National League distribute resolutions to decide the outcome of the season

National League clubs have 28 days to vote on four resolutions to decide whether Steps 1, or 2, or both, complete the season

The National League has distributed resolutions to clubs to consider the outcome of the 2020-21 season.

The resolutions are formed of four parts: one Special Resolution and three Ordinary Resolutions based on the outcome of the first.

A Special Resolution requires a 75% majority to be passed, whereas an Ordinary Resolution requires a more than 50% majority.

Votes for Resolution 1 and 4 will be counted under prescribed voting conditions, while Resolution 2 and 3 will be counted with one vote per member club.

Should Resolution 1 pass, Resolution 2 and 3 will be counted, with Resolution 4 disregarded. Should Resolution 1 be voted against, Resolution 4 will be counted, with Resolution 2 and 3 votes disregarded.

Under The National League’s Articles of Association, Member Clubs have 28 days to return voting submissions.
