LCF EVENTS CALENDAR AND KEY DATES
As you may be aware, a longtime LCF member has put himself forward for the position of Chair this year and I also intend to stand. Since a contested election is a unique for the LCF, the Officers have postponed the AGM to allow for the question of the Constitution to be finalised first at the EGM so that the governance of LCF is clear. I would like to emphasise that this timing will in no way preclude or prevent the election - it is simply delayed to ensure proper governance.
In order to hold this election, the LCF must have a lawful Constitution. The proposed Constitution can be found here. At the last General Meeting comments were solicited (3 were received), consideration was given to them and as well as feedback from Tower Hamlets, those comments are summarised here.
The Executive shall publish the procedure for a fair and democratic election once a new constitution is ratified. The date of the AGM is therefore provisionally set for April 8th this will include a formal mailing from the candidates, and an opportunity for a Q&A.
On 4th March 2020 at 7:30 pm at Barley Mow Estate Veterans Club the LCF will hold an Extraordinary Meeting with the singular purpose to ratify the proposed LCF 2019 Constitution.
I desire to continue to lead the LCF for 2020, however, whoever is elected, the LCF will have a lawful, sound, legitimate and valid constitution to take it into the future.
I hope to see you on March 4th.
