As a result of the decision by the regional director to allow us to set a quorum for general meetings of 20, rather than the 25 previously demanded and sometimes difficult for us to achieve, there is a need to change that figure in the standing orders.
The sole purpose of the Special General Meeting is to consider a motion to effect that change. A General Meeting will follow on immediately after the Special General Meeting
The current standing orders were agreed at the AGM held on 13th July 2019 and are available at http://bit.ly/BCLP-Rules-SO
At the 18th January Special genaral meeting the secretary will move:
“In paragraph E, subsection i, of the Broadland Labour Party standing orders delete ‘twenty-five’ and replace with ‘twenty’”.
The amended standing order would read:
i. The quorum for General Meetings shall be twenty members in attendance and who are entitled to vote.
Following any debate the motion will be put to the vote and requires a 2/3rds majority of teh members present to be passed.
There is no other business for the Special General Meeting so the chair will close the meeting and open the General Meeting.
