Constitution (last amended 19 Nov 1998)
The Association shall be called Drummond Civic Association.

Membership: is open to all residents in Drummond Place and to others who share the Association's aims
Committee: The Association shall be represented and its affairs managed by a Committee of eight, who shall elect one of their number in rotation to act as chairman. The Committee shall appoint a Secretary and a Treasurer who shall be ex officiis members of the Committee. Each Committee member shall demit office at the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting coinciding with the end of his/her fourth term of office and shall be ineligible for re-election until the following AGM. Any vacancy arising in the membership of the Committee may be filled by the Committee's appointing a member of the Society to hold office until the next AGM.
Meetings: There shall be an AGM requiring not less than 21 days' notice. Twelve members will form a quorum.

The Treasurer will hold funds on behalf of the Association, and accounts of the Association's transactions will be made up for submission at its AGM.
In the event of the Association being wound up, funds remaining after discharge of the Association's liabilities shall be made over to an appropriate charity to be determined at the time by its members.
