INTA EGM Sunday 30th May

On Sunday 30th May 2021 the new constitution was shared with members.

Following the presentation of the new constitution the solicitor provided the opportunity for any members' questions regarding the new constitution and provided clarification where needed before final vote could be taken.

Any areas that members found confusing or needed any clarification on were fully addressed by the solicitor and ample opportunity was provided to address any areas of concern.

Once the clarification was provided and all questions answered the members voted with a majority to adopt the new constitution.
