To SCAS Club Secretaries You may be aware from previous correspondence that SCAS AGM authorised the Council to pursue a change of legal status to Charitable Incorporated Organisation.Executive and Council have done a considerable amount of work on this, and the proposed Constitution after many amendments has now been posted on the website. It will shortly be followed by an accompanying set of Rules, which largely follow the current Rules. Please note that many of the clauses in the Constitution may seem unnecessary, even irrelevant, but it follows as closely as possible the Charity Commission template which all potential CIOs are strongly advised to keep to as closely as possible. It is deliberately kept 'broad--brush', to permit future flexibility in the operation of SCAS without having to return to the Charity Commissioners for approval of minor changes. The Rules establish the details of operation of officers and Council. Clubs are urged to peruse this proposed Constitution and email any comments to the Secretary, either using this address or via the website. The cut-off date for comments in 6 October. The main area for comment is likely to be membership and voting rights.
Club Secretaries are earnestly requested by SCAS Council to ensure that all club members are aware of the SCAS website (even if they assume they are not interested), and that any club member can sign up on the website for automatic notifications when new material is posted. The website will now be the principal mode of communication with all SCAS archers. https://scasarchery.org.uk/
On a quite different tack, Clubs are reminded that nominations for the SCAS President's Medal 2019 are due by 31 December. Christopher Fletcher-CampbellSecretary/TreasurerSouthern Counties Archery Society (SCAS)Abingdon School, Park Road, Abingdon OX14 1DE
