On Wednesday 16 February 2011 we were supposed to conduct our AGM. Even though the turnout was good in comparison to previous years, we did not have enough numbers to conduct business at the meeting. This is because we have successfully increased membership numbers and therefore require a larger number of people and proxies to achieve quorum.
I would like to thank the members who did attend or sent in proxies.
I was extremely disappointed because so much hard work has gone into improving the association and I don’t feel that asking members to either give up a small amount of their time or at least send in a proxy, is unreasonable.
As a result, we now have to conduct an adjourned AGM on Wednesday 16 March 2011. It will again be upstairs at Rosie O’Grady’s. Please arrive at 6.45 pm for a 7 pm start. Food can be purchased from the bar downstairs until 9 pm.
Members will receive an invite in the mail and there will be more emails to follow.
Please, please, please come to the meeting. We do need to elect a new committee to continue all of the good work that has been done. If you are not yet a member, it’s easy to join online.
If you really can’t make it on that evening, then please make sure you send us a quick email nominating another full member as your proxy. But please ensure that person is actually coming to the meeting. Each member can only hold five proxies.
If you are one of those who kindly provided us with your proxy and are unable to make the next meeting date, we would appreciate you updating your proxy for the next meeting.
Please see below links to the committee positions and if you have any further queries please contact us.
