Resolutions Passed at 2013 AGM
At this years Celtic League annual general meeting (AGM) four resolutions were passed, one of which was passed as an emergency resolution.
It was decided at the 2012 AGM that Standing Orders would be “strictly upheld at AGMs, with particular regard to the timely submission of resolutions. Setting Standing Orders aside to be kept for exceptional circumstances/motions and not used for resolutions to be put on agenda en bloc.” (See www.celticleague.net for further information about past resolutions). As a result of this decision, at this years’ AGM the Convenor did not allow any further resolutions to be put forward except the three that were submitted within the time limit from Éire (Ireland) and Kernow (Cornwall) and an emergency motion presented at the last minute from Alba (Scotland).
The follow-up of resolutions are initially the responsibility of the Proposer, who will then instruct the General Secretary to action the resolution.
The four resolutions passed at the 2013 AGM were as follows:
Go éilíonn an Cruinniú Chinn Bliana seo bord eagarthóireachta a bhunú, chun cuidiú leis an eagarthóir i rith an aimsir idirthréimhseach go E-Carn.
That this AGM calls for an editorial board to be set up, during the transitional period to eCarn, to assist the editor.
