Extraordinary General Meeting

 

At the AGM in May, a number of key committee posts were not filled because of a lack of candidates and it was agreed to hold the elections over until an EGM in September to allow time for volunteers to come forward.

 

The EGM will be held on Friday 29th September at 7.30pm at the Forum, Moat Lane, Towcester. All fully paid up members are invited to attend.

Election of Officers

The Club Committee is made up of elected officers and co-opted members.

The elected positions which make up the Management Committee of the Club are the Chair, the Treasurer, the Secretary, the Membership Secretary and the Juniors Representative.

The holders of these positions are normally elected by members at the AGM each year and a member is allowed to hold the position for a maximum of three years unless otherwise agreed by the AGM.

The Secretary and Membership Secretary were elected at the AGM but there are three positions for which we need to find new volunteers

Treasurer – After four years in the post Simon Woodward has regrettably decided to stand down because of other pressures on his time.

The role of Treasurer is key to the running of the club as it involves the management of all club monies and it is important that we find a volunteer prepared to stand for election at the meeting.

Simon has already said that he will ensure there is a full handover.

Juniors Representative – A new Management Committee role agreed at the AGM and we now need to elect someone to be the voice of our junior athletes on the committee and who will co-ordinate the juniors activities.

Chair – After eleven years as either Secretary or Chair, I would prefer to step down if someone else is willing to take on the role.

Any member can stand for election to these three positions and I am pleased to say that we have had interest in both the Treasurer and Junior Representative roles.

Members interested in standing for election at the EGM should let the Chair (chairman@silsonac.org.uk) and Secretary (secretary@silsonac.org.uk) know in writing by Friday 22nd September 2017.

At the AGM the club normally provides a buffet for those members attending and in the case of this EGM, we propose to adjourn to the Towcester Mill after the meeting and the club will pay for the first drink (pint, glass of wine, soft drink) for all members who attend the EGM
