Constitution

The BSMB committee reviewed the constitution of the society in 2009-10, in order to reassess our aims and procedures and to make sure that we are compliant with the current requirements of the Charity Commission for England and Wales.

The proposed minor modifications to the constitution were accepted by the membership at the Spring AGM in 2010.
