Proposed Amendments

In Fall 2018-Spring 2019 RSVP has conducted an extensive governance review with the goal of bringing its Constitution and Bylaws up to date with current practice, and to bring them in conformance with our legal  responsibilities as a private foundation.

In accordance with the existing governance documents (last updated 2006), the following amended documents are hereby presented to the RSVP membership to review in advance of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which will be held on Saturday July 27 as part of the annual conference held this year in Brighton UK.  At the AGM, members will be invited to discuss the amendments and to vote on their approval.
