    CV AGM overdue

    The CV Executive meeting on 9th November mentions the AGM is scheduled for the 4th February 2017.

    As per the CV constitution the CV AGM is supposed to be held in October or November.

    As such it would seem CV are in breach of their constitution.

    But what happens if CV breaches its own constitution? Is it punishable? If not..then its just a clerical issue.

    Technically, there are two avenues. As CV is a club based structure, it is up to the clubs to decide what they want to do. I have not read the constitution and so my comments are only based on general knowledge of similar situations, but if enough of the required clubs wanted to force the issue, they could call for a Special General Meeting over the issue.

    Also, incorporated associations are required to file their documents to their relevant Office of Fair Trading or the like (the job of the Secretary) by a certain date. And if this filing is delayed, then usually this filing needs to be explained, otherwise the incorporated status of the Association can be called into question for failing to meet its base requirements under the constitution.

    Well, we can be pretty sure none of the 2 scenarios are going to take place
