The management of "The Club" shall be vested in a general committee consisting of the chairman, a secretary, a treasurer and up to six other members, all of whom shall be elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of "The Club" and shall hold office until the conclusion of the next AGM. The retiring general committee shall recommend at each AGM the number of committee members to be appointed in the forthcoming year, subject to the overall limits above.
Candidates for election to the general committee shall be those members of the retiring committee who offer themselves for re-election and such other members of "The Club" who have agreed to accept office if elected and whose nominations, duly proposed and seconded by members of "The Club", shall have been sent to the Secretary not later than 14 days prior to the date fixed for the AGM.
If the number of candidates for election exceeds the number of vacancies to be filled, the elections shall be by ballot of paid up members present at the AGM.
Should a casual vacancy on the general committee arise for any reason, the general committee may co-opt a member to fill the vacancy.
The general committee shall have power to deal with the funds and property of "The Club" and may draw on the funds of "The Club" to meet any expenditure approved by the general committee. However, no single item of expenditure exceeding £150 may be entered into without the approval of the members in general meeting.
The general committee shall have the power to make such Laws and Rules, in accordance with these constitutions and regulations, as it thinks fit as to the management of "The Club" property and for the organisation of "The Club" activities and competitions in accordance with the objects of "The Club".
The general committee shall meet at least three times a year. Three members of the general committee shall form a quorum, the chairman or secretary being in attendance. Emergency meetings of the general committee may be called if the chairman and secretary consider this essential and desirable. The general committee shall have the power to delegate any of its powers and duties to a sub-committee drawn from members of the general committee or members of "The Club", as it thinks fit.
The secretary shall keep a minute book in which shall be entered a record of all general meetings and all meetings of the general committee.
The general committee shall have power to co-opt any member of "The Club", who is willing to serve, to the general committee or any sub-committee.
The general committee may govern its proceedings and establish any guidelines and regulations for the conduct of its duties as it thinks fit, but shall be subject always to any regulations laid down in the Constitution as approved by the members of "The Club" in general meeting.
