Membership voting for the proposed food subsidy for Club Committee

A proposal for a committee subsidy was made at the DHPC AGM on Saturday, 23 February 2019 by Cris Kent and seconded by Blaise Brogan. This proposal was voted on by those present.
Allows (but is not compulsory) any Committee member, (not volunteers or observers) to claim up to £10 (on production of receipt) for food/non alcoholic drink on club business events (usually committee nights). This subsidy is non transferable to another person, time or purpose and cannot be accumulated. This grant is in addition to any other expenses claimable in the course of conducting club business.

This change was voted in by the Club members and is now part of the DHPC Constitution.


Change to the Club Constitution

The Proposal -  to make it easier to hold a general meeting for the Club by:

  • Reducing the number of members needed to call for and attend a General Meeting from 10% to 5%
  • Clarifying that the quorum (5%) applies to those present at a General Meeting
  • Clarifying that members who cannot attend AGM, can vote electronically

This change was voted in by the Club members and is now part of the DHPC Constitution.
