Your presence at this meeting is essential to elect the incoming committee and to ensure you have the opportunity to have your say in how the club will run in 2020.
Date: Monday 20th January 2020
Location: Main Boardroom – Manhattan Hotel, Ringwood
What happens at the AGM?
The AGM is your opportunity to become directly involved in important club decisions. You will be able to vote on important club matters and you may also ask questions of the Executive Committee. A copy of the 2019 Annual Report will also be available to all members on the night.
Fee structure for the 2020 winter season will again be an important issue and the AGM is your opportunity to voice your opinion.
How do nominations for committee positions work?
Any club member can nominate another member for a role on the 2020 committee, however this does not automatically secure them the position. The nominated club member must first accept the nomination, and then the members present at the AGM must decide which of the nominated candidates are best suited for the role.
NOTE: attendance at the AGM allows you to have a say, it does not mean that you will end up on the club committee.
All positions are vacated each year and nominations are required as follows:
• Vice President
• Junior Co-ordinator
• Registrations Officer
• General Member(s)
Please forward your nominations (see form below) and/or any General Business items to Ian Davidson by mail, email or phone by 16 January 2020.
What should I do if I am unable to attend the AGM?
If you are unable to attend the Annual General Meeting, you should make your apologies to either Luke Painter or Ian Davidson.
However, we do need to have enough members attend the meeting to ensure the meeting’s legality. Therefore, it is in the best interest of the club that you attend this one-hour meeting to have your say in how the club is run and ensure 2020 gets off to the best possible start.
