e) Other Committee members (Note the rules do not specify any other roles. Therefore it is necessary to simply elect members to the Committee. Individual roles and tasks are to be allocated at the first meeting of the new Committee. The rules allow the committee to co-opt further members, and it intends to do so within those rules as deemed necessary)
All of the above named have been proposed and nominated by members of the club in accordance with the rules, and have confirmed their willingness to serve.
Election of President
Nomination – Vincent Tourette (Managing Director Renault UK)
i) We would like the AGM to consider the offer of an electronic magazine for the club, with a membership price of £20 as current if someone takes the emagazine option and rising to £25 if someone decides to continue with the paper one. With postage and printing costs rising year on year and the environmental benefits of not using a plastic postbag or any paper we believe that the time has come to offer both options.
Proposed Michael Wrigley, Seconded Shaun Whent
ii) I propose that the Club’s Articles of Association be amended as follows :
Article 3.4 – the words “two calendar months” be replaced by “fourteen days”
Article 4.2 – the words “two months” be replaced by “fourteen days” and an additional sentence added “In the event of such a lapse of membership causing an issue of the club magazine to be missed, the said issue may be purchased by the rejoining member at a cost of £5 including postage”
Proposed Robert Slater, Seconded Alasdair Worsley
Presentation of the Hector Mackenzie-Wintle trophy.
ROC over the next 12 months
A little while ago the committee met to discuss the current activities of the club and began to discuss some ideas for the future direction of the club.
After the close of the AGM (and maybe even over lunch) the committee plan to conduct a short facilitated discussion on a number of aspects of the club’s operation. We hope that all attendees of the AGM will be able to join this discussion and help develop some ideas to ensure a successful future for the club.
If you have any questions before Sunday please email Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org
A current membership card will be required to vote at the meeting
Tea and Coffee will be provided.
The Brewery Tap restaurant offers a Sunday Lunch Carvery for £7.95 and bar snacks are also available.
