Resolution: LTRC voting

This resolution, submitted by LU Engineering branch, was remitted following discussion at the Regional Council AGM. It will be reconsidered and discussed further at a future meeting.

That this branch submits an amendment to the Regional Council Standing Orders Voting System. This branch believes that a system should be used that is proportional to the size of the Branch instead of one vote per branch. The system we propose would give each branch a minumum of 1 vote. Additional votes are given for every 500 members above a benchmark of 500 (as per that years statement of membership) ie a branch with 1000 members would have two votes, a branch with 1500, 3 etc. These votes would by additonal cards retained by the Regional Secretary.
