At the Annual General Meeting of the Contemporary Aristotelian Studies specialist group, held on 3rd June 2011, two amendments to the constitution were proposed by the existing officers and voted on by members.  The first was that another officer position should be created of Webmaster in addition to the existing three officers of Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. The second was that members should be able to call an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) if two thirds or more of the membership thought that an extra meeting was required in addition to the AGM.
