CW General Meeting – Homerton College, Cambridge

Venue :  Paston Brown Room, Homerton College, Hills Rd, Cambridge CB2 8PH
Start date/time :  17:00 15th December 2016
End date/time :  17:45 15th December 2016

CW is having a General Meeting to put forward proposed changes to the Articles of Association to the Founder Members and will be conducting a vote to this effect. It will also provide an opportunity for the members present to hear from the Board and CEO on the progress of the company.

The CW Board is the forum that sets and reviews the strategy of CW – so it’s important that the Directors include a wide diversity of knowledge, experience and opinion. The current CW Board has therefore decided to ask the membership to increase the number of Directors by three (from 9 Directors to 12).


This entails an alteration to the Articles of Association. As CW is legally owned by its Founder members, altering the Articles of Association means that it is necessary for the Founder members to agree to these changes.

If you have any queries about the General Meeting or changes to the Articles of Association, please contact

Please note all members are welcome to attend the meeting, but only Founder Members will be eligible to vote.

Details of the proposed changes are below:
