Yes, it’s that time of the year again. The Finchley Games Club Annual General Meeting,
We have to have one of these as the members own the club and it’s the place to make suggestions as to how the club is run and the direction it will take.
There will be reports from the Executive, elections to the committee, a discussion of the club finances including a conversation regarding membership and session attendance fees and then any other motions for discussion.
Finally followed by the (in?)famous ‘Any Other Business’ where the floor is open to any (sensible) topics.
Unless there are many things to discuss, it’s not usually a lengthy affair, leaving plenty of time to play games.
If you wish to stand for a position, please give your name to a member of the committee.
If you have a topic for discussion, then please pass it on to a committee member.
NOTE: FGC membership runs AGM to AGM and lapses at the end of the meeting, so you will need to renew.
Minutes From the previous meeting.
Statement from the Chair.
Statement from the Treasurer.
Statement from the Secretary.
Elections to the Senior Committee.
Elections to the ordinary Committee members.
Motions for Discussion.
Any Other Business.
If you wish to speak, please raise your hand.
The meeting Chair will then indicate when it is your time to speak.
All comments must be addressed through the Chair.
Please be as brief as possible, there may be many people who want to speak on a topic and while everyone WILL be heard, we are at the club to play board games, not administrative ones. At some point, if required, a vote may be called and the question settled by a simple majority, on a show of hands. (NOTE: Votes to change the FGC rules, need to be quorate, that is to say that there must be 2/3 of the members present to participate.)
NOTE: It is the right of the Chair to ask a member to stop speaking. This will be performed with good grace and it is expected that the member will reciprocate.
Of course, these rules are often interpreted broadly and the Chair will allow this to a point, so as to facilitate discussion. However, it is the right of the Chair to restore good order, if the general conduct has got ‘a bit rowdy’.Posted Wednesday 26th April 2023 11:08:23 by Ian Pearson
