Unfortunately the articles of association does not mention anything about accepting or refusing a membership. under the clause Termination of membership , All it says is that if a member resigns,with a written notice to the charity unless, after the resignation, there would be less than two members.
It also says, The membership is terminated, if the member is removed from membership by a resolution of the directors that it is in the best interest of the charity that his or her membership is terminated.
According to the Articles of association,the subscribers to the memorandum are the first members of the charity.
We argue that as the company was using CIO Model of the charity law, whereby all the board members when become a trustees/ Directors of the company, they relinquish the subscribers status but become the board members. Are we right quoting this point, Please advise in detail and not just in one line please....
This is the question I want to give me. I have given you an account of the facts, have told you why they had to resign and also I have told you by becoming the board members I think they relinquished the subcribers members status as they became board members/ Directors/ Trustees. Once they resigned as board members , they savered all their links to the charity I think, My question from you is that is it correct what I am saying about the status of the ex trustees/ Board Members / Directors?Please remember the charitatble company is a non profit making organization.
