We now have the result of the postal ballot, the forms for which were sent out with the last Slingshot. A total of 74 votes were cast, of which 70 were in favour of the proposal to adopt a new Constitution, and 4 were against.
We will therefore now go on to the next step, which is to hold an EGM on 27 June 2009 at The Old Coffee House, Beak Street, London, starting at 12.00 noon. The new Constitution will be introduced as from that date, unless voted down by a quorate EGM.
This announcement serves as notice of the EGM. Any member has the right to attend and vote.
For the record, 43 votes were submitted via the Internet, and 31 by post.
Thanks to the noble 74 who voted, and also to Bill Thurlow for acting as Returning Officer.
