Bugger. We didn’t achieve quorum at the planned AGM on 22 February 2016. What does this mean? We weren’t able to conduct any of the formal business such as elections, so we now must organise an adjourned AGM. It will be held at a different venue.
Several members have asked what ‘proxy’ and ‘quorum’ mean and why they are important. Proxy means you authorise another member who will be at the meeting, to vote on your behalf, when you can’t physically be there. A proxy is only valid when the form is fully completed and submitted in advance, by the specified date and time. Quorum means the minimum number of members that need to be present either physically or by a proxy form, to enable the formal business to be legally conducted. By submitting a proxy, you are included in the quorum, thereby helping to make up the numbers we need to proceed on the night.
Only full members (over the age of 18) are entitled to vote at a general meeting.
We totally understand that members may not be able to make the meeting but please, please, please send in your proxies following the instructions provided by email and snail mail (and on the form itself) if you can’t make it. We need you or your proxy form! We know everyone is busy and it’s easy to put it on the ‘do later’ pile and then forget.
Members should have received their invite and proxy form by snail mail by now.
The Perth Rock Climbing Guide ($25), Climb Tasmania ($45, limited copies) and CAWA T-shirts ($25) will be available. Please bring exact money.
Back by popular demand, the amazing technicolour 2016 CAWA calendar will also be on sale ($15). What greater piece of artwork could adorn your walls? Even better, a great gift for your partner, friend, someone you fancy and want to impress, climbing buddy, neighbour, workmate, random stranger…anyone really.
Please note that the AGM is a member only event.
Venue: Department of Sport and Recreation, 246 Vincent St, Leederville.
(Parking tip: FREE parking at the Loftus Centre, Cnr Vincent and Loftus St or paid street parking)
Time: Arrive 6 pm to register, for 6.30 pm sharp start.
You are most welcome to bring food and drink.
Look forward to seeing you all there (again)!
