AGM Saturday 2nd April 2016
The meeting began with the unofficial business of prize presentation.
The official part of the AGM is to elect/re-elect members of the Board and Joint Management Committee and approve any proposed change to rules. All positions had one nominee and were unanimously approved. The previously vacant positions of Men's Captain and Vice-Captain have been filled. Keith Fleming, our Men's Competition Secretary, said next season would be his last and invited another volunteer to shadow him and take over in the following season.
The outgoing President Daphne Blackburn has raised over £3000 for her nominated charity Parkinson's UK. She thanked everyone for their generous contributions and handed over to the incoming President Barry McCann whose charity will be the Rainbow Centre.
There were no proposed rule changes.
The Finance Director presented his report. The Club is in a very healthy financial position and there is no need to alter the membership fees and rink fees, which are the lowest in the region. There is a positive cash position which will finance the new building extension without a loan being required. With 800 playing members and approximately 200 social members, membership is full with a waiting list (further memberships are expected to become available at the end of the Summer season).
The Chairman paid tribute to the many unpaid volunteers who make this Club such a well-run and highly successful one, and which underlies the excellent financial position.
The meeting closed within 45 minutes, after which there was a short open forum.
