MEMBERS

If your or your organisation would like to have an active say in how Fullabrook Wind Farm CIC manages the funds, why not join us as a Member, which will give you voting rights at our AGM.

Why do we need members?

As a Community Interest Company, Fullabrook Wind Farm CIC has been established for people who want to be involved in an organisation that benefit the community, rather than just owners, managers or employees – this is known as a social enterprise.  

As a CIC we must:

  • Meet the Community Interest Test.
  • File an annual CIC report with our accounts.
  • Keep the community in touch with our activities.
  • Only use our assets and profits for the community specified, or pass them to another body with similar features.  This is known as the asset lock.
  • Be registered at Companies House in the same way as a normal company with the same incorporation documents, but supplemented by a Community Interest Statement.

Why not join us?

We are therefore seeking Community organisations,individuals and juniors to become members of the Company.   As a member, you will be able to:

  • Attend and vote at general meetings.
  • Receive a copy of the CIC’s annual accounts.
  • Elect the Directors by voting at the AGM.
  • Approve the governance regulations proposed by the Directors, including the procedures governing applications and approval of grants from the community fund.
  • Vote on any fundamental changes to the nature of the CIC, its name, its purposes, its policies or what happens to its surplus income.  

As a member you will not:

  • Become liable for any debts of the CIC, nor will you become liable if someone brings a legal case against the CIC.
  • If the CIC were to be wound up (if for example it cannot it cannot pay its debts) you wold have to pay only £1 to the CIC.  
  • Be able to influence the selection of recipients of any grants made.
  • Be entitled to receive any diffident or other income from the CIC.  If the CIC has surplus funds these will be retained to pay for the CIC’s activities in following years.
