Motion to Council in 2006 foe voting on AGM Motions


Historically, Motions from the general membership have been accepted at the AGM. These have always been voted on, and whilst not binding on Council have served the purpose of bringing things to Council=s attention for subsequent discussion and action.

I believe that Council needs and deserves to know which motions have popular support so that a matter that has for example the support of only 51% of the membership would obviously have 49% of the membership against it. Council has become bogged down in recent years because even Council has been split along those lines on many issues.

Whilst still keeping the onus on Council to deliberate and determine on any and all AGM issues, I propose that all matters brought to the AGM be voted on by the membership to help Council in their perception.
