Certificate of Excellence 2016

The Articles of Association and Memorandum are the written rules that form the constitution for running the company.

From time to time they may need to be amended to take account of changing times and the natural evolution of the railway.

To make permanent changes, the Council of Management need to submit to the Trust membership any proposed amendments at General meetings.

This year we have one change to make.

1) Joint and Family classes of membership, other than a price discount, do not give any additional benefits. The Council would like to increase the number of votes from one to two for each of these classes. Therefore it is proposed Article 7 is amended as follows:

"Article 7:  The classes of individual memberships shall be –
(a) Individual – any person over 18 years of age - entitled to one vote at general meetings.
(b) Joint - two partners, both over 18 years of age – entitled to two votes at general meetings.
(c) Family – two partners and all children under 14 years of age – entitled to two votes at general meetings.
(d) Junior – between 14 and 18 years of age – not entitled to vote at general meetings."
