It was always my understanding that the Wing Committee were elected at the annual Wing AGM with Squadron Civcom. reps being present.
As there is no Wing Association, such individuals on the Wing Civcom, are then elected from within the membership of the Squadron Associations represented at the AGM; the Wing Committee of course essentially to acts as Trustees of the Wing fund, which incidentally generally derives its’ finance from Squadron ‘donations’.
That position has been tenable for years , but reading ACP11 things do not add up!
Specifically a reference to disciplinary action and the Wing Chair being able to refer matters to the Regional Chair who can act to suspend a member of a Squadron Committee. There is no reference to acting in the interests of the charity.
With Charity management, it is the Trustees of a Charity who are themselves supposed to manage their own affairs, without outside interference. It is then difficult to see how an elected person can take action against those individuals who were responsible for electing him/her in the first place.
More so how does it work, where the Wing Chair might have a place on the Squadron Committee, but he/she cannot possibly hold a majority or casting vote.
Anyone able to clarify that?
