majority of those voting being required.

PROPOSAL:  We would like to temporarily amend the Constitution as follows

6.1 The Annual General Meeting of the Association for 2020 shall be held at such venue, at such time on such date as the Committee may determine as soon as the restrictions on social distancing permit.  The date of the meeting shall be announced at least two months in advance.

6.7 Unless otherwise provided for in this Constitution, voting at any General Meeting shall be by electronic poling, a simple majority of those voting being required.
