    10b) The Camps Working Group may co-opt any member of Rainbow Circle onto the Camps Working Group, after the AGM, provided that the number of co-options does not exceed one third of the group.

    10c) The activities of Rainbow Circle shall be managed by members of the Camps Working Group who may authorise payment of all expenses incurred in running Rainbow Circle and may exercise all necessary powers.
    The Camps Working Group shall ensure the proper running and co-ordination of all aspects of Rainbow Circle camps and other associated activities.

    10d) The Camps Working Group shall ensure minutes are taken of the names of members present, and of all resolutions and proceedings at each General Meeting and meetings of the Camps Working Group, any of its sub groups and Council.
    The Camps Working Group shall meet regularly, with adequate notice given, in order to manage Rainbow Circle’s activities throughout the season and up to the next AGM.

    10e) The quorum necessary for the transaction of business of the Camps Working Group shall be one third of its members or 7, whichever is the least, when meeting off site, and three quarters of its members who are on site when meeting at a camp.
    Every member is entitled to one vote on each proposal.
    A proposal put to the vote shall be decided by a show of hands.
    The meeting shall try to obtain a consensus of agreement on any matter under discussion.
    Failing this, a proposal shall be passed when two thirds or more of members present are in favour.
    If the proposal is not passed, further proceedings on the proposal can take place at that or the next appropriate meeting.
    The majority needed for a WWG proposal to pass is two thirds of those at the meeting.
    Abstentions are included with the votes against the motion in calculating the 2/3.

    10f) Any sub group appointed by the Camps Working Group shall follow the guidelines given by the Camps Working Group and shall follow the same guidelines for running meetings where applicable.

    10g) In exceptional circumstances the WWG may make decisions without a physical meeting: by email, phone and letter.
    If they fail to reach consensus then a proposal shall be passed when two thirds or more of all the members are in favour

    6biv) In cases of serious misconduct, the Council or Camps Working Group, or all of a camp's coordinators (for just their one camp), have the right to tell a person to leave the site or premises used by Rainbow Circle immediately. Serious misconduct can include violence, sexual abuse, harassment or drug dealing. This list is not exhaustive. The Council shall review action it has taken retrospectively and, if appropriate, amend their decision if further information comes to light.

    14. October 2014 amendments to abstentions and quorates
    14a) Abstentions are not counted as votes in favour or against.
    14b) Meetings in person must have at least 5 votes in favour and decisions on the internet need at least 10 votes in favour to be passed. (The 2/3rds voting rules regarding quorate and also the need for other meetings to try and gain consensus still applies.) These new clauses over ride clauses in the constitution at section 10e and 11c.
