Item 6 – ELECTION OF MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE 2022/23 & VOTE

RJ explained that Section 8 of the Club Constitution, which deals with the AGM, paragraph b requires all members of the management committee to resign their posts and seek re-election (if they wish) annually.

Three members have decided not to seek re-election.

RJ advised that three members have put their names forward for each of the positions and that the members were required to approve their election to the committee.

  • Treasurer – Phil Lee
  • General Committee Member – David Brown
