Extraordinary General Meeting

Notice is hereby given that an Extraordinary General Meeting of the members of Cardiff Amateur Athletic Club will be held on Monday 26th November 2018.

The Extraordinary General Meeting will commence immediately following conclusion of the Annual General Meeting to consider and, if thought fit, to approve the following Special Resolution. 

Special Resolution:

Pursuant to clause 25 of its constitution, the club shall on 31st December 2018 ("the winding up date") wind up and its assets, goodwill and rights be transferred to Cardiff Athletics, a company No. 11549129 without a share capital and limited by guarantee; provided that the general committee shall be authorised to postpone the winding up date, and if it deems it reasonably necessary.


Note: To be passed, a Special Resolution requires not less than three quarters of those entitled to vote (and who do so) to be in favour of the resolution.


Since its origins in 1882 the club has been constituted as a members' organisation. This has been perfectly satisfactory and worked well over all those years, but times move on. The club is now a much larger and more complex organisation, taking on legal, contractual and employment responsibilities. Because of this, the general committee took advice and has decided to convert the club into a limited liability company as described in the Resolution. This would be a more suitable structure for the future and would protect members and the committee from risks.

From a practical point of view, few changes will be noticed day by day and the club will continue to operate much as before.


By order of the General Committee.
