***Special Notice***

On Saturday 17th June 2017 at 2 pm, Trevs will be holding a General Meeting of the Trevelyan Society. We are developing a proposal for College Council, which we believe will fully integrate the Alumni group at the centre of the College by means of a Standing Committee of College Council. We would be delighted to welcome many of you to this meeting. Please find the details for the resolutions for that meeting below. Following the meeting, there will be an opportunity to visit the new fitness suite - the first completed 50th Anniversary Project.



Take notice that at the General Meeting of the Trevelyan Society to take place on 17th June 2017 the following motions shall be put:

2.1 That the co-option of local Alumnus Christopher Wastell to the Executive as Secretary of the Trevelyan Society at the Executive Committee meeting for the Trevelyan Society held on 15th May 2017 shall be noted.

2.2 That, pursuant to Clause 8(i) of its constitution of March 1997, the Trevelyan Society shall dissolve with effect from 17th June 2017 (subject to College Council having resolved to establish the Trevelyan Alumni Committee(TAC)) prior to that date or on the date it so resolves, if later.)

2.3. That it be noted that, pursuant to Clause 8(ii) of its said constitution at its said meeting the Executive Committee resolved that the funds of the Trevelyan Society shall remain within the Trevelyan Trust to be used in accordance with the objectives of the Trevelyan Society as set out in their Constitution on March 1997, namely, to promote the academic and general wellbeing of the College and to give past students and staff opportunities of meeting or keeping in touch with one another and with the College and as more particularly determined by the Trevelyan Alumni Committee from time to time.
