Change to constitution
At the AGM on 24 May 2001, a change to the constitution was proposed and accepted. The
previous wording was: "Any future committee should reflect the diverse interests of
this industrial group to the extent that it should contain at least four members from
industrial manufacturing companies."
The new wording is: "Any future committee should reflect the diverse interests of
this industrial group."
New committee members
We have three nominees, who have shown remarkable patience and are still willing to
stand for the two vacancies on the committee. In order to make the numbers right, and to
avoid two people from the same company being on the committee, Brian Burlinson will stand
down, but will continue as treasurer (co-opted) until his term of office ends at the AGM
next year. We are delighted to welcome Eian Massey, Mike Kelly and Jim Harvey onto the
I look forward to seeing you soon.
