Vice-Presidents and Patrons of the Society (whether individuals or groups) shall have one vote which may be applied to each issue balloted at an AGM or EGM.
The business of an EGM shall be to consider only specific emergency items and to implement such action as may need to be taken in the emergency arising.

The Executive Committee of the Society shall offer for information an annual report on its activities to the Principal of The College.

Any recommendation to amend which is so made will be submitted to a panel of three members of the Corporation for their consideration and whilst that panel appointed a Board of the Corporation for that purpose has power to reject the recommendation, their approval of the AGM recommendations will not be unreasonably withheld.
