Re: An update on Cycling UK's Board of Trustees' elections

Would anybody bother to turn-up to an AGM if they realised that the decisions made there can be and are ignored just a few weeks after they were made ? I went to the last one, it was on my doorstep so it seemed rude not to, plus I knew there'd be a decent buffet :wink: I didn't do a head count, the...

Re: An update on Cycling UK's Board of Trustees' elections

Do those members that spend their time and money going to these AGMs appreciate that what they decide there is irrelevant and that the organisation just does what it wants irrespective of the decisions they contribute towards ?

Re: An update on Cycling UK's Board of Trustees' elections

Is the CTC lost cause, as the trustees and PT won, should we just give up and let the friends of CUK live a live of seeking grants for project and not to use member monies for members benefits? :mrgreen:

Re: An update on Cycling UK's Board of Trustees' elections

It's taken quite a while for me to identify what you've added above. I may have missed something. What is the point of the AGM then, there is no requirement to have AGM. We are not just a Charity, we are also a Company. AIUI Company Law requires the members to vote at AGM to accept the minutes of t...

Re: An update on Cycling UK's Board of Trustees' elections

When and how will the results be announced? I don't see any date etc on the website. Without wanting to suggest anything untoward but things like "pre-selection" by the Executive, only approved candidates being eligible to stand for election, AGM motions being ignored, assurances going &q...

Re: An update on Cycling UK's Board of Trustees' elections

It was stated at the last CTC Council meeting that the CTC has gone from a membership organisation to a project organisation.
