10th March – Online EGM (Charity Constitution)

An online EGM is being called for Friday 10th March at 7.30pm. There is only 1 item on the agenda – to approve a new proposed charity constitution (attached).

At the last AGM it was a unanimous decision to apply to the charity commissioner to register Shropshire Chess Association as a charity. The reasons for SCA becoming a charity were laid out in the AGM agenda (appendix B).

A draft constitution has now been prepared by Matt (President), Tony (Secretary) and Chris (Treasurer). We are now opening this up to members consultation. Members can either put their comments in writing before 9th March (email: christopher.d.lewis44@gmail.com) or air their views at the EGM. The constitution will then be amended and voted on at the EGM.
