Dismemberment of people who haven't paid recently is a lot easier than for other reasons. I think it is clause 22 (sorry, don't have the articles on my phone to check) that pretty much says if you're 3 months behind and have had a reminder the board can terminate membership, so we don't actually need a general meeting for it. 

IANAL etc.
