(m) such other regulations or policies as the Board thinks fit.

 

7.    It shall be the duty of the Board if at any time it shall be of the opinion that the interests of the Union so require, by notice in writing sent by prepaid post to a member’s address, to request that member to withdraw from membership of the Union within a time specified in such notice. No such notice shall be sent except on a vote of a majority of the directors present and voting, which majority shall include one half of the total number of the Board for the time being.

 

8.    If, on the expiry of the time specified in such notice, the member concerned has not withdrawn from membership by submitting written notice of the member’s resignation, or if at any time after receipt of the notice requesting the member to withdraw from membership the member shall so request in writing, the matter shall be submitted to a properly convened and constituted meeting of the Board. The directors and the member whose expulsion is under consideration shall be given at least 14 days’ notice of the meeting and such notice shall specify the matter to be discussed. The member concerned shall be required to attend the meeting and shall be entitled to present a statement in the member’s defence either verbally or in writing, and shall not be required to withdraw from membership unless half of the directors present and voting shall, after receiving the statement in the member’s defence, vote for the expulsion, or unless the member fails to attend the meeting without sufficient reason being given. If such a vote is carried, or if the member shall fail to attend the meeting without sufficient reason being given, the member shall thereupon cease to be a member and the member’s name shall be erased from the register of members. The member may appeal to a general meeting of the Union against the decision of the Board but, if the Board’s decision is upheld, the member will be liable for the costs of holding the general meeting.

 

GENERAL MEETINGS

 

9.    The Union shall hold a general meeting in every calendar year as its annual general meeting at such time and place as may be determined by the Board and shall specify the meeting as such in the notices calling it, provided that so long as the Union holds its first annual general meeting within 18 months after its incorporation it need not hold it in the calendar year of its incorporation or in the following calendar year.

 

10. The annual general meeting shall be held for the following purposes:

 

(a) to receive from the Board financial statements pursuant to Article 78;

 

(b)  to receive from the Chairman a report of the activities of the Union since the previous annual general meeting;

 

(c)  to elect the Chairman, the President and the Treasurer and to confirm their appointment as directors;

(e)  to elect the Elected Directors in place of those retiring;

 

(f)   to ratify the appointment of the Officers; and,

 

(g)  to transact such other business as may be brought before it.

 

11. All general meetings, other than annual general meetings, shall be called extraordinary general meetings. A Voting Member may propose a resolution (or resolutions) to be considered at a general meeting. Such proposed resolutions must be seconded by another Voting Member and made in writing addressed to the Union Secretary and be received not less than 35 days before the general meeting at which they are to be proposed.

 

12. The Board may call general meetings and, on the requisition of one tenth of the Voting Members pursuant to the provisions of the Act, shall forthwith proceed to convene an extraordinary general meeting for a date not later than eight weeks after receipt of the requisition. Such requisition must state the object of the meeting. If there are not within England sufficient directors to call a general meeting, any director or the Union Secretary may call a general meeting.

 

13. An annual general meeting and an extraordinary general meeting called for the passing of a special resolution or a resolution appointing a person as a director shall be called by at least twenty-one clear days’ notice. All other extraordinary general meetings shall be called by at least fourteen clear days’ notice but a general meeting may be called by shorter notice if it is so agreed:

(a)  in the case of an annual general meeting, by all the members entitled to attend and vote thereat; and,

 

(b)  in the case of any other meeting, by a majority in number of the members having a right to attend and vote being a majority together holding not less than ninety-five per cent of the total voting rights at the meeting of all the members.

 

14. The notice shall specify the place, the day and the hour of the meeting and the general nature of the business to be transacted and, in the case of an annual general meeting, shall specify the meeting as such. All business transacted at an extraordinary general meeting and all that is transacted at an annual general meeting with the exception of the business set out in Article 10, shall be deemed special business. The notice shall be given to all the members entitled to vote thereat and to the directors.

 

15. The accidental omission to give notice of a meeting to, or the non-receipt of such notice by, any person entitled to receive notice thereof shall not invalidate any resolution passed, or proceedings held, at any meeting.

 

PROCEEDINGS AT GENERAL MEETINGS

 

16. No business shall be transacted at any general meeting unless a quorum is present when the meeting proceeds to business. Save as herein otherwise provided, 5 Voting Members represented in person shall be a quorum.

