This email is just to notify you of our AGM (Annual general meeting) being
held on the 20th of February, location TBC.
There are two points about the AGM that make it very important to attend,
firstly this is where the new committee are elected and they will be running
the club with immediate effect, please come along and vote for who you think
is the best person for each position. Secondly the AGM is your opportunity
to raise discussions, issues or comments you have with the club as a whole,
for example there could be a slight amendment youd like to see to club
rules, or maybe you have a suggestion of a new walk youd like the new
committee to consider for next year. If you have a point for discussion let
me know and Ill add it to the agenda or you can raise your point at the end
of the meeting.
So what if you fancy getting more involved and actually becoming a
committee member? Well firstly you need to decide which position you are
going to stand for. (see the newsletter out this week for info on each
position,) Next you need to get two club members to nominate you - they
should sign a slip of paper stating which position you are running for and
then hand this in to the current committee before the start of the meeting
at latest. Finally, at the AGM the nominees will be voted upon by the rest
of the club. As a committee member you will be expected to attend weekly
meetings and take responsibility for your part in running the club.
There are a few rules regarding the election of the new committee. Firstly
you must be a student at Swansea University and a member of Swansea
University hiking club from February 2007 to February 2008. (Sorry but this
does mean no final year students or exchange students can stand). The AGM is
only open to club members and each member can only vote once for who they
would like to fill each position.
After the meeting we will be heading to Rosie and Phils house for pancakes
due to the fact that the meeting takes place on pancake day !!
If youve any questions feel free to ask
Hope to see you all soon
