Constitutional Motion: Setting membership rates

Proposer: James Grindrod

Seconder: Stuart Weir

 

This meeting notes:

1.    That section 3.1.2 of the Unlock Democracy constitution states:

The membership subscription shall be set by the Annual General Meeting which shall last until the following Annual General Meeting. The Annual General Meeting may set a specific membership subscription for benefit claimants, unwaged individuals and individuals on a fixed income.

This meeting believes:

1.    That the Annual General Meeting should continue to have the power to set the rate of membership subscriptions, but that the AGM only needs to consider the rate if there is a proposal to change it.

This meeting resolves:

1.    To amend the first sentence of section 3.1.2 of the Unlock Democracy constitution to read:

The membership subscription shall be set by the Annual General Meeting, which shall last until changed by a subsequent Annual General Meeting.
