Cycle Winchester will hold its second Annual General Meeting at The South Downs Social, Kings Walk, Winchester, on 5th February.
We are pleased to announce that Cycle Winchester will hold its second Annual General Meeting at The South Downs Social, Kings Walk, Winchester, on 5th February. Doors open at 7pm, with time to buy refreshments from the South Downs Social bar. The meeting commences at 7.30pm, with a break around 8.15pm for further refreshments and socialising, and we aim to finish by 9:30pm.
The meeting will start with the formal business of the AGM, but will also provide insight into current issues, some light-hearted activities, and a chance to socialise. We want to make this an inclusive and fun event, so we are happy to welcome non-members, as non-voting participants.
Our three officers, Chair: John Arthur, Treasurer: Mike Caldwell, and Secretary: Rob Jordan, are nearing the end of their three-year terms, and so there will be an election for each role. John and Mike have very kindly agreed to stand for a further term. Rob is not standing for re-election as secretary, although he is happy to continue with his specialist roles including managing the website, membership database, and Winchester Cycling Charter. We therefore have a vacancy as secretary, which mainly involves attending our monthly meetings and recording and circulating minutes. It’s a great opportunity for a member to contribute and learn more about our work! We’ll take nominations for any of the roles on the night, but would be very happy to hear in advance from potential candidates for secretary.
Agenda (formal business):
- Matters Arising from previous AGM (4th February 2023)
- Chair’s report
- Treasurer’s report
- Q & A
