LAWS RELATING- TO THE BRANCHES.
1. The Council shall have the power to admit under the general title "Branch of the Anglo-Jewish Association" an organised body of not less than ten subscribers, residing in any part of the British dominions, who may be desirous of promoting the objects of the Association, in conformity with the rules laid down in the Constitution of the parent institution.
2. All members of Branches shall have equal rights with members of the parent Association.
3. The President of each Branch shall be, ex officio, a member of the Council.
4. Each Branch shall communicate to the parent institution the names of its President, Treasurer and Secretary; and also its bye-laws and regulations, by which the business of the Branch is to be governed.
5. Each Branch shall have the power of proposing action to the consideration of the Council, but it shall not have the power of independent action, except in its immediate neighbourhood, and there only when it may be impossible to submit the matter to the previous consideration of the Council. In case of such emergency immediate information must be given to the parent body.
6. The funds of each Branch, after payment of its expenses, shall be applied through the agency of the parent society to any one or more of the objects of the Association, in such manner as the Committee of the Branch may from time to time decide. Each Branch shall annually supply to the Council, in time for publication in its Report, a balance-sheet, together with a list of its contributors.
7. Each Branch shall be entitled to a summary of the proceedings of every meeting of the Council, and shall, during the month of April in each year, or oftener if required, furnish the Council with an account of its own transactions, and with particulars of its financial position.
8. Any Branch may be dissolved by an Extraordinary General Meeting of the members of the Association, convened by advertisement for the purpose, upon a recommendation of the Council, or in consequence of the reduction of its members to less than the minimum number, ten.
9. In the event of the dissolution of a Branch, the balance of its funds shall be handed over for the general purposes of the Association.
