As I have mentioned on several occasions the committee has been working through the changes in the constitution. Last month we emailed the draft document out to everyone that has supplied an email address to the club for them to read and submit any changes they felt were needed and/ or ask any questions. The points raised in this process were taken to the last committee meeting for discussion. The committee has agreed to all the changes made to the constitution. They have worked very hard and shown great dedication to the club during this process.
Where to from here.
At the completion of the next general Meeting (April) we will have a Special General meeting to vote on the changes. Only financial members have the right to vote on this matter. If the resolution is passed, we then send it off to the Dept of Fair Trading for approval.
So, in line with that, I hereby give notice that a Special general Meeting will be conducted on the 1st April 2020 after the completion of the normal General meeting, roughly about 8.30pm. The meeting will be held at the North Services Leagues Club on ANZAC Ave, Kallangur.
During the next week the new constitution along with a Proxy voting form will be emailed out to everyone that has supplied the club with an email address. Proxy forms are only used for those that cannot make to the meeting. If you can't make to the meeting please complete the Proxy form and email it back to the President for collation at the meeting. Forms will also be available at the March general meeting. If you are attending the Special General meeting a show of hands vote will be conducted.
Onto other matters, the club is going to hold a Trip Leaders info night in the coming weeks. This is to give members of the club that are not quite sure on what is involved in being a Trip Leader what to do. If you are interested, please let the Trip Coordinator know or put your name down on the trip sheet at the meeting. If you can organise a family holiday you have the skills to be a trip leader. Remember no trip leaders, no trips.
Keep your ears open for news about the Fraser Island Clean Up that is fast approaching. They are usually pretty good trips and cheaper than normal with discounted ferry and camping fees.
Lastly, myself and the club do not have any issues with members organising trip/ events with other clubs/ organisations. I feel that it is better that the committee is approached first informing us of the intention, rather than after the plans have already been made.
Get dirty and have fun. From the bush to the shore.
