Why reconvene? Under our Rules (section 23), we cannot conduct a meeting unless there is a quorom of
25 voting members. 15 members [rule changed at AGM July 2017] The rules say the meeting can be reconvened a week later and the quorum will be the members present. Here is the relevant section:
PROCEEDINGS AT GENERAL MEETING
23. (a) No business shall be transacted at any general meeting of the Co-operative unless a quorum of voting members is present at the time the meeting proceeds to business. Fifteen voting members shall form a quorum.
(b) If no quorum is present within half an hour of the time appointed for the meeting, the meeting, if convened on a requisition of the members shall be dissolved, but in any other case shall stand adjourned to the same day in the next week at the same time. If at the adjourned meeting a quorum is not present within half an hour of the time appointed for the meeting, the members present shall be a quorum.
