The Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the Cambridge Lindy Hoppers Society will take place between the beginners and intermediates lessons on Wednesday 22nd February at the Centre at St Pauls (the usual Wednesday class venue). It will start promptly at 2030.
You can read about the AGM in the constitution on the website here but in summary the agenda will be: a review of CLH activities in 2011; a review of CLH finances in 2011; election of a new committee; any other business and general discussion.
Electing a new committee is an important part of the AGM. If you think you’d like to stand for a position on the committee, please do talk to one of the existing committee about what it involves.
There is a maximum of eight committee members – President, Treasurer and six general committee members. Anyone standing for a position must be a current CLH member, and be proposed and seconded by two other CLH members. Dancing skill or experience is not important, what is important is enthusiasm and being to commit significant time and effort to helping with running CLH and all the behind the scenes work that goes on.
If you do want to stand for a position on the committee, please send your name, the names of your proposer and seconder, the position you are standing for (President, Treasurer or general committee member) and a paragraph on why you think you’d be a good member of the committee, to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Friday 17th February.
If there is no competition for committee places (i.e. nominations for one President, one Treasurer and six or fewer general committee members) the society will be asked to approve the committee on a ‘general aye’.
If there is competition for places an election will be organised after the AGM. Please note you must also be a current CLH member to vote in any election.
Please do come along to show your support for CLH and have an opportunity to get involved and give your feedback – there will be some time for general discussion on any points people raise.
