Taking account of feedback from the NISA Membership and the EGM Focus Group, amendments have been included in Article 38 to allow:

• individuals of 16 years of age who become Full Annual Members to exercise a vote in their own right; and
• the authorised parent or guardian of individuals below 16 years of age, who become Full Annual Members, to exercise a vote on the individual’s behalf.

If the amended Articles are passed at the EGM on 2 December 2017, then any existing Associate Members who apply and are accepted to become Full Annual Members, and who have been in membership of NISA for a total of at least 13 months by the date of the 2018 AGM, will be able to exercise their vote at the 2018 NISA AGM and thereafter.
