Disability Labour recognises the need for our constitution to clarify that 40 days notice of General Meetings means 40 clear days. This gives our members 40 complete days notice.
We therefore agree to change section M of our constitution to:
M. Special General Meetings.
The Executive Committee may call a special general meeting of the group at any time. If at least sixty percent (60%) of its members request such a meeting in writing stating the business to be considered the General Secretary shall call such a meeting. At least 40 clear days’ notice must be given. The notice must state the date, place and the business to be discussed. Only business included in the notice may be transacted. This notice is both the preliminary and final notice of such a meeting.
