Constitutional Amendment Notice
Reason for proposed amendments:
We propose to reduce required number of meetings of both the National Executive and National Council from six (6) to four (4) as it is has proved difficult to gather group members (spread across three time zones) together for six meetings per year.
Motion to change the Constitution
Proposed new wording:
22 Committee meetings and quorum
(1) The committee must meet not less than six four times a year at the place and time and in a manner that the committee may decide.
