After obtaining legal advice the decision to hold a Central Council meeting scheduled for the 13th May 2020 has been reviewed. The meeting is now cancelled. The resolution of the Management Committee, made on 7th April, that a 90% discount on the usually applicable subscriptions listed in the Guild rule book will be payable for the 2020 subscription year, to be paid by 30 September 2020, stands.
Payment on these terms will be deemed to be payment in full for the 2020 year for the purposes of all of the rules of the Guild excluding Rule 8a2a. All preservation of rights applications will be free of charge for fairs cancelled due to the present crisis. This resolution will be ratified at the next available Central Council meeting which will be convened when circumstances permit.
