An Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of the Friends of Bennerley Viaduct, (FoBV) will take place on Monday, February 25th 2019 at The Gate Inn, Awsworth at 7:00 pm. The FoBV want to convert the group into a registered charity (Charitable Incorporated Organisation CIO) and will require the formal consent of the membership. Securing CIO status has many advantages both for the group and the project and these will be discussed at the meeting. In essence, we are updating and creating a robust, accountable, sustainable and democratic structure to take the project forwards. The membership will need to formally agree to the adoption of a new constitution which will meet the requirements of the Charity Commission.
Members of the FoBV will be eligible to vote on the motions and proposals which will be forwarded to the membership by the end of January 2019. However, whether you are a member or not, you will be welcome at the meeting.
