Standing Orders Revisions
The results of the Members' vote on the changes to the Society's Standing Orders were also announced at the Annual General Meeting. Two thirds of those Members voting needed to be in favour for the resolutions to be carried. All three resolutions were carried by those Members who voted:
Resolution 1 - to amend the Royal Charter: For 399, Against 12
Resolution 2 - to amend the Statutes: For 401, Against 12
Resolution 3 - to amend the By-Laws: For 403, Against 12
The changes approved by the LMS Membership will now be put to the Privy Council, for formal approval. It is hoped that the revised Standing Orders will be in force early in 2020. Many thanks to all those Members who voted.
