The Annual General Meeting of the Professional Cross Country Club will be held on Tuesday December 9 at the Ulverstone Surf Club rooms at 7 pm.
You can download the 2013 Minutes here while there’ll also be some copies circulated at the meeting.
AGMs are an important opportunity in any club to allow members to have their say in the running of the organisation. Through voting for committee members, club members determine who represents us and makes decisions that will have a bearing on our club for the upcoming season. It’s also an ideal chance to voice your opinion concerning a club matter. Registration and race fees are also set at the AGM.
Points raised from the floor in general business are referred to the new 2015 committee for consideration. However, if you have an issue you feel strongly about, you can have it itemised on the AGM agenda which ensures it will be forwarded as a motion for those present to vote on. The agenda is published in the local newspaper on Saturday November 22 so any items to be included should be emailed to me by Thursday November 20.
If you really feel strongly about the direction the club is heading or feel you have something to offer feel free to nominate for a committee position. All office bearers (President, two Vice Presidents, Secretary, Treasurer, Handicapper and Publicity Officer) as well as three ‘ordinary’ committee positions are open for nominations. You can download a committee nomination form here.
If we have more than one candidate for a vacancy, those present at the AGM will vote. If only one candidate nominates for a position then that candidate is considered successful. If no candidates nominate for a position then nominations are invited from the floor.
If you are not attending but would like an apology recorded, please advise me by Monday December 8.
