Results of the BCA AGM 2017 Ballot

Post by David Cooke » Fri 29 Sep 2017 01:43

The recent ballot on changes to the constitution closed last Saturday 23rd September and the votes were counted this Tuesday 26th September.

I am delighted to say that the ballot was a resounding success, nearly 50% of groups voted, and also a reasonable proportion of individual members, by far the majority of both houses voted by email.

Results

For Proposal 1 – removing the first line of 4.6 from the constitution
Individual members voted 88% in favour, and group members voted 85% in favour.

For Proposal 2 – adjusting the 2 house voting system
94% of individual members voted in favour, and 95% of group members.

For Proposal 3 – reducing the emphasis on postal balloting

Individual members voted 96% in favour and group members 93%.

For Proposal 4 – again, changing the emphasis to internet voting
Individual members voted 95% in favour and group members 93%.

The exact figures will form a report by Rick and Pat Halliwell the returning officers.
