The following changes to our statutes will be proposed by the board of New Europeans Association Ltd to the meeting:
New Clause 3 - Objects
The objects of the association are:-
For the public benefit to:
a)To assist and counsel EU and EEA citizens resident in the UK and UK citizens resident in the EU and EEA who are in need, by reason of age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship, homelessness, being victims/survivors of domestic violence, being victims of human trafficking or other disadvantage, by the provision of education, information and support on lawfully retaining or obtaining the right to reside and work in the UK and/or in the EU and EEA
b)To develop the capacity and skills of EU and EEA citizens resident in the UK to participate in its civic and democratic life.
c) To foster understanding between EU and EEA citizens resident in the UK and other members of society.
d) Other charitable activities.
Rationale: The new objects better describe our UK operations and will facilitate our application for charitable status.
In addition the board would like to remove the following sub-clauses:
APPOINTMENT OF DIRECTORS
22. Methods of appointing directors
(c) No director may be appointed if more than half the directors would, following the appointment(s), be of one gender.
(d) No director may be appointed if less than half the directors would, following the appointment(s), be citizens of EU member states excluding the UK
Rationale: The sub-clauses are now redundant as we meet these requirements without the need for quotas.
