Proposed change to the constitution is as follows:

 

For a decision on February 18th, we propose a reduction in the quorum required for changes to our constitution, from 25% of the membership to 15%. This is recommended because as the club grows beyond its current 350 members, a quorum of more than 90 members to vote in any decision concerning constitutional change is too cumbersome and unwieldy. Updating our constitution is vital to keeping the club relevant in a rapidly evolving digital world and a smaller quorum will aid that.

 

 For clarity, the changes in wording are as follows:

 

FROM:

13.8 A quorum at any Annual General Meeting shall be as follows:-

13.8.1 For motions proposing any amendment to this Constitution 25% of those Full Members whose annual membership fees are not in arrears;

13.8.2 For all other business, 1% of those Full members whose annual membership fees are not in arrears;

 

TO:

13.8 A quorum at any Annual General Meeting shall be as follows:-

13.8.1 For motions proposing any amendment to this Constitution 15% of those Full Members whose annual membership fees are not in arrears;

13.8.2 For all other business, 1% of those Full members whose annual membership fees are not in arrears;


Nominations for Executive Committee

The Executive Committee is very busy with an ongoing and expanding list of ambitious goals. The success of these ambitions, and in fact of the club itself, is only possible through the generosity of time given by the volunteers that make up the executive committee.

 

As is the case at each AGM, the executive committee will be dissolved and new nominations accepted.

If any member wishes to nominate for the committee, please download a copy from the website here.

All nominations must be seconded by another Full Member (as long as the Full Member is not in arrears in respect of their annual membership fees.) and submitted to the Club Secretary no less than 14 days prior to the AGM (that’s February 3rd, 2020).

 Committee nominations for 2021 are as follows:

  • Jamie Scott
  • Marty Pepper
  • Taylor Martin
  • Ella Wood
  • Emma Rhys
  • Joe Godsell
  • Paul Sobolewski
  • Sandy Aspinall
  • Suriyna Sivashanker
  • Tom Ootes
  • Justin Pounsett
  • Jason Dunstone
