AGM Calling notice

Dear Paddler

Apologies last night’s email for some reason lost the text and just sent the attachments. The text is now attached and should be read in conjunction with the two documents sent last night.
The Annual General Meeting of Holme Pierrepont Canoe Club will be held on Thursday the 21st of June 2018 at:

British Canoeing offices, National Watersports Centre, Adbolton Lane, Nottingham, NG12 2LU.

The meeting will start at 8.30pm with light refreshments available from 8pm.

Members should bring their membership card with them for the meeting.

The club trustees wish to bring the following two motions to the AGM.

1.     That a new trustee position be created to be responsible for White Water paddling within the club.

2.     That from August 1st 2019 all members renewing or becoming members of HPPCC will become club associate members of British Canoeing, if they are not individual members.  Information to this effect to be on renewal and new membership applications from 1st August 2018.

Information on item 2.

This item will be explained fully at the AGM to members, but briefly at present the club simply informs British canoeing of the numbers of members of the club who are not British Canoeing members, and then pays a fee for each of these members.  In the future British Canoeing wish for these members to become Club Associate members of British Canoeing with their details being passed to British Canoeing so that they can receive information from the National Governing Body.

This change will not cost members or the club any extra money, but will enable non British Canoeing members to receive information from the National Governing Body.

Election of Trustees.

The following Trustees have indicated that they are willing to stand for re-election:

Dawn Scott                          Chair

Ian Law                                Secretary

The following trustee has resigned and a replacement is now sought

Recreation                            Trevor Tarlton-Weatherall

Applications are therefore sought from any individuals who wish to stand for the position of recreational trustee.

If item 1 is passed then there will be an election for the role of White Water trustee.

The following person has expressed an interest in standing for this position.

Andy Steele

If any person wishes to stand for any trustee position then they should email the secretary Ian Law – [email protected] to register an interest.  If there are two nominations for any position then an election will take place at the AGM.  Registers of interest should be received by Thursday the 7th of June.

Role profiles are attached for the Recreation Trustee and White Water Trustee for information.

A full agenda will be sent out after the 7th of June

We look forward to seeing as many members as possible at this important annual club event.
