– Leeds Civic Trust AGM 2020

Leeds Civic Trust AGM 2020

This year’s Trust AGM will take place virtually via Zoom this year, as provided for by emergency legislation. Given that the AGM will not provide members with the opportunity to speak, the Trust has decided to provide members with the opportunity to view documentation work as soon as it becomes available, so that questions can be put to the Trust in advance of the meeting. If you have any questions on any of the documents on this page, please email them to office@leedscivictrust.org.uk or leave a message on our mobile phone 07942 670333. We will either respond in advance of the AGM or ensure that the matters you raise are addressed at the AGM.

 

CIO Draft Constitution

This draft document is subject to ratification by Council at the end of October, before the final version is circulated to the membership in advance of the AGM.  The proposal is that the Trust moves from its current legal status (Charitable Company) to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

The Current Constitution

This is the current constitution that the CIO document will replaced. Please click here to view the document.

A full explanation will be provided with the AGM paperwork, but in essence this conversion allows the Trust to continue to function as a charity, protects (and in some cases enhances) member rights, whilst using the most up to date constitutional model. Since this is a constitutional change, a two thirds majority of voting members will be required.
