PROPOSALS TO BE MADE AT THE 2013 AGM
At their September meeting the Committee considered a suggestion made by a member that, in this 40th anniversary year, the six surviving Guild members who attended the inaugural meeting in March 1973 to investigate reforming the Guild should be accorded Honorary Life Membership of the Guild. The proposal was agreed (the two founder members at the meeting abstaining from the discussion and the subsequent vote). Accordingly, the following proposal will be made at the AGM by the Guild Master on behalf of the Committee:-
"The Committee proposes that Honorary Life Membership of the Guild be conferred on those surviving members who attended the inaugural meeting on 30th March 1973. These members are John Nicholls, Michael Fairfax, Clinton (Clint) Evans, Malcolm Stewart and Christopher Povey. The sixth surviving member, the Rev Frederick Rothery, is already a Life Member."
In addition, a second proposal was considered and agreed, and will be made by the Guild Master:-
"That Mrs Phyllis Brazier, currently a Vice-President, be accorded Honorary Life Membership of the Guild."
For these proposals to be passed the Guild Rules require at least 75% of those members attending and able to vote to be in favour. (If attending, those members to whom either of these proposals apply will be unable to vote. Their number will be deducted from the total of those members at the AGM able to vote.)
GUILD METAL LAPEL BADGES
At long last, the new Guild lapel badge is here. It is slightly different to the previous version, as its design is the same as the clothing badges (the now 'standard' Guild badge). It is slightly '3D' too, as the features are raised.
£4 each from the Hon Sec.
(The original badges cost £1 in 1976!)
