    RSGB Extraordinary General Meeting 19th November 2011

    135 people attended the RSGB EGM called to consider a series of Resolutions to put in place an Interim Board to address some of the challenges currently faced by the Society.


    During the EGM, which was chaired by RSGB President Dave Wilson, M0OBW, the meeting heard from Don Beattie, G3BJ, Acting General Manager, of the issues leading up to the Resolutions being proposed.


    After a lively discussion, the President called for a poll to be taken, which was supervised by Electoral Reform Services.   The results were;


    For Special Resolution 1 (to create the Interim Board): 85% of those voting


    For Ordinary Resolutions 2-9 (to appoint individual members to the Board), votes ranged between 83% and 86% of those voting.


    Special Resolution 1 required a 75% majority, the others a simple majority.


    The President therefore declared all motions carried.   The Interim Board starts work immediately and will serve until the 2013 Annual General Meeting.


    The IB comprises David Aslin G3WGN, Don Beattie G3BJ, Phillip Brooks G4NZQ, Dr Chris Duckling G3SVL, Dr John Gould G3WKL, Alan Messenger G0TLK, Dr Bob Whelan G3PJT and David Wilson M0OBW (President).
