Motion 6 at that AGM stated that "CTC Councillors shall take the wishes of the membership into account when interpreting the Articles of Association of the club and when deciding how to implement the objectives of the club". This motion was carried (almost unanimously).
How then have the Councillors taken the wishes of the membership into account over this issue of completely changing the focus and image of the club, when they have not actually bothered to ask what those wishes are?
Has Council not simply ignored the approved motion carried in 2015?
It's a non sequitur to presume that "take the wishes of the membership into account" would automatically mean "follow the wishes of the membership" - to do so would be illegal given their position as trustees.
Their primary frame of reference has to be the best interests of the organisation in the light of its objectives, where this diverges from the wishes of the membership they have to follow the former.
