Catalyst Arts Governing Document Alterations

Catalyst Arts is currently in the process of amending its governing document, which has been developed and legally drafted in consultation with NICVA. In keeping with due process for the adoption of new Objects and Articles to our constitutionArticles of Association, Catalyst Arts will present the new draft of its proposed constitution to the members for adoption by special resolution. If successfully passed we will then be submitting this to Companies House for register.

Please click here to read over proposed Special Resolution, which covers the amendments and alterations to the governing document we intend to submit for register.

With reference to our original articles of association, the amendments outlined below have been drafted in accordance with new regulations for companies with charitable status to reflect best practice in our sector and safeguard against vulnerability of the organisation’s operations, finances and policies. The following objects and articles have been highlighted for special resolution, as they were never clearly defined in the original governing document and focus on the company’s objects, powers, quorum for meeting proceedings and appointment of directors.

For your consideration please click on the following links to see our original governing document 1993-2014 and final draft for new Articles of Association 2014.
