AGM Special Resolutions

You will be asked to vote on three special resolutions prior to the start of our AGM. To be eligible to vote, you must be; a current financial member, be present at the AGM or, have a proxy made available to another financial member.

These changes are needed so that we can streamline our management, dealings with others and simplify our competition results.

On the night of the AGM, you will be given a coloured voting paper with the choices outlined. You will be asked to fill these in and lodge them with the committee prior to the start of the AGM. The attached document outlines the committee’s plan.
