British Horse Society Members' Meetings 2019

23 Apr 2019


As you may know, the Board recently proposed some amendments to the British Horse Society’s Articles of Association, and these were scheduled to be put to a vote at the general meeting held on 5 January. During the meeting, members had the opportunity to comment on the proposed changes, and members asked the Board of Trustees to consider various issues. A resolution to adjourn the meeting was then passed, to allow more time for those issues to be considered. The Board of Trustees has two options:

1. Decide to reconvene the meeting and ask the members to reconsider the original amendments; 


2. Decide to adjourn the meeting indefinitely in order to consider different amendments or none

We have decided to adjourn the meeting indefinitely. That means the vote on the changes to the Articles proposed at that meeting will not go ahead, and a new general meeting will be proposed in due course, at which any proposed changes would be considered afresh. 

In the meantime, the Board of Trustees would like to invite members to contribute to the development of the Board’s plans for the future strategy of The British Horse Society, including the governance issues raised on 5 January. We plan to hold informal meetings, the first three alongside our 2019 National Conventions, at the times and venues below, and would like to extend an open invitation to all members. The meetings will be a chance for the Board and Executive to bring members into the discussion about the future strategy for The British Horse Society, and to allow members to ask questions and give their views.
