    The whole special resolution and voting process seems, how can I put this?, a little confusing and obscure this time around. is that conspiracy or incompetence? as it's BSAC I suppose it could be either, but it does seem odd.

    As it's BSAC it's probably both.

    Yea, I had to stop a read it. The online voting system was contracted out, so I'm guessing it was a lack of clarity in communicating to the contractor what was required. Long story short if you intend to participate in the AGM (it'll be online) then ignore the delegate voting bit, otherwise click through that and enter your delegate preferences. At least that's how I interpreted it....

    Def don't take as gospel!

    Changes to the Articles to have a proper procedure when a member has been accused of some action that could result in their membership being revoked brings BSAC into line with common practise. On it's own I would support the change.

    Removing the requirement for at least 5 ordinary Council members to be present at Council meetings would allow the 5 Officers to control Council. This is partly what allowed the 1998/99 financial crises to happen. I'm dead set against this being changed. Additionally, if individuals are on Council they need to show commitment and attend Board meetings - when I was last on Council dates were decided nearly 2 years in advance.

    I mentioned earlier that I believe the magazine is an essential communication and recruiting tool and should be retained. Yes, the current Council might not plan to do away with it, but a future Council could.
    Thanks for taking the time go through that and share your takes. Some sound analysis there.
