Our group AGM will be held at 4pm on Saturday 9th November in Meeting Room 3 at RISC, 35-39 London Street, Reading RG1 4PS. All members are invited to attend, to have their say on how the group is run and elect next year’s committee.
It is also proposed to make some amendments to the group’s constitution, in line with similar changes proposed by other groups within the Berkshire area. The purpose of these amendments is:
- to update the wording in line with the Ramblers’ Articles of Association and Standing Orders, which have been changed and renumbered since the constitution was last updated in 2007,
- to make the wording clearer and less ambiguous,
- to allow the committee to appoint extra members to subcommittees from outside the main committee if required (e.g. for organising special events), and
- to remove a discrepancy between the quorum and minimum committee size.
In case that’s not enough excitement for one day, we have a walk planned beforehand, and some of us will probably stay around for some drinks and/or food afterwards!
