AGM – Good or Not Good?
… depends on your point of view. It was certainly well attended – as AGM’s go. And those who attended were not backward at coming forward (as my Gran used to say) – we even experienced a unanimous vote!
The downside was we allowed some of the discussions to divert the meeting from its main purpose (to receive reports on activities – finances – elect officers etc) and, as a consequence struggled to get through a full agenda in a way which allowed sufficient time to each and every item.
However – there were heartfelt views expressed and a feeling that work was being done at this meeting – even if this meeting possibly wasn’t the place to be doing that work.
I left looking forward to 2011 with optimism; given the enthusiasm for a more pro-active engagement with the community to make as many people as possible aware of our core values.
Much AGM business did get done – thanks to members dragging the meeting back to the job-in-hand.
A new Treasurer was elected – a steering group of elected officers and ordinary members was floated – and a brand new post ‘On-Line Marketing Officer’ was created.
Full minutes will be forwarded to all Members.
