Governance Zoom

At 6pm, Tuesday 14 November

The Mensa Board will be holding a Zoom call at 6pm on Tuesday 14 November to consult members on proposed changes to the Board Regulations. 

Following the passing of a number of motions to amend the Memorandum and Articles of Association at our recent Annual General Meeting, the Board would like to make a couple of small amendments to the Board Regulations to keep them in line. New article 3.2.1.3 stipulates that the closing date for submission of motions for a General Meeting may not be less than 30 days after the notice of the meeting is sent to members. However, Board Regulation 15 puts this date at not less than 28 days after the notice. We would like to change this to 30 days, to be in line with the articles.

The second change follows the amendment to article 2.4.3.1, to allow test administrators who are also directors to be paid at the same rate as other test administrators. It previously stated that directors could not receive any remuneration at all, which contradicted Board Regulation 28 which allowed for this exception. Now that it is covered by article 2.4.3.1, the Board Regulation can be deleted.

To join the Zoom call, please register your interest with Carolyn Skitt via: CarolynS@mensa.org.uk by 12 noon on Monday 13 November and the Zoom link will be emailed to you. Unfortunately, late registrations may not be admitted to the call.
