HPCLT's Articles of Association were written in 2002. Much has changed since then, including much Company and Charity Law. The opportunity has therefore been taken to update the Trust's Articles. The updated document can be viewed and downloaded here.
The philosophy of the Trust, as shown in its Charitable Purposes, has not changed although the wording is a little different. Account has been taken of changes to legislation. Membership categories have been simplified, as have Trustee retiral requirements.
Greater use of electronic means of communication will be permitted.
OSCR (Office of Scottish Charity Regulator) has approved the draft changes, as have the Trustees.
At an EGM held immediately prior to the 2018 AGM at 2.00pm on 24th March 2018 at Kynachan Hall, Tummel Bridge, the Members present, and proxies, voted in favour of a Special Resolution to adopt the Draft Articles of Association presented. In consequence, The revised Articles of Association came into effect immediately.
