The current articles have been accepted by most people as needing review for a number of years. This was discussed back in 2016 by the National Council but was clearly given emphasis by the Motion of No Confidence. The ORG was formed and reported in Nov 17, with their amended report issued in Mar 18.
Through 2017, various discussions were held with Sport England as we approached, and passed their compliance deadlines. In Feb 2018 the BMC were told that they needed to be compliant by Aug 18 as an absolute deadline.
At the Feb 18 NC meeting it was agreed that the National Council needed to “Produce a set of recommendations to take to a June AGM, taking legal advice on what is possible, to enable us to meet Sport England’s requirements for continued funding” and in Mar 18 the Implementation Group TORs were agreed by the NC.
The current articles require that the BMC must hold an AGM in June, at the latest, and that matters for the AGM must be issued 60 days before the AGM. Therefore the proposals must be submitted by 30 Apr 18.
