Life Membership of ACAT

At the ACAT Annual General Meeting in 2013 the following resolution was passed determining the award of Life Membership of ACAT:

“Without prejudice to the generality of Article 3(1), the Directors may, in their absolute discretion, award Life Membership to any person who has in the opinion of the Directors made an exceptional contribution to the work of the Charity or the promotion of its objects.   Life Members are entitled to receive notice of, attend and vote at general meetings of the Charity and to vote on members' resolutions in writing.  Subject thereto, the rights, privileges and obligations attaching to Life Membership shall be determined by the Directors and recorded in the register of members."
