Dear All

The AGM was postponed due to an omission of a constitutional requirement.  In the interest of transparency and fairness it was voted to postpone the AGM to ensure the constitution was followed.  It was brought to the committees attention a lack of knowledge of the constitutional requirements and so we have laid out the issues raised.
