By-Law Ammendments Voted In and Ratified

Following the Special General Meeting (19 May 2014) convened for the purpose of considering a proposal to amend the By-laws of the Architectural Association and in accordance with the existing By-laws, a vote of the subscribing membership was taken on the proposed amendments by postal/electronic ballot following the SGM.

The period of voting opened at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, 22 May 2014 and closed at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, 31 May 2014. Turnout for the vote was 8.9% of eligible members.


“Yes” – in favour of the amendments as proposed 84.1%

“No” – opposed to the amendments as proposed 3.3%

“Abstain” – vote withheld 12.6%

Total number of voting codes issued: 2,749

Turnout: 8.9% 


INTERNET  220 votes  (89.4%) 

POSTAL    22 votes    (8.9%)

INPERSON 4 votes     (1.6%)


STAFF 47 of 217 codes issued - 21.6% of total votes, 19.1% turnout

MEMBERS 154 of 1,905  codes issued - 8.1% of total votes, 62.6% turnout 

In accordance with the By-laws in place at the time of voting, any proposed amendment to the By-laws must be carried by the votes of at least two-thirds (66.6%) of the members voting. The result of 84.1% of the members voting in favour of the proposed amendments thus confirms that the amendments as proposed are RATIFIED and are now in effect.

The Scrutineers appointed for receiving the ballots were Mi-Voice Electoral Services. 

Should you have any questions or comments regarding the ballot and procedures resulting in amendments to the By-laws, do contact the Office of the Company Secretary.
