A member entitled to attend and vote is entitled to appoint a proxy to attend, speak and vote in his stead.  A Proxy need not be a Member of the company.

Below are links to the current Memorandum and Articles of Association, the new Constitution and the Proxy form.

The Companies Act 2014 made a number of changes to Company law which impact on the form of the constitutional documents of all companies. Where existing companies limited by guarantee, such as IVARO, are concerned, the Act requires that the company change its name to substitute for the existing suffix “Limited” or “Ltd” the new suffix “Company Limited by Guarantee” or “CLG”.

One of the other governance changes dictated by the Companies Act is to convert existing Memorandum and Articles of Association into a Constitution compliant with the Act. The constitution put forward for adoption by the membership of IVARO accord with the form set out in the Act. We have made the existing Memorandum of Association and the new-form Constitution available on the website below to allow members to compare the documents in advance of the AGM.
