There was also concern about the lack of official rules. The constitution of the old Progress Association has not been found yet. Jim wanted us to just go by the established practice, but there were concerns that this not being written down is subject to the possibly differing memories of just a few people. An alternative is to adopt the Model Rules from the Department of Fair Trading (the government body that oversees Progress Associations), and then make a few amendments that meet our requirements. A committee (Colin, Kali, Amit and myself) will work on this before the next meeting and come up with recommendations for the interim. The challenge is to come up with both a set of rules, and way of running meetings that are in line with each other, and are legally defensible while reflecting our desire for efficient, fun meetings.
