Potential Constitutional Difficulties during the Covid 19 Pandemic
As you will be well aware the current Covid-19 Pandemic has created extraordinary challenges for health, family, work, recreation and all aspects of normal living. These unprecedented challenges have affected every aspect of peoples lives and although we are beginning to see some easing of restrictions the future continues to remain uncertain in terms of a full return to normality. With this in mind and in anticipation of the normal Constitutional requirements for Annual General Meetings, Election of Officers etc. the Committee of Management is mindful of how current circumstances could impact the Clubs ability to function properly and in line with the Club Constitution.
Questions that arise for immediate consideration include the following:-
- The ability to hold an AGM/SGM with current social distancing restrictions in place
- The ability to conduct business, including amending the Club Constitution, to deal with issues that arise as a result of occurrences such as Covid -19
In that regard it is been agreed by the Committee of Management that a Special General Meeting would be required to deal with such emerging issues and in that event, I will keep you promptly informed of developments as they arise.
