The relevant section of the FRA Constitution, is Article 47:- Subject to the Articles, the Executive Committee members may regulate their proceedings as they think fit. Meetings of the Executive Committee shall be held not less than four times each calendar year. Members may attend meetings of the Executive Committee as observers and may speak at such meetings but may not vote. If any business at a meeting of the Executive Committee is deemed confidential, then any Member attending as an observer will be required to leave the meeting whilst such matter is discussed.
What This Means Any of the 7500 members of the FRA may attend a meeting of the Executive Committee to observe, subject to the "confidential" proviso. Such observers are also free to speak but not vote. Normal committee rules are observed, namely that speakers, whether Committee members or observers, should address the meeting via the Chair, and should restrict what they say to the agenda item under discussion.
Attendance Committee members are expected to confirm their attendance in advance of each meeting. For reasons of practicality, any member who wishes to observe should make their request to the Secretary one week before any Executive Meeting. It may be necessary to restrict the numbers of observers if space is limited.
Committee Minutes /Papers Briefing papers supporting agenda items are issued to Executive Members one week before each meeting. These are normally restricted to the Committee. Meeting Minutes are not circulated to the membership, however, in the interests of transparency, established practice is for the Secretary to produce a report for each Fellrunner to keep all members informed of business conducted by the Executive on their behalf.
