SUNDAY 7th April
Hopefully you’ve all enjoyed another fantastic year with GTOUK, whether that be at meets, the Forum, seeking help to keep your beast on the road.
So the AGM is all about you, the members and meeting other members that have only been a name on the forum, but at the AGM it’s your voice we listen to, so if you have some good ideas for the Club going forward, or just something you’d like to suggest, this this is where to do it.
We don’t bite and welcome any feedback.
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, 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 time 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 24 months to be there and run your Club.
All Members 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.
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 few years.
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
AGM Start Time - 15:30, meet if you like for a natter & drink at 14:00.
