Governance and Financial Statements
Dorset Chamber has a clear governance framework which includes:
– A memorandum of Association
– Articles of Association
Our ongoing compliance with the requirements set out in our governance framework are reviewed by the British Chambers of Commerce as part of our accreditation process as well as being the subject of periodic review by the Honorary Solicitor who is an office bearer on the Board of Directors.
Dorset Chamber and of Commerce and Industry is a company limited by guarantee and not having share capital under the 1985 Companies Act, Company Registration No: 00503870.
Description of the role of elected Ambassadors
As part of our commitment to good governance, our Articles allow for some of the present officers to stand-down at the AGM (although they are eligible for re-election where applicable).
We have received a greater number of nominations than we have spaces so will need to go out to a vote by our members. This will take place over the next couple of weeks and we will notify nominees of the outcome in advance of the 25th March when we hold our Annual General Meeting.
