The proposals come from a 124-strong group of members, led by former ACCA Council member Anthony Thomas, who lost his Council seat in the 1996 elections.
In a statement, ACCA expressed regret at the unnecessary cost of the EGM - estimated at £80,000. This is the third EGM in four years, called by broadly the same group of members to discuss broadly the same concerns. On each previous occasion, the membership has supported Council by overwhelming margins, the statement added.
It also said: 'Anthony Thomas delivered his requisition on 18 November, three weeks after informing ACCA of his intentions. During that time, the President asked him repeatedly to set out his concerns in writing as the basis for a meeting. It is a great pity that he was unwilling to do so - as a meeting could have allayed his concerns, which he never voiced during 12 years on Council.'
