July 2018 News Bulletin
“Partnerships, Affiliations and the AGM”.
Although there is no legal requirement for small organisations to have an AGM (unless they have Company status) it is a good practice and it an excellent way of ensuring that the committee i.e those doing the work to keep the show on the road, are still aligned with wishes of the members.
Some people love AGMs – but they are few and far between and my recent experience is that unless there is either a crisis or some form of blatant bribery – usually tea and cake or the presence of a celebrity – then it is often difficult to even be quorate.
So our AGM this year (on the evening August 21st in Stutton) will again be held together with a barbecue as this has proved to be a very successful formula in recent years.
Our latest News Bulletin which you can download by clicking here highlights that we are going to have to update our Constitution at this years AGM and especially review our relationship with the BHA. Our next meeting on Tuesday 9th July will be an opportunity to explore the issues and get consensus for motions to change the Constitution.
