Governance Change Suggestions

Club Rules

We have reviewed the Club Rules in an attempt to ensure that current working practices of the Club are reflected where appropriate within the Club Rules.  An alteration to the Club Rules requires the consent of at least two thirds of the Members present and voting at a general meeting.

It is our belief that none of these changes materially affect the governance or day to day running of the Club, they merely reflect the changes in working practice that have evolved since the rules were last reviewed in 2014.

The following revisions are therefore suggested for approval by the Members.  


The Members - Section 10


10. The Membership subscription year is January to December. The initial subscription may

include an enrolment fee. New Members who join after 31 August shall be Members and

subscribe and pay in full until the end of the following Membership subscription year.


Suggested Revision


10.  Upon joining the Club, Members are required to pay their initial annual subscription which may include an enrolment fee.  Thereafter Members are required to pay the annual subscription fee on the anniversary of their joining whilst they remain a Member.


The Members - Section 16


16. No Member shall be allowed to take part in any Club activity unless he/she complies

with the Rules of the Club.


Suggested Revision

19. The Board shall comprise the Chairperson, the Treasurer, the Company Secretary, the

Road Secretary, the Mountain Bike Secretary all of whom are to be elected and dismissed

in accordance with the Memorandum and Articles of Association of VC GODALMING +

Secretary and the Membership Secretary, each of the three secretaries shall retire annually

at the close of the AGM and may offer themselves for reappointment by the Board if they so

choose. Additional Members may be co-opted at the discretion of the Board from time to

time.
