Proposed Constitution changes

We are proposing two changes to our constitution, these changes need to be voted on by our members at our AGM, and if successful we will then submit them to the charity regulator.

Change one

To give the board of trustees and membership more flexibility going forward it will give members the ability to exercise their voting rights even if they cannot attend a members meeting.

Existing wording:

Voting at members’ meetings

42. Every member has one vote, which must be given personally.

New wording:

Voting at members’ meetings

42. Every member has one vote, which can be given in person at the meeting, or by other means, as agreed by the board of trustees.
 

Change two

This change is proposed in response to the increased interest in the number of people wanting to join the board of trustees. It will also allow for an increased range of experience, thus give more stability to Dads Rock.

Existing wording:

Number of charity trustees

52. The maximum number of charity trustees is ten.

New wording:

Number of charity trustees

52. The maximum number of charity trustees is twelve.
