DSRA Rules of the Association (draft), March 2018

This is a copy of the draft rules prepared by the working group, based on the Model Rules

Following community consultation, a settled draft of the new rules will be put to members to vote on. Community consultation will comprise the website forum, discussion at the upcoming general meeting and, if warranted, a one-off face-to-face discussion session

We realise that the draft can look a little overwhelming at first glance. To make the process less daunting, we suggest that people focus on recommended additions (coloured red) and recommended omissions (have a line through them)

Please note that constitutions are now referred to as 'Rules of the Association'
