We're looking to gather views on the CIC Association shares and how best to utilise them. A decision will be taken after The Regulator has announced her findings from the Dividend cap review.
Ok, to get the ball rolling I propose offering every CIC who joins a voting share, and MAYBE to invite the key stakeholders to take a share (doesnt have to be a voting share,one per org/key individual) We can also use this to distribute a proposal to attract investment from the public (i'll invest). We can use the process as a case study and open learning tool for all key audiences.
In a wider sense the focus is on CIC companies owning the association, a kinda modern mutualisation, and we can then keep the decision making to a proxy vote and annual AGM system. That frees it up to be a low budget member led organisation.
Potentially huge upsides to awareness, investment, providing active data and perspective of CICs. Have spoken to most key groups and its all pretty do-able.
Any thoughts? feel free to contact me privately
