Proposed Changes to D&AD's Articles of Association

D&AD is holding a General Meeting at 64 Cheshire Street, London, E2 6EH on 2nd August 2017 at 6.15pm at which its members will be asked to consider and vote on a special resolution to adopt new articles of association (New Articles).

The Board of Trustees is recommending that the New Articles are adopted to bring D&AD’s constitution up to date, to ensure that D&AD is better placed to meet the challenges of the future, and to introduce a leaner and more effective decision-making process for the management of D&AD.

The proposed New Articles make several important changes to D&AD’s constitution, including:

Copies of the proposed New Articles and Governance Policy are available below, and shall also be available for inspection at D&AD’s registered office during normal business hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays), until the close of the General Meeting on 2nd August 2017.

A copy of the Notice of General Meeting is also available below.

  • Changes to the overall composition of the Board of Trustees and how individual Trustees are appointed – replacing the current ballot process with a recruitment and appointment process overseen by the Trustees, and supported by a new Appointment Committee.
  • Changes to how the members of D&AD are defined under the constitution – while D&AD’s day-to-day relationship with its subscriber members will not be changing, under the New Articles the D&AD Trustees will become the sole members of D&AD for the purposes of decision-making under the constitution. This change is being made to allow D&AD to make decisions more expediently and the Trustees more accountable for the outcomes of the organisation.
  • The introduction of a new D&AD Governance Policy – providing a transparent set of rules which set out how the governance of D&AD works, as well as the roles, responsibilities and operating process of various bodies and people within its structure.
