Annual General Meeting Wednesday 18th March 2020 & Membership Renewals

 Dear Members,

The AGM will be held at The Kingsley Centre on Wednesday 18th March starting at 7.30 p.m. At the AGM it is your opportunity to propose new ideas or rule changes and most importantly the re-election of officers. As I am sure you all know, we still do not have a Secretary, so this is your opportunity to put yourself forward or to elect somebody for this position.

Please CLICK HERE to print off a proposal form for re-election of officers to the committee and to propose any new ideas or rule changes for your club. Please note that this form must be returned to the committee at the above address by 14th February, 2020 to be considered at the AGM.

Anyone wishing to propose someone for office should first ensure that person wishes to stand. The name should then be entered on the attached form, along with the name of the proposer and seconder. In the event of more than one candidate for a position, then a vote will be taken to determine the elected member.

Also on the attached form is an area for your new ideas or proposed rule changes. Please send your completed forms to the OAC Chair at the above address, by 14th February 2020.

Drinks and nibbles will be provided after the formal meeting has ended.

Membership renewals will be held at The Kingsley Centre on the following dates:-
Saturday 4th April – 3.00 p.m. until 5.00 p.m.
Friday 17th April – 5.00 p.m. until 7.00 p.m.
Saturday 13th June – 3.00 p.m. until 5.00 p.m.
 
Best wishes,
Marion Ironman.
Chair.
