There is a Special Resolution on the agenda and this relates to changes to the Articles of Association for British Carriagedriving. The attached document shows the changes in track. The proposed changes are intended to allow BC to register as a CASC (Community Amateur Sports Club). We will thereafter be able to claim gift aid repayment on donations amongst other benefits.

The Articles of Association, to which the Special Resolution refers, can be viewed here (PDF document).

Council are keen to encourage more people to put their names forward to take an active part in running British Carriagedriving. We plan to trial having two of the winter Council meetings take place at weekends to try and encourage more members to put their names forward for election.

The existing Council members are happy to chat about what is involved, so please approach them for further information or contact the BC office.
