Charity Option Vote
Following the positive membership vote in August 2021 at the Annual General Meeting on the SDSA becoming a charity, the membership now need to decide on which type of charity structure to adopt.
There are two main things to consider when deciding on a charity structure:
- Whether the charity should be run by trustees only, or whether it should have a wider membership.
- Whether to have an incorporated structure or to take the simpler, but sometimes riskier, choice of being unincorporated.
For your reference, the SDSA committee have discussed this and our preferred option for the SDSA as a charity is to be run by the wider membership just as it currently does as an Association, and to remain unincorporated and to be an Unincorporated Charitable Association
If you wish to vote in person, there will be an EGM on Monday 20th December at 6pm and you can get the zoom link by emailing [email protected].
Can you please let us know your preferences in the voting form below.
