Constitution changes

Sunday 4th March 2018

The Europa Club Committee recommends a change to a new Constitution be ratified at the 2018 AGM. The new 2018 Europa Club Constitution reflects legislative changes on equality, the increasingly  international nature of the club, natural justice, e-commerce and other changes. A copy of the proposed Constitution appears in the Constitution section of the Europa website and in the Europa Flyer preceding the AGM.

Rule on the amendment of rules in the legacy Constitution.

ALTERATION OF RULES — No amendment or alteration to the Constitution shall be made except at the Annual General Meeting by a two-thirds majority of the members present. In exceptional circumstances an amendment may be decided by a ballot (conducted by mail or e-mail). The Committee is empowered to make emergency rules which must be published in the next club newsletter and submitted to the next Annual General Meeting.

This would become the 7th change of Constitution. The last prior was 2014.
