On the 26th January, the constitutional sub committee met in Sheffield to discuss the logistics of the revised by-laws. It is necessary to make these revisions to bring them in line with the new constitution and the NPC's recently acquired charitable status. The main by-laws that were covered include those referring to: affiliation fee and protocol, the rules on membership admissions, voting regulations and officer remits. Also covered were meeting regulations and any disciplinary procedures that may be necessary should any problems arise. The by-laws will ensure the continued fair and democratic structure of NPC that will meet the interests of all its members. Ratification of these will occur at NPC OGMs.
