6. Proposed Resolutions:
i) Proposal to amend section 5b of the Constitution as per below to include minimum voting age. Proposed by Karina Campbell, Seconded by Ross Harris
Any fully paid up members of the Union, aged at least 16 years old, shall be entitled to a single vote. If there is an equality of votes the person who is chairing the general meeting shall have a casting vote in addition to any other vote he or she may have.
As part of the motion, the proposer requests for this amendment to take effect immediately after the vote.
ii) Proposal to amend the wording in sections 17k&l of the Constitution into one as per last year’s motion to the below. Proposed by Karina Campbell, Seconded by Ross Harris
Details of the Executive Board Meeting will be notified on the UCU website minimum 7 days in advance or as soon as an emergency meeting is called. All meetings are open to observers, but they will be asked to leave when confidential matters are discussed. Those wishing to attend and/or apply for speaking rights should do so 5 days in advance declaring specific items they wish to raise. These requests will be considered and approved by the Chair whose decision is final.
iii) A proposal for clarification regarding minimum time limit for UCU Standard Rated games. Proposed by Robert Lavery, Seconded by Karina Campbell
Games included for rating purposes in the UCU Standard Rating List are those for which the time limit is greater than or equal to 90 minutes for each player for the entire game, or an increment-based equivalent. “Increment-based equivalent” is defined as the initial time plus 60 minutes times the increment: therefore, a time control of all moves in 90 minutes plus 30 seconds per move would be counted as 120 minutes. Games of shorter duration, but no less than 60 minutes for each player (or an increment-based equivalent), may be included at the discretion of the Ratings Officer.
iv) Proposed by Neil Gardner, Seconded by Karina Campbell
The UCU will develop and maintain a database of players who may be older, inactive, isolated, etc., and undertake to contact them on a regular basis to invite them to attend events and enquire about their wellbeing. This list will be maintained by the Executive Board and contact will be carried out on a rotational basis.
Any member of the UCU can volunteer; the Executive Board will provide a rota in which members of the board will be included.
v) Propose by Damien Lavery, Seconded by Michael Sheerin
A member of the UCU who resigns their UCU membership will not be allowed to rejoin the UCU for a period of three years.
vi) Proposed by Damien Lavery, Seconded by Michael Sheerin
A member of the UCU Executive Board who resigns from the board before the next AGM will only be allowed to rejoin the Executive Board via a successful nomination and vote and the next AGM.
vii) Proposed by Damien Lavery, Seconded by Damien Cunningham
Dina Belenkaya is to be removed from the UCU rating list.
viii) Proposed by Damien Lavery, Seconded by Damien Cunningham
Dina Belenkaya is to be removed as an honorary member of the UCU.
ix) Proposed by Michael Sheerin, Seconded by Damien Lavery
The Code of Conduct Policy should be amended to include all disputes raised by members relating to chess activities under the authority of the UCU and will not be expressly limited to over-the-board disputes. The actions of any player/official which are seen to bring the Union into disrepute can be subject to scrutiny and, if found guilty of wrongdoing, appropriate sanctioning.
7. Election of Board Members
Under the constitution, the Executive Board must be composed of at least 5 members including the officers. UCU Nominations Received:
