We are today changing our "Associate Member" membership category to "Friend of Aviemore and Glenmore Community Trust". There are no practical effects to this change, we still value your input and support just as much as before, and there has been no change to voting rights.
The reason we have to do this is due to a strange clause in our Articles of Association which limits associate membership to 25% of total membership, meaning we may have to limit numbers of supporters outside of PH22 and we don't want to do that. The Articles of Association we have come directly from the Scottish Government and guarantees we meet the criteria for community right to buy and community asset transfer. It is possible to amend our articles of association but it adds another complication to our transfer request for no real benefit.
Congratulations if you read this far! and thanks for your support.
