AGM Saturday 5th May 2018


(Simon Baker) #1

Welcome Members,

Hopefully you’ve all enjoyed another fantastic year with GTOUK, whether that be at meets, forum, seeking help to keep your beast on the road, or, all of the above :-).
But sadly with only one more Club meet on the Calendar - the Christmas Bash, we are looking towards the first event of the new Membership Year, the GTO Annual General Meeting.

Q. “So What is the AGM all about?”

A. In short, it’s all about YOU, the Members, and the way the Club is operated.

The Club is operated by Rules of a Constitution, rules not only imposed on Members, but on the Committee too, so for that reason, the GTOUK Committee need to answer to YOU each year regarding how we spend your subscription money, money generated elsewhere and the decisions we make behind the scenes.

Being on the Committee is a job, at times a very tedious one, but every year at the AGM, the Committee have to ‘stand down’ and be voted back on by YOU the Members, having proved their worth over the last 12 months to be there and run your Club, it’s not a God given right.

All Members will receive a postal invite to the AGM, but also within that will be a welcome for you to be on the Committee, so if you think you can help in any way and give that commitment to GTOUK in whatever format, send in your Nomination form.

So… the 3 main things which happen at the AGM are:-

1.Your Treasurer - Simon - explains how funds have been spent in the previous year.

2 You choose, and vote in the new Committee who you want to take the Club forward for the next 12 months.

3.The Committee listens to YOU, ideas, questions, requests, grievances, ways you may be able to help. So don’t feel nervous to stick your hand up and ask/say/suggest, it’s actually quite disappointing if we get to this stage and ‘silence’ falls upon the room.

THIS IS YOUR TIME, TO HAVE YOUR SAY.

This part - the AGM - takes about 1.0 – 1.5 hrs, after that, we go out for food, drink and have non-intellectual conversation,.

Brewery tour sounds excellent and something completely different from previous years :sunglasses:


(Scott Robertshaw) #7

Its very good been a few times


(Tracy Parkin) #8

Just a point, whilst the Brewery Tour is Compliments of the Club for Full Members/Spouses attending the whole AGM it still needs to be booked in the Club Shop (no payment required) to enable us to calculate numbers taking part to notify the Venue.

So don’t forget to book HERE if you wish to go on the tour after the AGM.

@kevin_rhodes don’t forget though Kevin, you still need to do the Complimentary Brewery Tour ticket in the Club Shop if you are staying for that, as tickets are limited and numbers are required before the day.
