A.G.M !

Atherstone Civic Society is proud of its formal Constitution, and the Executive Committee does consult it regularly to guide its decisions.  However, in its 30-year lifetime (yes, the Society is reaching its thirtieth anniversary), the Committee has never had to consider postponing its AGM.  That venerable Constitution of ours makes no mention of such a thing.  What it does say is that “an AGM shall be held in or about April of each year” to receive reports, along with the audited accounts.  So are we acting under its authority in postponing the event?   Well, the Constitution also says that the Committee is responsible for the management and administration of the Society, and it is under that clause that the postponement has been made.  However, we must also stop to consider that another function of the AGM is the constitutional annual re-election of that very Committee, which counts in its number the four positions of Chair, Vice-chair, Treasurer and Secretary.  We are of course faced with unprecedented circumstances not foreseen by those who drew up our Constitution, and it seems, despite the somewhat Catch-22 nature of the case, that the committee, with its four officers,  has no choice but hold over all tMhe purposes of the AGM until better times return.
