Branch AGM 2017

The Annual General Meeting of the London Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society will be held on Saturday 10 June 2017 at 6.45 p.m. at St. Columba’s Church Hall, Pont Street, London, SW1X 0BD. It will be followed by our End of Season Dance. Members and friends of the Branch are invited to attend both events but only members may vote at the AGM.

If you cannot get to the meeting we will still be pleased to see you at the dance.

The meeting usually lasts about 45 minutes. You will learn about the work of the Branch and our plans for the future. The Committee welcomes your comments and opinions, either through a formal motion, which must be received in writing by the Branch Secretary by 31 March, or during general discussion at the meeting. The motion should be signed by the proposer and seconder both of whom must be members of the Branch. Only motions submitted in advance and appearing on the Agenda can be voted upon. An agenda for the meeting and a report covering the Branch’s activities will be circulated with the next issue of The Reel.

Members are also encouraged to stand for election as an office holder or Committee member. Nominees should provide the Secretary with a written nomination by 31 March signed by the nominee, a proposer and a seconder, all of whom must be Branch members. There are nine positions in total on the Committee (Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary) and six ordinary members. If there are more candidates than places, ballot papers will be issued to all Branch members with the next issue of The Reel. It is also possible to help with various aspects of the running of the Branch without necessarily being on the Committee.
