In 2017, the SCAS AGM agreed to move SCAS towards incorporation -
instead of an unincorporated association - to provide a more secure
basis for holding SCAS assets and to provide additional legal protection
for officers and officials doing their job. The Resolution asked Council
to investigate possible legal forms and to make arrangements for
incorporation at a future meeting.
Any incorporated structure will require SCAS to have a small board of
Trustees or Directors. However, SCAS includes County organisations,
Clubs and individuals, and we want to choose a governance structure that
continues to give all these a role and a say in how SCAS operates.
Incorporation also allows us to look at our membership structure.
We are therefore seeking views on a number of possible options. These
are set out in the discussion paper available at https://scasarchery.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/Future_SCAS_structure_consultation_v1.pdf
You can express your views on these proposals by
- Responding to the online questionnaire at http://bit.ly/SCAS_structure
- Writing to your County's SCAS Representative
The proposals will also be discussed at the 2019 SCAS AGM; club
Secretaries will have details. Space is limited at the AGM so you must
tell the SCAS Secretary if you wish to attend in person. If we cannot
accommodate everybody who wants to attend the AGM discussion, SCAS is
prepared to hold a separate meeting and clubs will be advised of that
after the AGM.
