Report on the rate of progress on the full implementation of CTC AGM 2016 motions

Postby Philip Benstead » 12 Aug 2016, 3:30pm

FAO David Cox
Chair CTC
Dear David

Report on the rate of progress on the full implementation of CTC AGM 2016 motions

CTC members would welcome a report on the rate progress on the full implementation of these motions that were pass at the CTC AGM 2016; we would welcome if that report was published on the CTC/CUK website ASAP. For the state transparently this communication will be place on the CTC Forum and the Facebook group WERE CTC SHOULD BE GOING.

6) ELECTIONS TO COUNCIL

This AGM proposes that candidates must have been fully paid-up members for least a year prior to the closing date for nominations. Candidates shall state on their election address the date they joined CTC and length of time as members.
Proposer’s note: There has been concern at the short time some new councilors had been members. Some had been members less than one year. Candidates must be sufficiently committed/knowledgeable of CTC to be able
to comply with the requirement that they can
‘represent the full diversity of membership’.
Proposer Tim Court,
Seconder William Goodge

7) ACCEPTANCE OF MOTIONS

This AGM proposes that any amended
or rejected motions should be published (redacted if confidential personal information is involved) on the website with subsequent communications.

Proposer’s note: This will show that the Agenda Committee has correctly dealt with motions as stated by Orders in Council and Standing Orders as at 12th May 2004, ‘The Committee may at its discretion re-draft a motion in order to prevent its rejection or to make it more intelligible but in any such revision the Committee shall not alter the sense or purpose of the motion without the consent of the proposer.’
Proposer Charles Halliday,
Seconder Michael Simmons


8) REPORTING REMUNERATION OF CTC STAFF

This AGM proposes that CTC follow the recommendations of NCVO – Report of the Inquiry into Charity Senior Executive Pay: https://www.ncvo.org.uk/images/documents/ about us/our-finances-and-pay/Executive_ Pay_Report.pdf
Proposer’s note: Report shows the need for transparency/openness, that show trustees are fulfilling their legal obligations. The report’s main recommendations in brief are as follows.
• It is good practice to publish the remuneration, job titles and the names of their highest-paid.
• It is good practice to publish the reasons to justify the amounts and explain how they reflect the charity’s ethos and values.
• It is good practice to publish in both annual accounts/websites.
Proposer Peter Kanssen,
seconder David Aylett

9) CTC COUNCIL ELECTION PROCESS
This AGM proposes that Council elections will be undertaken through the Electoral Reform Services, initially for a trial period. There should be a period of 30 days between the issue of ballot papers and the deadline for returning them to the Returning Officer.

Proposer’s note: Using ERS will permit votes to be collected via the internet, reducing the cost
of administration, with provision made for non- internet users. Staff to be strictly impartial so that no questions can be raised about the propriety of the voting system.
Proposer Rupert Gardner,
seconder John Frederick Osborne

Thank you for your help in this matter.

Unless I'm mistaken I saw Professor Cox out on his bike this morning, cycling with a couple of other chaps just north of Stratford-upon-Avon ... although he knows me, he didn't (if it was him) acknowledge me ...
