Club Members' Rights

Where can I find out about club members’ rights (example, member getting copy of minutes)? Martin.

Hi Martin.  The answer is look at the club constitution and it should set this out in detail. 

It is not normal for ordinary members to have committee minutes available to them and this is because it would stifle discussion at the committee if people’s names under discussion were circulated to the members – that might expose the committee to legal action for defamation of character.

If you really want to get copies of the minutes, depending on what the constitution says you may be able to call an extraordinary general meeting directing the committee to publish the minutes in question.
