Corrections to the content of Notices for WPCS AGM 2014

Members are notified that three amendments/corrections are required to the Notices and documentation sent to members in relation to the forthcoming AGM, to be held on Saturday 5th April 2041 at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff.

Members will be notified of corrections 1 and 2 at the AGM prior to the vote taking place.

The necessity to make these corrections does not affect the validity of the Notices already sent to members.

1.       Articles of Association

Further legal advice has been received to confirm that the last sentence in Article 40 - Application of Surplus Funds on Winding up should be removed. This has been deemed a minor correction, as the sentence is simply no longer required. Article 40 should therefore read as follows (deletion shown for clarity but will not appear in final Articles):

40.       Application of Surplus Funds on Winding up

If upon the winding up or dissolution of the Society there remains, after the satisfaction of all its debts and liabilities, any property whatsoever, the same shall not be paid to or distributed among the members of the Society, but shall be given or transferred to some other charitable institution or instructions having objects similar to the Primary Objects and which shall prohibit the distribution of its or their income and property among its or their members to an extent at least as great as is imposed on the Society under or by virtue of Article 7 hereof, such institution or instructions to be determined by the members of the Society at or before the time of dissolution and if so far as effect cannot be given to such provision, then to some charitable object. We, the several persons whose names and addresses are subscribed, are desirous of being formed into a Company in pursuance of these Articles of Association.

2.         Agenda item 7.2 Life Membership Fees

The age category “41 to 50” should read “41 to 59”, to read as follows:

  •  Under 21                             -           £950
  • 21 to 40                              -           £750
  • 41 to 59                              -           £550
  • 60 and over (new category)    -           £350
