PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION

The executive committee propose the following amendment to the constitution of the Camberwell Society under paragraph 14 of the constitution, which will be proposed to members at the 2022 Annual General Meeting:

In paragraph 6(1) “in” shall be replaced with “by the end of”, and “audited” shall be replaced by “independently examined”

Notes:

  1. The amendments have the effect on the paragraph as follows:

(1) An Annual General Meeting shall be held by the end of the month of may in each year or as soon as practicable thereafter to receive the Executive Committee's report and independently examined accounts and to elect officers and members of the Executive Committee.

  1. The first amendment is to enable the AGM to be held earlier in the year (& not so close to open gardens).
  2. The second amendment is housekeeping, as for governing documents dated before 1 March 1992 (when the audit exemption provisions of the Charities Act 1992 came into force), audit is taken to mean some form of independent scrutiny. Accounts have since then been subject to an independent examination as laid out in Charity Commission guidance CC32

Robert Wainwright, Secretary
