NOTICE OF EXTRA-ORDINARY GENERAL MEETING – 16 AUGUST 2019

At the recent AGM of the Ngapona Assn, it was unanimously decided to remove the requirement that limited the number of Associate Members to 25% of the number of Full Members. In order to change the constitution, we are required to give a minimum of 28 days’ notice to members and the change should then be ratified at a General Meeting of the Association.

It is intended that an Extra-ordinary General Meeting will be held at the conclusion of our lunch at the Birkenhead RSA on 16 August 2019 to change the constitution.
