Important information about the clubs future restructuring and some FAQ’s

Structure of Bedford Rowing Club changing to Limited company's.

The Committee is proposing that the Rowing Club and the Social Club should be restructured. Each has been an unincorporated association since its foundation, meaning that the Officers, Committee and members of each Club are responsible for its liabilities. It is proposed that for the future, each Club should operate as a limited company which will offer much better protection against personal liability. Hopefully, it may also reduce the likelihood of difficulty in recruiting individuals willing to participate in the Clubs’ management. Members’ experience of rowing, training and the Clubs’ social activities are not expected to be adversely affected at all.

The proposal has already been outlined in previous updates to members, while the Committee has been developing the details. These are now ready to be put before members at the AGM in September. Click [here] for some Frequently Asked Questions that explain the proposals more fully. It is hoped that members will fully support this important development but if you have any questions or concerns, they should be raised by Friday 21 August. The FAQs explain how, and where to obtain copies of the principal draft documents needed to implement the proposal if you would like to read them.
