Item 1 – Special Resolution to amend the Constitution (Petition available below)
We, the undersigned members of CCCQ Ltd, request that Mr Rob Harrison, the Secretary of CCCQ Ltd call a Special General Meeting for the purpose of the members of CCCQ Ltd to elect the President and Vice Presidents of CCCQ Ltd rather than the current position requiring the Board to elect the President and Vice Presidents.
The vote for President, Snr Vice President and Jnr Vice President by the members should commence at the next Election of Board Directors to coincide with those elections.
Should the members vote to elect their own President, Senior Vice President and Junior Vice President? And win this vote; I then also submit the following as a guide to be used in this process.
(1) By the deletion of the existing clause 28.3 and the insertion of the following clause in its stead:
(a) At the next AGM, members of CCCQ Limited present in persons or by proxy shall elect one President and two Vice-Presidents from the members of the Board. The President and Vice-Presidents elected at that and subsequent relevant AGMs shall be elected for a term of two (2) years.
(b) The retiring President and Vice-Presidents may offer themselves for re-election upon expiry of their terms.'
(c) Voting shall take place on the basis of 'first past the post'. In the case of the election of the Vice-Presidents, persons eligible to vote will be entitled to cast votes for up to two (2) candidates and the two (2) candidates with the highest number of votes will be elected. A tie in votes for any position will be determined by the drawing of lots. Any position not filled will be treated as a casual vacancy.
Item 2 – Vote of No Confidence in Director Lionel Blumel (Petition available below)
We, the undersigned members of CCCQ Ltd, request that Mr Rob Harrison, the Secretary of CCCQ Ltd call a Special General Meeting for the purpose of the members of CCCQ Ltd to put a Vote of No Confidence in Director Lionel Blumel.
Note 1: All Financial Members are entitled to attend the SGM and vote at the SGM. Any renewing Members from 2014 who are yet to pay their 2015 Renewal Fees may only attend the SGM but may not vote at the SGM.
Note 2: All Financial Members unable to attend have the right to appoint a proxy in accordance with Clauses 55 – 59 of the CCC(Q) Ltd Constitution; this Proxy Form is available from the Dogs Queensland Website.
For an appointment of a proxy for a meeting of the CCC(Q) Ltd’s members to be effective, the following documents must be received by the Secretary at least forty eight (48) hours before the meeting;
(1) the proxy’s appointment; and
(2) if the appointment is signed or otherwise authenticated by the appointer’s attorney, the authority under which the appointment was signed or authenticated or a certified copy of the authority.
