     6. Rule Change Resolution
Explanatory Notes:

The following matters are addressed in the replacement Rules of the society.

a)     Clause 2.2 – The registered office is updated.

b)     Throughout the Rules ‘Steering Board’ is substituted for ‘Steering Group.  It is considered by the Steering Group that ‘Steering Board’ better reflects the high level nature of the matters considered by Steering Group Members and the change of name allows for past and current member profiles to better describe the nature of work undertaken.

c)     Clause 5.2 - The term of office of elected Steering Group Members has been clarified to provide for an initial term of 2 years and then on consecutive re-election of a Steering Group Member the term is for a further 2 years.  Any subsequent re-election of the Steering Group Member following the second 2 year term would be for 1 year term(s) and the member would be required to stand again at the next Annual General Meeting should the Member wish to continue.  

d)     Clause 5.2 – Provision has been made for a geographical minimum split of elected Steering Group Members so there are at least three members from either side of the Crown Range but subject to the availability of members within the two areas willing to stand for office.

e)     Clauses 17.3 and 17.4 – Alternative voting methods for the election of Steering Group Members have been provided for by way of postal or email voting.  Votes by way of either method must be received by the Secretary 24 hours prior to the notified date and time of the Annual General Meeting relevant to the election.
