LRALC proposed new Articles of Association - proxy vote of the membership - October 2023

You will remember we held an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) in February 2023 via Zoom to consider a small yet urgent change to LRALC's Articles of Association. The motion on that occasion was carried by a significant majority. Thank you if your Council took part in that decision, either by attending the meeting remotely or by recording a proxy vote.

At the time we told you that that we would be carrying out a larger review of the Articles as a whole. With the advice of our solicitors, the Board of Directors have now completed this review. On 18th September your Council received, via email, a letter setting out the proposed changes, a copy of the existing Articles and a copy of the proposed new Articles, proposed by the LRALC Board of Directors, for you to consider and compare.

This was the first full review of the Articles since they were registered five years ago. The proposed changes are limited in extent and reflect the changing work of local councils and LRALC in the context of company law and changes in society.

Your Council is invited to vote for adoption of the new Articles, via your Council's registration of a proxy vote on the matter. A reminder that the member of LRALC is the council.

The deadline for the proxy voting process has been extended to 5.00pm on Monday 30th October.

The Annual General Meeting will be held in person from 4pm on Wednesday 15th November 2023 at Mountsorrel Memorial Centre. This will be held in accordance with the proposed Articles, should they be adopted.

Your Council is thanked for its prompt consideration of the proposed changes and for your subsequent voting when requested.
