Charity considers changes to structure

Structural changes will be under discussion when the Butchers' and Drovers' Charitable Institution (BDCI) holds its annual general meeting next month. The charity will also consider a change from being an unincorporated entity into a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

The AGM takes place at 11.30am on Monday, 8 June 2009 at Butchers' Hall and is open to all those who have made a donation to the charity of not less than £10. This includes individuals, businesses or other organisations and all have the opportunity to vote on agenda items. These will include receiving the financial report and accounts for the period ended 31 December 2008 and electing the charity's honorary officers and a council of management. One important topic of discussion will be a proposal for a new structure for the board of trustees and subcommittees, to be implemented at the earliest opportunity after the AGM.

BDCI president Richard Cracknell is keen to see a good attendance from across the industry. He said: "This year's AGM will be considering some very important issues associated with the charity's future. I encourage as many as possible to come along and contribute to the debate."

Those planning to attend the AGM should inform the Clerk to the Trustees, Mr Paul Neale, at the BDCI, 105 St Peter's Street, St Albans, Herts, AL1 3EJ; tel: 01727 896094; fax: 01727 896026;
