Minutes of Extraordinary General Meeting of Maxton 21
held on Tuesday 15th December 2015

Present: Jimmy, Janet, Charlie, Elvira, Priscilla, Tom, Isobel, Kim, Eileen, Tony, Helen, Ron, Geoff, Rhona, Penny, Gavin.

The sole purpose of this Extraordinary General Meeting was for the members to consider and approve a proposal to change the Constitution of Maxton 21 to permit an application by Maxton 21 to become a Charitable Trust (SCIO) .
After discussion, the proposal was put to the vote and 15 of the 16 members present approved the proposal. The 16th abstained.

Accordingly, an application will be made for a two tier SCIO.

Gavin volunteered to undertake the completion of the application, supported , if necessary, by guidance from Jan Laing of The Bridge.
To allow him to do this, it was decided that the next meeting of Maxton 21 on Tuesday 12th January 2016 would be the Annual General Meeting. The Accounts for 2015 would, however, not be available, as the completion and auditing would still be in process. They would be presented by the new Committee to members at a later date.
