2021 EGM – Amending the constitution to ensure Board continuity

Members will have received an invite to an Extraordinary General Meeting, scheduled for February 18.

The proposed Special Resolution simplifies the term limit for Directors to a single nine year maximum, as originally intended by the constitution.

  • CAM needs Board continuity;
  • 9-year maximum terms are standard for charities;
  • The present Constitution was drafted in an unnecessarily complex way and results in much shorter terms e.g. our former Chair was limited to only 4 years 3 months, when he was in the midst of important negotiations with key stakeholders;
  • The process of election/re-election, appointment and further appointment remains unchanged.

Members, please support the Board in its work by signing and returning the proxy form, below. Proxy forms can also be filled out at the gallery.

If you have any questions, please email us at frontofhouse@castlemainegallery.com
