Proxy Voting for the AGM 5th April 2020
As you might expect, it is the intent of the SOCTFL Board that the conduct of the AGM shall comply with the Companies Act 2006 and the SOCTFL Memorandum and Articles of Association Clauses 13 to 23 re Proceedings at General Meetings.
The traditional means of voting on a resolution at the SOCTFL AGM is a show of hands by members present. This is a pragmatic approach for an organisation of our size, but to comply with Section 325 of the Companies Act “Notice of meeting to contain statement of rights” we are also required to draw your attention to Section 324:“A member of a company is entitled to appoint another person as his proxy to exercise all or any of his rights to attend and to speak and vote at a meeting of the company”.
If you would like to exercise your right to appoint a proxy please complete the form below and send it to Paul Smith, SOCTFL Chairman, c/o Pestforce, 27a, Market Place, Broadgates, Henley-on-Thames, RG9 2AA to arrive ASAP before the meeting or email details to soctfl@stag.org.uk
You must provide your name(s), address and SOC Membership Number(s)

This is the form, it is also in the magazine, please print it and send it to Paul Smith

 ‘SOCTFL’ was established by the Stag Owners Club in the early ’90s for the purpose of encouraging re manufacture of high quality body panels and other parts for the Triumph Stag that are no longer available from original sources. This introduction explains how this is achieved, and how you can benefit. 

The number of Triumph Stags still ‘on the road’ is estimated at 6,500 in the UK and possibly a further 2,000 world-wide, so in terms of automotive manufacturing the production volumes for our projects are low and not commercially viable. However, SOCTFL is able to make limited grants and loans to manufacturers to subsidise tooling and production, and has established a distribution network in co-operation with the specialist suppliers. 

By this means we have been able to encourage manufacture and distribution in low volumes in order to offer Club members these high quality panels and parts at affordable prices. The basis under which this is achieved is agreed between SOCTFL and the National Committee of the Stag Owners Club. Some examples of products supported by SOCTFL are reinforced water hoses, water pump shafts, and body panels such as door skins, wheel arch panels, and rain channels. 

A current list is published each month in the SOC Magazine along with details of suppliers who normally carry stock. As with the Stag Owners Club itself, SOCTFL is run by volunteers on a part time basis. SOCTFL currently has a strong and well-qualified management team, but new volunteers are always welcome. Experience in automotive engineering, commercial management, or project management is particularly useful but is not a pre-requisite. Enthusiasm and an interest in the cars are the essential factors!


Door Handle Bowls

Following the sell out of the first batch of door handle bowls, the tooling fund has now received an estimate for the delivery of the next batch.

We estimate that these will be dispatched to us at the end of January 2020

Hopefully they will be back on sale very soon after.
