This is an invitation to the Canoe Club Annual General Meeting which will be held at the Club House on Saturday 17th March 2018 at 13:00.

Election of Committee:  All posts on the committee come up for re-election each year at the AGM.  If you are not currently on the club committee but you wish to stand for a specific post please email Mike detailing the post you are standing for and naming two current club members who support you in standing.

Appointment of Proxies:  If you are not able to attend the AGM in person you can appoint either the chairman or secretary of the meeting, or someone known to you who is attending the meeting, to vote on your behalf.  You must notify Mike, as club secretary, in writing (e-mail or paper) before the meeting certifying that you are eligible to vote and giving the name of your proxy. Please use the appointment of proxy form below to notify us of your proxy.

Voting at the meeting: Only fully paid up, full members and any honorary members who have been awarded the status of full member have the right to vote at the AGM or be appointed in to a committee position. We will be consulting a list of current paid up members at the meeting.

Update to the Constitution: We are proposing an update to the way membership is charged for new joiners. Currently new members pay a reduced fee in their second year of membership, the proposal is to change this so a reduced fee in the year they join. The updated constitution below includes this change in section 3.4e. Along with this change, we will use the provision joining fee already in the constitution and will start charging new joiners for the 2018/19 membership year £50 when they join. This update contains another change, to the definition of the Social membership type in section 3.3 b ii, to remove duplication with the Out of Port Membership.
