Does CEO/Council plan to ignore the result of the poll?

Postby SA_SA_SA » 7 Apr 2016, 11:37am

Given that the re-brand went ahead at full steam despite knowledge of an impending members poll, I wonder whether the CEO/Council simply intend to ignore the result of the poll and argue they must "act in the best interests of the charity" not just what members say. If they do that, I presume they are hoping disgruntled members don't see the point in taking them to court? Is that likely?

Maybe they are just confident of winning. In the meantime, they aren't obliged to maintain the status quo.

I am still awaiting a reply from the CTC in regard to the poll.
But i did consider that they may just put the question to members do you like our new brand, with no reasons given on either side?
