The Irish Limousin Cattle Society will hold a special general meeting in just under a fortnight, a spokesperson has confirmed.
The SGM will take place directly following the society’s AGM (annual general meeting) at Racket Hall, Roscrea, Co. Tipperary, on Wednesday, November 16th, 2022.
A statement from the society – which it released on Friday, November 4th, 2022 – reads as follows:
“The purpose of the SGM is to consider and, if thought fit, to adopt the following two proposals.”
“A motion to disband the present society council in its entirety be proposed and a new council to be elected by members in accordance with the rules of the society.”
“Secondly, to arrange and select a committee to run the society affairs (temporarily) with office staff until the new council is elected and in office,” the spokesperson added.
The AGM’s agenda includes minutes of the preceding AGM, a president’s report, a presentation of audited annual accounts and auditor’s report, the election of council members, the appointment of auditors and any other business.
