Club AGM

To all Members of Berwick Bowling Club.
Please remember that the Club AGM will be held on Tuesday 12th May at 7.00pm.

(NB: The Bar will not be opened until after the Meeting).

Please read the following documents

  1. The AGM Agenda (here) and print off a copy to bring with you to the AGM.

  1. Minutes of the Combined Bowls Section AGM (here) for season 2013-14.

This year, the Bowls Section AGM, has been rolled into a single Club AGM, and the activities of the Bowls, Membership and Services Sections will all be reported on at this AGM as well as in the Club’s Annual Report.

  1. A copy of last year’s Club AGM Minutes (here).

Voting for positions on the Bowls Section (Vice-Chairman), and both Pennant Selection Committees, take place over the 8 days from Saturday 25th April (Anzac Day), to Saturday 2nd May, when voting ends at 5.00pm. Below is a list of times when the Polling Station, (near the Bowls Office entrance), will be manned. The Results of the elections will then be published and emailed on Monday 4th May.

The list of Members who have been Elected Unopposed, together with the name of Candidates for the elections above, can be found (here).

Because of the large number of candidates for the elections for the two Pennant Selection Committees, each voting (Full and Life) Member will get 5 votes (instead on only 1 vote), for each Selection Committee. Voters will be asked to place a X alongside up to 5 names on a voting slip, against the names of the 5 Candidates that they would like to see on each Selection Committee. The order of names on the voting slips will be decided by random selection by computer.

The 19 Candidates for these 10 positions have been asked to provide a brief summary of their reasons for nominating, their aims and objectives as a member of the Selection Committee and their skills and experience relevant to the task. Copies of these statements can be seen on the election board in the club house.

Voting Dates and Times are as follows:-

SATURDAY 25th APRIL, 2015 from 11.00am to 12.00 noon and from 4.00pm to 5.00pm
