5 February 2015.
At the last AGM members were asked if they would agree to the motion that the Guild Council amend the Memorandum and Articles (Constitution) to be more flexible for the purposes of our organisation. Making these changes had been suggested by one of our funders as well as our fundraiser as a way of allowing us to be more flexible in the use of our resources to raise money for the Guild but which would not infringe our charitable status. It was also a way of simplifying the M&As to be more in tune with our organisation. The meeting, unanimously, agreed to the motion and Council, in conjunction with an expert in these matters, has worked on the amendments.
The changes have now been made and submitted to OSCR (The Office of Scottish Charity Regulator) which has accepted them. We are now required to have a General Meeting for our Members to accept them and I hereby invite you to come to an Extraordinary General meeting to be held on Sunday 22nd of February at 2.00 in Criffel View on the Crichton Campus for the purpose of voting on the special resolution “ That the Members of the Guild of Players accept the amended Memorandum and Articles” . Doors will be open from 1.30 and directions on how to get there are included. Also included are notes on the changes made and information on Open Auditions for our next production.
If you would like to see a copy of the full M&As prior to the meeting please contact me on 01387 255268 or at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will arrange this. If you are unable to attend but wish to nominate a proxy, please fill in the enclosed form.
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
Secretary, Guild of Players.
