Dear writers & readers,
The Centre’s AGM was held on Friday April 20th, but was adjourned to give members time to consider the situation. The AGM will be reconvened at Hadley’s Hotel on Friday May 4th at 5.30pm. All members are urged to attend.
Although they will continue to assist the Centre up until the resumed AGM, the members of the existing Board have submitted their resignations, and will not be renominating. As a result, the first task of the resumed AGM will be to decide on a member to chair the resumed meeting and to oversee the election of a new Board of Management.
Members can acquaint themselves with the Centre’s Constitution – which is available below, and on the website. The current crowdfunding campaign is being continued so as not to pre-empt any decision by the membership and in the hope that funds may still be generated to enable the Centre to continue. Unless there is a significant change in the Centre’s financial circumstances over the next 12 days, the options available to the membership will be either to close the Centre and wind up its affairs or to reduce its operations to the bare minimum and continue as an associated body.
