EGM - Saturday 30th January NuneatonAs you may be aware the 2015 AGM, which was held on Sunday 15th November at Keinton Mandeville Village Hall, Somerset, was abandoned and an EGM was called for.
Since then, the Chair and Treasurer of Open Morris have both resigned. It must be stressed that these resignations were not sue to any known malpractice, but because of misgivings both officers had regarding the future plans for the running of Open Morris.
To enable Open Morris to go forward there will be an EGM followed by an AGM held in the Midlands at the Crown Inn Nuneaton on Sat 30th Jan 2016.
These meetings are very important for the future of Open Morris and we need you to attend!
All 2015 members are eligible to vote, even if you won't be renewing your membership for 2016
The EGM will commence at 1:30PM and will be held to Decide who can and cannot vote at AGM's and EGM's, and to approve an AGM to be held immediately after the EGM.
The pub will be open from 12 Noon, with the EGM starting promptly at 1:30PM. There will be a range of cold snacks, sandiches and pies available to purchase - If you are interested in hot food, please contact John Clifford on email@example.com as soon as possible so he can communicate with the pub. The pub is suggesting chilli con carne, a hot veggy meal and another simple bulk pub meal.
As this will be the AGM, all committee positions will be open to re-election and nominations for new people to the committee.
These positions as per the constitution are - Chairperson, Secretary, Membership Secretary, Treasurer and Web Officer.
If you are interested, or know of anyone interested, please forward your nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a statement outlining who you are and what you can bring to the position at least two weeks before the AGM so information can be distributed to all members.
Please remember that nominations must have a Proposer AND Seconder side and they cannot be from the same side.
