Changes to General Meeting Regulations

The Board has agreed revisions to the General Meeting Regulations to introduce a new section on voting which sets out how members can vote online and at meetings, and how these votes will be accounted for. The wording in this section also clarifies the meaning of para 12 and 13 of the Charter in that members voting online are counted as ‘present’. The Board has also taken the opportunity to update some other elements of the General meeting regulations to try and apply consistent wording and make them clearer to read.

The revised regulations are on the website www.archaeologists.net/codes/cifa.
