BFSS Name Change SGM

Vote on proposal to change our name to Educational Opportunity Foundation

Members are invited to vote on a special resolution to change our name to Educational Opportunity Foundation.

The Privy Council Office has given informal approval for us to change the BFSS name to:

Educational Opportunity Foundation

However before we request the Privy Council to formally approve the name change, we would like to ensure we have the support of the BFSS Membership. We are therefore inviting all Members to a Special General Meeting (SGM) where the name change will be put to a formal vote.

The meeting is for Members only and will be held online via Zoom, at 10.30am on 7 November 2023. Everyone who is a BFSS Member (as of 19 September 2023) will receive an invitation by email with details of how to register to attend the meeting or submit a proxy vote in their absence. Registration and proxy voting will close on 31 October 2023.

Members may propose resolutions to the meeting, and these must be emailed to the Secretary to Council via director@bfss.org.uk by Tuesday 10 October 2023 at the latest.  Any resolution must be seconded by no less than five existing Members in addition to the proposer and include a supporting explanation of the rational for the proposal in no more than 200 words.
