SGM to vote on converting to CIO
Friends of Alton Station
Having taken on-board the Network Rail deadline on April 2018, we have decided that in order to take ownership of the footbridge, we need to set ourselves up as a 'Charitable Incorporated Organisation' (CIO). In order to make this change, we need to ask our members for approval, so we are holding a Special General Meeting (SGM) on Thursday 11th May 2017, 8pm, Alton Community Centre.
As well as voting on the change to CIO status and the new constitution for this purpose, we will also update those present on the latest news. Notices have gone out to existing members, along with subscription renewal invoices. Non-members may attend, but may not vote unless they join on the night. Members who have not renewed may also pay on the night.
If the CIO is approved, it will take a while for the Charity Commission to approve it. Once done, we will then start the process of fund-raising. In the mean time, we have the task of getting Network Rail on our side.
You can find the link to the PDF download of the proposed constitution on our 'How We are Run' page.
