Online Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM)
Monday 1st March 2021 7:30pm

The Committee has called an EGM. This will replace the Club AGM this year. Details for the online meeting will be sent by email.
As required by the Constitution of the Club, the Secretary has been informed in writing of the Committee’s decision to call this EGM. This decision has been made because the coronavirus crisis has meant that this past Club year (from 2 March 2020 to 1 March 2021) is a year which has been empty of the usual full programme of Club meets, meetings and activities, and therefore, a kind of “non-year” for the Club. With this in mind, the Committee considers it more appropriate to replace this year’s AGM with an EGM to be held on Zoom. Members are invited to attend and to vote on the following proposals.
These are fairly extraordinary proposals at the end of what has been an extraordinary year!
The only business to be debated and approved at this EGM is what is listed in the above proposals, so the Committee hopes that the EGM will be a relatively short meeting. 15 members are required for a quorum, so we hope that at least 10 members will attend!
Linda Sinclair, President

1. That the 2021 AGM be replaced by this EGM because of the effects of the absence of Club activities caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

2. That we consider this past Club year (from 2 March 2020 to 1 March 2021) a non-year/a year that doesn’t count as regards the normal roles and tasks of the Club Committee because the normal programme of club meets, meetings and activities has not taken place.
This being the case, the members of the Committee have agreed to continue in post for this coming year March 2021 to March 2022.

3. The past year (2nd March 2020 to 1st March 2021) will not be counted as a year in post on the Committee.
If you do not agree to this, Colin Sinclair will have to stand down as Meet Secretary, having completed his 4 years in post. A new Meet Secretary will, therefore, have to be elected.

4. This year’s accounts will be prepared by the Treasurer, but not audited. They will be held over until prior to the AGM in March 2022 when they will be audited along with the accounts for the year 2021-2022. The accounts for both years will then be presented for approval at the 2022 AGM.

5. The Treasurer will propose that the annual subscription remains the same for 2021 -2022.

6. Following the 2020 AGM last March, the Committee had one issue to address: proposed changes to the Constitution.
We agreed that the priority was to produce the Meet Calendar for this year and that discussion of the Constitution would be shelved until that was completed. The Coronavirus crisis then hit and the changes to the Constitution are still waiting to be decided. This action will now be carried through to this coming year with the changes to the Constitution to be presented for approval at the 2022 AGM.
