EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING (EGM) HELD VIA SKYPE AT 7.00PM ON 26 AUGUST 2021


1. The proposals for the EGM to consider

The EGM had been convened to vote on 3 proposals.  These were:

-Proposal 1 – That NSAD should submit an application to IAM Roadsmart to expand its business operation to include motorcyclists.

-Proposal 2 – That NSAD should change its registered name from North Staffs Advanced Drivers to North Staffs Advanced Drivers and Riders (NSADR).

-Proposal 3 – That the Group Committee be provided with the necessary delegated authority (by the Group membership) to negotiate with IAM Roadsmart on the details of the changes in proposals 1 and 2.

After a presentation by the Group Chairman and discussion amongst the members present the three proposals were put to the vote.


2. Vote on the proposals and inclusion of email votes and proxy votes

-Three email votes had been received in favour of all three proposals.

-There were two proxy votes on the evening both were in favour of the all three proposals.

-There were eight members of NSAD attending the EGM and all were in favour of all three proposals.

-The final result was 13 votes in favour, none against and no abstentions.


3. Conclusion Those NSAD members present at the EGM thought the strength of the vote now provided the Group Chairman with sufficient authority to approach IAM Roadsmart with the proposals; without the requirement for the NSAD Committee to meet and discuss the matter further.  The Group Chairman was therefore actioned by the EGM to approach IAM Roadsmart as soon as practical with the proposals.
