The 23rd Annual General Meeting of Strathkelvin Ramblers will be held in the Park Centre, 45 Kerr Street, Kirkintilloch on Thursday 19th 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 two 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 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. A number of approaches have been made, with limited success, however there are still vacancies to be filled.
If you want to make a contribution to the future well-being of our club, 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 19th November.
