AD:uk Company Registration

As briefly referred to at our AGM in Blackpool, as well as in the Chair’s notes above, the last strand of our organisational development is to register Arts Development UK as a Charitable Company Limited by Guarantee. The association already has charitable status and we see this as the final structural change in marking the move to a full professional association. Company registration would also give us a legal identity.

 Our existing trust deed is modelled on the Articles and Memorandum of Association, which has already been approved by the Charity Commission and Trustees propose to use this to register AD:uk as a company limited by guarantee. This move has now been formally recommended by our Board of Trustees at the last meeting on 10th November 2011 and is now subject to member approval.

 We would therefore like to give formal notice of this proposed change in organisational status, and would like to invite members to register any issues with us, prior to bringing the recommendation to an EGM on 16th December, to take place at 4.00pm after our next National Committee Meeting at Arts Council England, 14 Great Peter St, London.
