Social EventsPosted by Webmaster Sat, October 08, 2016 11:12:09

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.
