Do you have an interest in the work of BCHA? Then you might want to consider applying to be a BCHA Shareholding Member.
What is a Shareholding Member?
Shareholding members are officially “guardians” of the objects (or the charitable purpose) of BCHA and are individuals with an interest in:
Community, Charitable and Voluntary work
Health, Housing/Homelessness and Social Care
Supporting the mission and vision of BCHA
Members pay a nominal value of £1 to buy a share. This money paid for a share becomes the property of the association. Shares carry no interest, dividend or bonus, and are non-withdrawable. No shareholder can hold more than one share, and each share carries one vote.
What do Shareholding Members do?
A shareholder has a number of rights, including:
Attending and voting at the Annual General Meeting, including calling for a ballot
Receiving the Annual Report, containing the annual accounts, the auditor’s report and the Board report
Electing, or re-electing, the Board
Carrying out business at Special General Meetings as needed
When exercising their rights, Shareholders shall act at all times in the interests of BCHA and for the benefit of the community.
