Re: AGM + Elections
I've just been reading through the constitution. Here are the parts of business that we MUST do at the AGM:
* Chairman's Annual report
* Finanacial Report
* Committee Election
* AOB relevant to the AGM
Perhaps we could split this up. Give 30 mins(ish ) over to the reports at the begining of the meeting, then have the "meat" of the meeting (presentation, group discussion, whatever) and then finish off the meeting with the election and AOB. Splitting up the formal parts of the meeting seems like a good way of keeping people engaged. Just a thought.
As soon as we can agree on an outline for the meeting I will add it to the event item that Mark has created.
Those people who intend to stand for (re)election need to organise two supporters. Details of candidates and their supporters should also go Mark's page before the meeting. After much soul searching and having spoken with various people I have decided that I will run for the position of Chair when Patrick steps down at the AGM. I have the support of Malcolm and Mark Taylor in this.
To clarify, according to our constitution, we must elect:
* Vice Chairman
* Web Master
* External Relations
We should supplement this with 3 x without portfolios. I think we should also consider reserving a position for the immediately previous Chair. Many groups and branches already do this. This would have to be ratified within the AGM, probably in the AOB section.
