Notice to All Members
In accordance with the club’s constitution you are warmly invited to attend the Annual General Meeting to be held from 6:30pm on Saturday 4th February 2017. All are welcome but please note that only club members can vote on motions and resolutions. Family memberships entitle members to one vote per family.
Any motions to be raised at the AGM should be made to myself in writing (email will be acceptable) by Thursday 2nd February 2017 at the latest.
The AGM includes the process of dissolution of the current committee and creation of a new one for the coming year. It also includes voting for a new Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary.
The following must be true of anyone who wishes to stand:
Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary – Club member for a minimum of 2 years
In addition the Treasurer must have served on the committee for a minimum of 1 year
Committee Members – Club member and over 17 years of age
The committee consists of the following roles:
- Vice Chairman
- Safety Officer
- Protection Officer
- Training Lead
- Events Lead
- Facilities and Equipment Lead
- Membership Lead
- Communications Lead
Job descriptions can be seen on the committee page. The Club Constitution can be seen on the Policies Page.
If you are interested in any of these roles please read the job descriptions or talk to one of the committee. In addition we will be looking for others to join sub-committees to help committee members to organise events and training, communications and help with equipment and facilities.
By taking this approach we hope more people feel that they can get involved in the running the club, as we are aware that not everyone can help out all of the time much as they would like to. We believe this approach helps to make the club more inclusive and hopefully develop even more the friendly environment we already have. The club cannot be run by the Committee alone, so we need your help.
Agendas and Minutes of committee meetings are available by emailing Ed.
Thank you for continuing to support your club and the Committee look forward to welcoming you on 4th February.
