It’s that time of year again folks!
The Club’s Annual General meeting will be held on the 25th January 2019. The venue is Charles Leeks House, 7 Coggeshall Road, CM9 9 DB and will start at 7pm.
Members are now invited to submit any proposals for discussion at the meeting. They should be submitted to the secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than Monday 17th of December so that we have time to send out the details in advance to any member wishing to attend the meeting.
There are two current proposals from this year’s committee:
1) That membership subscriptions for 2019 remain at the same level as this year;
2) That the 2019 Committee, reviews methods of Communication within the Club and makes changes as required and directed by the members attending the A.G.M.
There will be more details on this provided at the meeting and we fully expect it to produce an active debate.
You are also invited to send in your nominations for this year’s awards. As a reminder the categories are:
Junior Improver - awarded to the most improved U18
Adult Improver - awarded to the most improved over 18
Junior Paddler – awarded for an outstanding paddling achievement in the year
Adult Paddler – awarded for an outstanding paddling achievement in the year
Clubman – for services to the Club
Swimmer of the year – otherwise known as an OBE (Out of Boat Experience)
Ron Brown trophy – not been awarded for a few years and may well feature in the discussion item above on communication.
Can anyone who was awarded a trophy last year please return it to any Committee member.
Lastly, we also need nominations for the 2019 Committee. If you wish to nominate someone then please check with the individual that they are willing to stand and if so then pass the nomination on to any current Committee member. Of the current committee, most have indicated that they are willing to stand again for 2019 with Kevin Dudley standing down.
This notice is being sent to all members and published on the website – apologies if that means you get it twice!!
