The 24th Annual General Meeting of Strathkelvin
Ramblers will be held in the Park Centre, 45 Kerr Street, Kirkintilloch on
Thursday 17th November 2015, starting at 7.00 pm.
The committee would like to encourage as many
members as possible to come along and support our club. In addition to the
formal part of the evening where we look back over the past 12 months and start
planning for the year ahead there is also the social aspect where we can chat
with friends over a cup of tea or coffee and some home baking.
Following the success of the raffle over the last
few years, we plan to do the same again at this year’s AGM in order to boost
club funds. Donations of raffle prizes can be handed to Ann Martin or any
member of the committee.
As you may be aware, our constitution dictates that
all committee members retire at the annual general meeting, but are eligible
for re-election. A number of the current committee have indicated that they will not be
seeking re-election on this occasion. In addition, we have the right to be
represented on both the North Strathclyde Area and Scottish Councils. As a
consequence, any member of our group has the opportunity to join the
committee or to represent Strathkelvin Ramblers at
the Area or National level. If any of these roles is of interest, please speak
to a member of the committee.
Over the years, ‘low’ walkers have been under-
represented on the committee and this is something the existing committee
members are keen to redress. If you want to make a contribution to the future
well-being of our club by joining the committee, whether you are a ‘high’ or a ‘low’ walker, please give
this some serious thought over the next couple of weeks. If you require any
further information, any committee member will be happy to help.
The AGM is one of the few occasions over the year
where all club members can get together and the committee look forward to
welcoming you to the Park Centre on the 17th November.
In a change to previous years, the various papers related to the AGM (agenda, previous minutes, annual reports etc.) will be issued in booklet form. Copies will be distributed on the night.
