Constitution

Constitution  (If you click this link, the constitution will be displayed).

This constitution was adopted at the 2017 Annual General Meeting when the Cyclamen Society adopted a new charity structure called a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), which affords the trustees a greater degree of personal protection from litigation. It is very much in the interests of a charity to afford its trustees some protection, particularly from what is known as ‘vexatious’ litigation, because, if there are no trustees, there is no charity! This also enables future development of the constitution, when required, without complete replacement.
