Extraordinary General Meeting

Dear Members

This upcoming  EGM is required to formalise two issues we had arising from the AGM. One was that at the time of the AGM the Club’s Financial Statement had not been certified by the auditor as he was away on holiday. The accounts have now been certified.

Secondly, the payment of honoraria was not included in the AGM agenda papers and therefore could not be approved at the AGM. We are now seeking members’ approval at the EGM.

The approval of the AGM minutes is a procedural matter.

Craig Withell
