    Hey all;
    Thanks for the amendments/suggestions etc.
    I’ll get them added in/amended asap.
    I think we’ve given everyone a fair amount of time to amend the constitution draft; it was up since late October, and mentioned several times in the Facebook group as well as twitter…

    Obviously if others come up, we can easily go to amend after adoption…

    Tim: on the specific of the Edinburgh branch’s meeting; the AGM would be held before-hand, and would be a very short, structured and perfunctory affair; quite simply a legal necessity to enable the group to move on with getting bank accounts at a national level and kickstarting the SCIO process, both of which require a voted, legitimate constitution. Obviously we would like as many people as possible from the group to attend, but in reality, on a legal level, it requires a barest minimum of people. I’d hope it can be done in 20-30 minutes ideally; so this shouldn’t interrupt the Edinburgh branch meeting at all; we’d never at a national level seek to interfere in the affairs of a local branch (which is, should the constitution be approved, an entirely autonomous group); but I do really feel it needs held ASAP – if we wait until the New Year, with people going back to work and financial constraints due to christmas/first pay check of the year etc. I know from experience it can be like pulling teeth to get people to attend a meeting in January, which realistically places us at February/late-Jan at the earliest..add on a few weeks of banks being banks and it could well be March or even April before we can start pushing on with things, and there are mutterings of a snap referendum in early 2019…

    I’d be fine with the 12th, if you’re OK with having the AGM before your meeting…
