Sean, found this from last year, though it may help any new guys here understand why the AGM is so important.

Apologies but I will not be there next week, unless I can get back from Wales in time, tis a busy week for me at work.

 

 

 

 

Tis that AGM time again.

12 months on its time for our annual plea to get you the members to attend the 2012 AGM.
Last year roughly 10% of the membership managed to show up despite a pretty decent free raffle and a pre meeting Xmas meal with yer riding mates. Despite being vey frustrating to those who do care how the group is ran, this is not enough to fairly represent the thoughts and opinions of the membership as a whole.

So lets try again this year. The AGM is your opportunity to voice your opinion on all aspects of how the group you pay to join conducts itself during the next 12 months as well as reflecting on the last 12 months.

For those new to the group; Every TRF group is ran by committee, yes its a little antiquated but as we are a organisation ran by volunteers who hold your money, it is the only truly democratic way to operate.

The running order for the evening will be something along the lines of;

· 2013 officer reports, this gives a pretty accurate summery of all our activities for the year (approx 3-5 minutes from each officer).

· Nominations and presentation for officers for 2014.

· Any other business.

· Free Raffle.

Regarding officers for 2014, this gives Devon group a chance to move forward with fresh faces at the helm with fresh ideas. However new faces standing up on the night voted for by a small amount of attendees is not necessarily a good idea, therefore nominations must be made and seconded previous to the AGM where possible.

This also goes for points of any other business. Any member wishing to raise and discuss a subject must submit an outline and be present on the night

It has become kind of tradition for members to get together before the AGM and enjoy some festive treats, The Dolphin has a excellent Xmas menu running throughout December with a 3 course meal.  Landlord Rob will also do a reduced cost two course meal for you, alternatively the existing bar menu is available. For those that wish to eat; can you please call The Dolphin on 01626 832413 and book a table, please state you are eating with Devon TRF and be in the bar ready to eat by 6.30.

So Guys, if you have any opinions as to how we run Devon group please attend and make your thoughts known. There is absolutely no point bleating to your mates or on forums about issues that bother you, or for that matter sitting on a corker of an idea that members might love.

Support your officers, let them know you care and please make every effort to turn up on Tuesday at 8.00pm (6.30pm for food)

Excellent - thanks for that, well said.

Contrary to popular belief, with it being the time of year for fairy tales and all.............but all of the elves are actually other wise engaged, so are not available for volunteering to help run Devon TRF.......... that just leaves the membership to step up to the plate to ensure we all live happily ever after.........

Excellent 3-course Xmas meal, very well run meeting (thanks Steve and Sean!), and, if I remember correctly, we filled all the officer positions!

Particular congratulations to Russell on his 12-month "trial" appointment wink

24 months was the agreed contract length wink

You signed it wink

And if you fail to uphold the duration there will be no golden handshake with huge pay off, you'll have to buy every member a pint biggrinbiggrin
