Re: CTC AGM 2020

I'm not really the best person to answer that, so I'll refer you to a quote from a Trustee who frequents this Parish. As for the physical AGM: Not a requirement of charity law.

I thought that that was the voting details for the 2020 AGM and the motion to change membership fees (Motion 4) was carried by 2,075 votes to 1,418, majority = 657.

Re: CTC AGM 2020
