Plus they have added the option for motions to be classified as 'Out of order', a provision not included in the old AoA.
I'm sure you are aware that it was already within the powers of the Trustees to classify Motions as "Out of order" before this year's changes to the AoA.
Putting it into the AoA provides greater clarity on the matter.
In 2016 I had 5 motions submitted and all accepted, in some previous years motions also, all accepted, never any discussion or details referring of 'out of order'.

In 2017 13 motions submitted, about half rejected as 'out of order'. So I was not aware of the 'out of order' requirement, as it was not in the AoA, that simply stated a motion can be put by one member and seconded by another, they did not include subject to approval.
It was raised last year at the AGM and no good reason was provided for leaving it out of the new AoA. Even if was provided for in some legal framework, it does not tell the members about their rights to put motions. It needs to be included in the AoA for clarity.