 

17. If within half an hour from the time appointed for the holding of a general meeting a quorum is not present, the meeting, if convened on the requisition of the Voting Members, shall be dissolved. In any other case it shall stand adjourned to the same day in the next week, at the same time and place, or at such other place as the Board may determine, and if at such adjourned meeting a quorum is not present within half an hour from the time appointed for holding the meeting the Voting Members present shall be a quorum.

 

18. The Chairman shall preside as chairman at every general meeting but, if the Chairman shall be absent, or if at any meeting he is not present within 15 minutes after the time appointed for holding the same, the directors present shall choose a director who is present to preside.

 

19. The chairman of the meeting may, with the consent of any meeting at which a quorum is present (and shall if so directed by the meeting), adjourn the meeting from time to time, and from place to place, but no business shall be transacted at any adjourned meeting other than business which might have been transacted at the meeting from which the adjournment took place. Whenever such a meeting is adjourned for 14 days or more, notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given in the same manner as of the original meeting. Save as aforesaid, the Voting Members shall not be entitled to any notice of an adjournment, or of the business to be transacted at an adjourned meeting.

 

20. The chairman of the meeting may at any time without the consent of the meeting adjourn any meeting (whether or not it has commenced or a quorum is present) either without fixing a day for the meeting or to another time or place where it appears to him that:

 

(a)  Voting Members wishing to attend cannot be conveniently accommodated in the place appointed for the meeting;

 

(b)  the conduct of persons present prevents or is likely to prevent the orderly continuation of business; or,

 

(c)  an adjournment is otherwise necessary so that the business of the meeting may be properly conducted.

 

21. If an amendment shall be proposed to any resolution under consideration but shall in good faith be ruled out of order by the chairman of the meeting, the proceedings on the substantive resolution shall not be invalidated by any error in such ruling. With the consent of the chairman of the meeting, an amendment may be withdrawn by its proposer before it is voted upon. In the case of a resolution duly proposed as a special or extraordinary resolution, no amendment thereto (other than a mere clerical amendment to correct a typographical error) may in any event be considered or voted upon.

 

22. A resolution put to the vote of a meeting shall be decided on a show of hands.

 

23. A declaration by the chairman of the meeting that a resolution has been carried or carried unanimously, or by a particular majority, or lost, or not carried by a particular majority and an entry to that effect in the minutes of the meeting shall be conclusive evidence of the fact without proof of the number or proportion of the votes recorded in favour of or against the resolution.

 

24. In the case of an equality of votes, the chairman of the meeting shall be entitled to a casting vote in addition to any other vote he may have.

 

25. A resolution in writing executed by or on behalf of each Voting Member who would have been entitled to vote upon it if it had been proposed at a general meeting at which he was present shall be as effectual as if it had been passed at a general meeting duly convened and held and may consist of several instruments in the like form each executed by or on behalf of one or more Voting Members.

 

VOTES OF MEMBERS

 

26. Every Voting Member shall be entitled to receive notice of, attend general meetings and cast one vote on a show of hands. Every Voting Member is entitled to send any number of representatives to general meetings but only one of those representatives shall have a vote. No person may represent more than one Voting Member.

 

27. If any votes are given or counted at a general meeting which shall afterwards be discovered to be improperly given or counted, the same shall not affect the validity of any resolution or thing passed or done at the said meeting, unless the objection to such votes be taken at the same meeting, and not in that case unless the chairman of the meeting shall then and there decide that the error is of sufficient magnitude to affect such resolution or thing.

 

28. No objection shall be raised to the qualification of any voter except at the meeting or adjourned meeting at which the vote objected to be tendered, and every vote not disallowed at the meeting shall be valid. Any objection made in due time shall be referred to the chairman of the meeting whose decision shall be final and conclusive.

 

PRESIDENT

 

29. Nominations for the office of President shall be made by the Past Presidents in advance of the annual general meeting for ratification at the annual general meeting. A person so appointed shall hold office for a two-year term until the next but one annual general meeting. The President shall be a director by virtue of his office and have such other rights and privileges as the Union shall from time to time prescribe. A casual vacancy arising in the position of President shall be filled by the Past Presidents provided that the person appointed to fill the vacancy shall hold office only until such time as the person he replaced was due to retire, but shall be eligible for re-appointment for one further two-year term or such shorter period as the Union in general meeting may decide. For the avoidance of doubt, the President-Elect will normally be put forward as President, having served his term as President-Elect. Any Voting Member may nominate a person for the office of President and must do so on the form prescribed by the Board. Any nomination must be seconded by another Voting Member and signed by the nominee.
