Annual General Meeting: Last year we started the year with registration and moved quickly into attending our classes. This year we are not sure yet where and when we will start! What we do know for certain is that we hold our Annual General Meeting in January. We have a provisional date of Monday 18th for this but it will be confirmed by email and text. Our challenge is that we will not have access anywhere that will hold a quorum for our meeting if we are to meet social distancing requirements! At this point it looks like it will have to be held over Zoom. Documentation for nominations etc will be available at the DPCC. Again, this will be updated as soon as we have more certainty. A big thank you to people who had big ideas: Some of our early Committee Members have completed 6 years of tenure – when they are obliged by our Constitution to take a break for a minimum of a year. We will have 5 places to fill on the Committee for 2021. Those taking a break or retiring have been in from the start and, on behalf of all members, we would like to thank them so much for all the effort involved in driving our group to becoming such a success. What would be doing with ourselves if you have not pushed forward with the whole idea? Like all things worth having, there was lots of discussion and organizing and some challenging times. We became aware of so many things needed to run a successful group and lots of these people brought many skills with them and shared them around. Thank you to you all – you have been brilliant volunteers and we want to publicly acknowledge your work here. Might you be a replacement on the Committee? Most of the big challenges have been visited and viewed and worked on but there will always be some new ones coming along. However, the bedrock work is now complete and new committee members will have the experience of others to fall back on. Please do not wait to be asked if we can nominate you. If you are willing to give some time to the Committee, please contact Jennifer on 086 8806808.
