It looks like the CIC triggers have been met and this will now proceed. The next step would be to ratify the constitution which would be decided by the members so why don't we debate some ideas regarding the constitution, membership prices and safeguards. Any guidance from 10000 hours on the type of things in the constituion would also be helpful.
Membership fees - If, as looks probable, the membership is over subscribed should the membership fees be reduced ? My feelings on thi sis the initial membership fees should be fixed for at least 2 years in order to reduce the funding as quickly as possible and after the original 2 years they would then be reviewed.
CIC Board - Should there be a maximum term that a member of the board can serve before having to step down and wait a period of time before being re-elected ? I think in order to keep things fresh there should be a maximum of 6 years service on the board and then a period of 1 year before they can seek re-election.
Concessionary memberships - Should there be concessionary memberships for unemployed/pensioners/students etc ?
Honorary memberships - Should there be honorary memberships for people who have significantly contributed to the CIC or club ? Should honorary members have the same rights as full members ? For instance Hugh Murray has been a great servant to the club, when he retires from playing should he be given an honorary membership ? There are probably many others players/fans etc that should be considered for one reason or another, what would be the criteria for honary membership ?
Childrens/Juvenile memberships - Should children's membership allow either free or reduced prices for the panda club ? What sort of incentives for juveniles ? At what age should juvenile membership cease 15 ? 18 ?
