Scottish Government legislation and the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 introduced provisions allowing more flexibility for holding virtual meetings for corporate bodies, including SCIOs, charitable companies, co-operatives, community benefit societies and friendly societies. The deadline for groups registered with OSCR to amend their rules or articles of association to allow them to legally conduct AGM and similar meetings using remote technology needs to be in place by 30th March 2021.
In order to allow us flexibility to conduct General Meetings and our AGM online, we will need to amend our Articles of Association (revised version attached) to make it ‘future proof’ and explicitly allow virtual meetings. We propose the following Special Resolution;
Amend Clause 14.2 to: “Any or all of the members may participate in general meetings by means of electronic communication provided that throughout the meeting all persons participating in the meeting are able to communicate interactively with all other parties participating in the meeting. Participation in this manner is deemed to constitute presence in person at the meeting for quorum purposes”.
You can return the attached proxy vote herehttps://form.123formbuilder.com/5844366/form by 4.30pm on Wednesday 24 March. Alternatively, you can attend a very short General Meeting at 10am on Thursday 25 March via zoom
