Discussions with the proposer and seconder will clarify and agree the proposition for acceptance. When a proposal is accepted, within 24 hours, it will be published on the agenda for the AGM/ EGM.


  1. Any resolution may properly be moved as a written resolution unless (Chap 46, Part 13, Chap2, Section 175 of The Act applies) – a.
