AA clarifies voting rights

THE Automobile Association is to clarify its members' constitutional rights following concerns expressed at its annual meeting. This will involve a reassertion that every full, personal member of the AA, some 4.3 million people in total, has a voting right on key issues.

The motoring organisation is also investigating mechanisms to allow these members to vote by proxy, rather than the current mechanism which requires them to attend its annual meeting. Fleet members of the AA will not have voting rights since it is the vehicle rather than driver which is deemed to be a member.

The moves come against a background of fundamental changes at the AA's chief rival, the RAC, which is in the process of being sold to Cendant Corporation. The AA has confirmed its commitment to remain a mutual-type society.
