Fearing CV19’s growing restrictions might interfere with the holding of the Society’s Annual General Meeting, officials were quick to get that and the Special General Meeting finalised yesterday at Magpie Sports Club.
“We had a reasonable turnout attending” Society President Ian Granland said “but I feel the recent edict of the restrictions to the amount of people permitted in groups, might have added to the fact that there was a smaller number there yesterday than normal, however there was well more than enough for a quorum” he continued.
All but Tom Mahon stood for re-election and those that did were re-installed to their previous posts.
The Society issued a comprehensive annual report which outline their activities throughout last year with the treasurer declaring a healthy bank balance. Click here to read the report.
This year they will appoint a patron with negotiations currently being formalised.
There is much more work being undertaken with treasurer John Addison, suggesting a new and revised method to make all that is stored in the Society’s collection being able to be viewed on line. Discussions are currently ongoing with the Society’s programmer to facilitate this and other moves to improve their administrative and archival systems.
