The following amendment to our constitution was approved at our AGM on 26 March 2014.

It was unanimously resolved that the previous dissolution provision (Clause 19) be replaced in its entirety with the following: 

19.       In the unlikely event that the Committee considers it necessary to dissolve the Association, a Special General Meeting shall be called of all the Members entitled to vote, and such meeting advertised in the Association's magazine and a local newspaper with not less than 21 days' notice. 

            The Committee shall put a resolution to dissolve the Association, to be decided by a vote by those Members present at such a meeting. For the resolution to take effect, at least two-thirds of those Members present shall have voted in favour. 

            In the event that such a resolution is passed, the Officers of the Association shall have the power to dispose of any assets held by or in the name of the Association, for the purpose of satisfying the outstanding debts and liabilities of the Association. All remaining assets after the satisfying of all outstanding debts and liabilities shall be paid or transferred in equal portions to registered charities to be individually chosen by separate majority votes of those Members attending a Special General Meeting called for that purpose. No other body shall have authority to effect such a disposal. 

            For the avoidance of doubt, no part of such disposed assets of the Association shall be paid or transferred directly or indirectly to any persons who have been Members, either in the course of the Association’s existence or at dissolution.
