Last week at our Annual General Meeting the composition for your Board of Management for 2018 was determined. Due to the withdrawal of one of the nominations there was no need for an election, and therefore Peter Thompson, Peter Schilder and Jayson Killick were appointed, and Mark Davison was reappointed. These members along with Susan Williams, Bill Harrison and myself are now the elected Board of Management members for next season.
The 2017 Annual Report and minutes from the 2016 AGM are now available on to view by clicking on the links below, in preparation for the 2017 AGM being held on Wednesday night.
Please ensure you get to the AGM and participate in the decision making processes of electing your representatives onto the Board of Management and participating in the discussion on the proposed amendments to the constitution. It is also an opportunity to pose questions to the Board of Management regarding the Annual Report or any other topic. This is an important night and I encourage all members to attend.
