Well it is June and our meeting is next week. John Graham from the Ryerson Index is speaking.
At this meeting we will be accepting nominations fro committee positions, especially Treasurer/Membership, Library and Ordinary Member. These positions aren't very taxing and we only meet, as a committee three or four times a year, at the Sports Club. Please consider standing and let us know on Tuesday. The only thing is, you MUST be a financial member of the group. This brings me to the reminder that fees are due by 31 June, before our AGM in July. See Teresa about them.
Craig Whiting, our current ordinary member is reviewing our constitution, in light of changes Fair Trading has made. We might be looking at either a new constitution, making change to ours or accepting theirs.
These are our up-coming meeting topics.
