                          Notices of Motion for the Annual General Meeting of the VPFA Ltd 2021

That the number of signatories required to sign on the VPFA cheque accounts be reduced from the current any three of the four authorized account signatories to any two of the four authorized signatories.

44.2.1  Cheques paid from the General Working Account must have 3 signatures, one of whom must be the Treasurer and the other two of whom must be directors.
