Special General Meeting Item

This special meeting of contractors is being called to amend the LPC Constitution to allow the Committee to delay the elections for LPC membership by one year. Currently Members Term of Office expire on 31 March 2022.

However, proposals for change about the future model of local and national contractor representation and support are likely to be put to a contractor vote within the next year. For this reason, the Committee considers that the elections should be delayed until later in the year when the new model of support has been determined by the sector. To achieve this, we propose to amend the Constitution of Community Pharmacy Cheshire & Wirral LPC (CPCW) as follows:

  • Proposal 1: To delay the LPC Elections by 12 months to 2023
    • Existing Clause – 13. Term of Office
      Subject to paragraphs 14 and 16, members of the Committee shall hold office from 1 April in the year of the election or appointment for a period of 4 years.
    •  New Clause – 13. Term of Office
      Subject to paragraphs 14 and 16, members of the Committee shall hold office from 1 April in the year of the election or appointment for a period of 4 years. [Except that the term of office starting on 1 April 2022 shall be postponed until 1 April 2023 and current LPC members shall hold office for a period of 5 years.]
  • Proposal 2: To add the following Definition to the LPC constitution
    “Meeting” means a gathering of people for the purpose of making decisions or discussing committee objectives and operations. Meetings may take place face-to-face, virtually or a hybrid of both.
