Rules Review

Draft Proposals to reduce the number of Trustees and make other changes

Further to discussion at the AGM in May 2019 outlining ideas for reducing the number of Trustees to simplify the management of the Association whilst ensuring we retained the same accountability to the membership, draft revisions to the rules are now available.

The EACR Management Committee considered the draft proposals in October and it was agreed following update for observations made at the meeting that the draft revisions to the rules should be made available to members via the website as part of the consultation process before a formal proposal is made to the February 2020 Committee meeting for consideration at the AGM in May 2020.

There are links below to three documents which can be viewed on line, downloaded to your own computer and/or printed for review. The documents are an outline of the proposals, a complete listing of the draft rules and comparison of the draft rules to the current rules.

If you know a member who is interested in reviewing the draft rules, but who does not have access to the website, please make a copy available to them, but as the downloads exceed 20 pages in the interests of reducing waste please do not print multiple copies unless they are necessary - most towers have at least one person who has access to the internet.

The closing date for comments is 12 December 2019, they can be or posted to Colin Chapman (address in current Annual Report). Please ensure in any comments you make include the sequence number from the listing, plus the specific comment or observation and reasoning. All comments will be acknowledged.

The group will consider all comments and members will be available at the Annual District Meetings in January 2019 to answer any questions.

The members of the draft Rules group are Mary Bone, Colin Chapman, David Sparling and the Master, General Secretary and Treasurer.
