As has previously been discussed at Council, the Guild has been reviewing its democracy and governance. The first of the proposed changes relate to elections, referendums, & voting and elected officers and representatives (further changes will be addressed at a subsequent Council meeting).

To adopt these changes, Byelaw 3 and Byelaw 4 need to be replaced. Trustee Board will consider and vote on them on Monday 11 January 2021. If Council also votes for them, they become the byelaws. 

Paper: Byelaws 3 & 4 (2021). [NB: Trustee Board may make changes to this paper at the meeting Monday 11 Jan. Such changes will be circulated to Councillors on Tuesday 12 Jan, to be considered Wed 13 Jan.]
