CLUB AGM WEDNESDAY 8TH APRIL 2020 AT 7PM
Hello to all members, old and new (and those not so old!)
If you have read any of the many notices around the club (and I know there are a lot!) you will be aware that our club AGM is being held on Wednesday 8th April at 7pm. Please make an effort to come along, join in, get involved and see how things are done.
The Directors and Officers of the club are elected by you on this night for the benefit of all members. This is your chance to nominate the person of your choice or show your support for an existing Director/Officer. Nomination forms are available from Lynn Bramwell in the office and must be completed and returned by the 18th March. Similarly, please submit items to be discussed by this date.
So come on, don’t rest on your laurels or think “I’ll let someone else do it”, put pen to paper and come along on the night. Air your “moans and groans” or share any positive comments or suggestions you may have. This is your club and your opportunity to make a difference, so make a note of the date in your diary now.
REMEMBER – YOUR CLUB NEEDS YOU!
Dave Elliott – Chairman of Directors
You were informed last year in a letter headed "FUTURE OF THE CLUB" that a number of Directors would be stepping down and also that being an Officer of the Club does not necessarily require the holder of the position to be a Director.
As was stated, the Club is run primarily by volunteers, either as Officers or Directors, and the more of the following posts that can be filled the easier it will be to provide Members with the facilities they have come to expect. So it is hoped that many of you will "step up to the plate" and submit their nomination(s) by 18th March.
Unless this happens the Board of Directors could be left with only 3 members due to other commitments or ill-health of the 5 current Directors who are stepping down. For the Board to function well the ideal number of Directors is 9 or a higher odd number. The odd number is to allow the Chairman (Elected by the Board Members) to have a casting vote. The Board Members can also designate a Director to be responsible for Finance and Financial Planning needed to ensure the long term future of the Club.
