After several months of consultation at all levels within the Association, Council, Area Councils, Branches and Members, please find the resulting Review of the Standard Area Regulations, the Standard Branch Regulations and the Standard Branch Club Rules of the Association adopted by Council at its meeting on 15 February 2017 for presentation to Annual Conference in May 2017.
As stated in the Review Pack, changes to the Rules and Byelaws approved in 2016, have been taken into account as well as current charity legislation.
During the consultation, it became apparent that an amendment to Bye-Law 18 was necessary and a proposed Resolution is included in the pack.
The objectives of the Review are detailed in the Paper and the various Regulations have been brought up to date. Included in the pack are commentaries on the Review of the Area, Branch and Branch Club Regulations. Details of the procedure of making the presentation at Conference and the Council Resolutions are to be found within the Paper under the heading Conference Procedure.
The Review Group recommends that Branch Committees and Area Councils discuss the Paper prior to their respective Annual General Meetings and Area Conferences.
We would be grateful if you would send any comments addressed for my attention via the Secretary General at firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 March 2017.
We look forward to a constructive Annual Conference.
