AGM – 2nd October at 7:15 pm
As we are finally returning to running normality of sorts we are in a position to look at the year ahead, and therefore required to hold an AGM to ensure the club is run democratically, and in the best wishes of all its members. It is also a time when we need to elect / re-elect members of the committee.
Due to the limiting conditions that Covid-19 presents this will be online via Zoom and links have been sent in an email to all 2020 members. As this is going to be no easy task, may I therefore ask that you all consider the points on the agenda, and forward any other matters you would like to put forward in advance. It is also vital that we secure nominations for the committee, therefore we ask you to consider whether you have the skills and determination to take an active role in the club’s management.
Although you can put yourself forward for any of the committee positions, there are a few roles that are very much open, they are Chair, Secretary, Run Leader Coordinator, Covid-19 officer and Membership admin. Although Vikki has offered to continue as Chair if necessary, we feel that the position should not be a static role but offered to anyone with a fresh vision.
It should be noted that all positions can only be filled by those who has been a paid-up member of the club for at least 1 year.
