Given the ongoing public health restrictions, we will be holding the AGM over Zoom this year, a link will be sent out closer to the time. The draft agenda has been emailed this evening.
If you have anything to add to the agenda please drop an email to email@example.com We must have 25% of the membership in attendance to form a quorum for a General Meeting - please attend if you can. One of the constitution changes we are seeking to make is a change to the Membership year to run from Feb - Jan, with this in mind we ask that members do not lodge funds or send on membership forms for 2022 membership until after the AGM has taken place. All 2021 memberships will be deemed extended until 31st January 2022 until the motion is put before the AGM.
We are very keen to get new blood on the committee, the vast majority of those serving have been in situ for some years and many of our longstanding members have already been on the committee. It is your club too so please do step up if you are able to do so!
Being a member of the commitee is not as daunting as it might sound, we want ordinary members who can represent the overall membership and put forward their thoughts on matters that come up over the course of the year. Outwith the meetings, you can contribute as much or as little time as you like.
Meetings take place on the first Tuesday of each month (currently via Zoom) and last approximately 1 hour. We are required under the constitution to hold a minimum of 9 each year.
It is not necessary to attend every meeting, we must just have a quorum of 4 committee members for each meeting and they should avoid missing more than 3 consectutive meetings.
Regular topics include Health & Safety, maintenance, upcoming activities on and off the water, Ocean to City, Climate Change & Biodiversity, funding opportunities, communications & technology and new club site.
If you are interested in joining in 2022 please pop an email or approach one of the 2021 committee.
