Over 30 members attended the SGM and will know that there was a substantial vote in favour of the Society’s proposal to incorporate and offer benefits on a discretionary basis. We undertook to count all votes posted prior to the SGM and allow a further 7 days for their receipt. We can now announce that 797 members voted FOR the SGM resolution and 29 AGAINST. Accordingly, the Society is proceeding to register the Memorandum and new Rules.
We noted at the SGM that a few members had gained the impression that we might be intending to means test the benefits that we pay. We would assure our members that we have no such plans.
A newsletter will follow in the coming weeks.
