RSCDS London Branch AGM

RSCDS London Branch AGM 2021

Saturday 12 June 2021 at 5.00 p.m.

The Annual General Meeting of the London Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society will take place via Zoom on Saturday 12 June 2021 from 5.00 p.m. As for our first virtual meeting, the 2020 AGM, our 2021 AGM will be followed by a virtual End of Season Social.  Members and friends of the Branch are invited to attend both events but only members may vote at the AGM.

We expect the meeting to last around 30 minutes and look forward to sharing with you not only the work of the Branch throughout this most unusual of years, (this will include findings from our members’ survey) as well as some thoughts for the future.  Ahead of the meeting the Committee welcomes your comments and opinions, through a formal motion, which must be received in writing by the Branch Secretary by 31 March 2021.  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 2021 signed by the nominee, a proposer and a seconder, all of whom must be Branch members. There are twelve positions in total on the Committee (Chair, Vice Chair Treasurer and Secretary) and eight ordinary members   We hope that members will step forward and join the Committee to contribute to its work and support Scottish country dancing so please consider nominating yourself. 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.
