To allow members to make informed decisions the Explanatory Memorandum which accompanies and forms part of this Notice of Meeting, describes in more detail those matters to be considered at the AGM including amendments to the MRBTA Constitution which seek to realign the terms of Board Directors to better manage Board succession and the retention of corporate memory.
