|*||Response by RSL Sub-branch Committee: After the EGM resolution below, the Committee sent a letter to Beaumaris RSL Sub-Branch members stating it would not lodge the caveat sought, following legal advice is obtained, and that the overwhelming majority of the Committee will resign after sending that letter, and will ask ANZAC House to appoint an interim committee or an administrator.|
The Committee sent members a later letter stating that all its members had resigned, that the RSL’s Victorian Branch had appointed the Branch’s Senior Vice-President to administer the Sub-Branch, and to determine options for the Branch’s future, and to convene a general meeting of the Sub-Branch by 14 December 2015 to consider the options determined.
The General Meeting overwhelmingly passed the motion on notice, which was,
“That based on the information provided to this meeting by Gregory Mier (member and legal practitioner), Beaumaris RSL Sub-branch Inc. and any successor thereto shall forthwith do all things necessary to remain situated at, open and operational in its current location and to defend its right to continue to do so (including by way of lodging a caveat).”
