The Board of Management has decided to convene an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Association, to be held at 11.00 a.m. on Saturday 30th April 2022 at Lord Roberts Centre.

An EGM is a meeting to consider business requiring the approval of the whole membership, but which does not fall within the categories of competent business of an Annual General Meeting.

The purpose of the meeting will be to approve by a Special Resolution a small number of amendments to the Articles of Association. These amendments are recommended by the Board of Management and are designed to achieve two objectives made possible by current internet technology.

  1. To allow official notices to be published via email and on the NSRA website, in addition to the existing methods of issue by post, publication in On Target and newspapers and posting by notice at the NSRA Registered Office. This will improve efficiency and be more cost effective.
  2. To allow members to participate in general meetings through Zoom or another electronic platform, and in doing so to be able to speak and to exercise their voting rights. This will improve the democratic process as it will allow greater participation from members who are spread over a wide geographic area and will also reduce the NSRA’s carbon footprint.

The official notice and agenda of the meeting, together with details of the proposed changes, will be published in the Spring 2022 edition of On Target, which is due to be issued on or around 9th March. The details will also be made available on the NSRA website at about the same time.

For members who wish to vote on the proposals, but are unable to attend the EGM in person, our usual proxy voting arrangements will be in place. The proxy form will be available with the agenda.
