LGBT Centre, 38 Holloway Circus, Birmingham B1 1EQ
10th November 2019
A one-day planning and business meeting
Sunday 10th November 2019, 12 noon to 6.30pm
The annual Autumn Gathering is a meeting where ECC celebrates the rich experiences of the past year and plans events for the forthcoming year. We also ensure that taskholders and event organisers are in place.
It is also the time for the community’s Annual General Meeting, a short formal meeting mainly to ratify finances and to elect members of the maintenance group and taskholders.
This year we are making changes in the timing, venue and length of the annual meeting. Originally planned for January 2020, we have rescheduled the AG as a result of the following considerations:
The Birmingham LGBT Centre at Holloway Circus
Plans for the 2019 gathering
There is a proposal from Jimmy MacSweeney to seek to change Article 25 of our Articles of Association for Edward Carpenter Community Ltd. This states that ‘No business shall be transacted at a General Meeting unless a quorum of members is present. 15 members will be a quorum’. Reflecting the decrease in numbers of members attending the AG, he proposes reducing the requirement for a quorum to 10, and is seeking responses from the Community.
Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Edward Carpenter Community Ltd will take place on Sunday November 10, 2019 at 5.00 pm at the Birmingham LGBT Centre, 38 Holloway Circus, Birmingham B1 1EQ.
Any member wishing to put down a motion for discussion should forward this motion in writing so that it reaches the undersigned not later than 28 days before the date of the meeting
David Wray, Secretary, Edward Carpenter Community Ltd., 29, Claverdon House, Hollybank Road, Birmingham B13 0QY (email maintenance [at] edwardcarpentercommunity.org.uk).
There is no charge for this meeting, to which we hope to attract up to 25 men. A light lunch will be served at 12 noon, before the meeting starts at 12.30. If you'd like to come, please RSVP to Jimmy (jimmymacsweeney [at] talktalk.net), so that we have an idea of numbers.
