The Society is now incorporated

  • April 23, 2019

Message from the Society Chairman

I was informed last Thursday that the Society is now incorporated as the Manchester & District Rugby Union Referees Society Ltd, Company Number 11952818.  The Society is now a Company Limited by Guarantee.

This means that the AGM will be conducted as the first AGM of the company and in accordance with the Articles of Association of the company.  The Articles extend to some thirty pages and have been posted on the website for reference.  Also posted is the Certificate of Incorporation.

The two Directors of the company are Mike Hamlin and me.  We will serve as Directors until the AGM at which point we will retire, though we will be eligible for re-election as Directors.

The Executive decided that the Directors of the company should be those persons elected at the AGM as President; Vice-President; Chairman; Vice-Chairman; Honorary Secretary; Honorary Treasurer and Honorary Solicitor.  Nominations will need to be received by the Honorary Secretary by 1st May 2019.  The election of the other Officers of the Society will also be held at the AGM, in the usual way.

The incorporation of the Society clears the way for the application to become a Voting Member of the RFU.
