Question regarding the change in the constitution for MGSA.
If the version of the constitution I read is still the correct one I believe the change requires a 2/3 agreement vote at the next annual meeting and 14 days written notice should be given to the members before that meeting before this change can be effected.Fengol said:It is important to note that the constitution is currently being updated and the length of service as a committee member will be 3 years. The reason for the extended duration is the sheer amount of time needed to organise events (in most cases months in advance) and to get responses from government departments and sponsors.
As quoted from the online version of the MGSA Constitution
Some further elaboration on the change and reasons would be appreciated. Also the conformation that the notice above is not a notification that the change has been effected but rather the change is been suggested at the next meeting.
16. Changes to the constitution
16.1. The constitution can be changed by a resolution. The resolution has to be agreed upon and passed by not less than two thirds of the members who are at the annual general meeting.
16.2. A written notice must go out not less than 14 days before the meeting at which the changes to the constitution are going to be proposed. The notice must indicate the proposed changes to the constitution that will be discussed at the meeting.
16.3. No amendments may be made which would have the effect of making the Organisation cease to exist.
