Management Structure

Since becoming a Company Limited by Guarantee, the Governance of Stretton Focus Ltd. has been exercised through a Board of Directors, who set editorial and financial policy, monitor performance against those policies and provide advice and guidance to the Chairman and, through him, to the officers. Directors are appointed for a period of three years but thereafter they may offer themselves for re-election by the members of the company at an annual general meeting.

The procedure for the election of the directors of the company is set out in the Memorandum and Articles of the company but these also give the board of directors the power to make subsidiary rules to make the running of the company easier, more efficient and to reflect usage and practice.  Under the currently agreed rules of the company, the directors ask the membership to appoint a director nominated by the Church Stretton Town Council and a director nominated by Church Stretton's Churches Together.

Anyone who is a resident of the Strettons, or with an interest in the Strettons, may apply to become a member, and thus be eligible to vote at  general meetings of the company. Membership application forms may be obtained from the Secretary.  The membership of any member failing to attend, either in person or by means of a properly appointed proxy, two consecutive annual general meetings and who fails to present their apologies for non attendance automatically ceases to be a member.The Management Committee, formed of the officers of Focus are responsible for the monthly production of the magazine, in accordance with company policy. They are formally appointed by the Chairman.
