Consultations

As LINX is an organisation run by its members, the members are consulted about any proposed changes to the way LINX is run and its formal governance documents.

Any proposed changes are first raised at a quarterly LINX member conference, but proposals are then summarised here before being brought as a formal resolution to be voted on by the members at a General Meeting of LINX – usually held at the February or November member conferences.

Current Consultations

Spring 2022: Changes to Articles and MoU

This consultation concerns proposed amendments to the Articles of Association and the Memorandum of Understanding. These are relatively minor technical improvements, not a substantial change to our governance.

The changes to the Articles

  1. Clarify who chairs the General Meeting, by inserting an explicit provision in the Articles; and
  2. Provide for a power of temporary adjournment of the General Meeting.

The changes to the MoU would empower the Board to lift the suspension of a member whose membership has been suspended, and to reimpose it, if certain conditions are met.

A member consultation paper sets out the details of these changes and the reasoning behind them. There is also a redline version of the Articles and the MoU.

The Board intend to proposed these amendment for ratification at the AGM to be held at LINX 116 in May. So that the Board may consider any comments received, we ask that responses are sent to consultations@linx.net by 30th April.
