TO MEMBERS OF THE RUGBY AND DISTRICT BRIDGE LEAGUE
NOTICE OF GENERAL MEETING OF THE RUGBY AND DISTRICT BRIDGE LEAGUE
Friday, 20 December, 7.00 pm at The Rugby International Fellowship Church,
53 Cymbeline Way, Rugby CV22 6JZ
REASON FOR CALLING THIS MEETING
The Chairman, John Drake, unfortunately has offered his resignation due to family considerations. This follows the resignations over the past several weeks of the League Secretary, the Fixtures Secretary and an elected member. The Committee now consists of one elected Officer (Sid Downton, Treasurer), two elected members and two co-opted members.
As a temporary measure Sid Downton has kindly agreed to become the Acting Chairman and Acting League Secretary.
Section 6.2 of the Constitution prohibits the Committee from transacting any business unless quorate. A quorum shall consist of four members, two of whom must be elected officers. With only one elected officer now on the Committee it is clearly impossible to be quorate and so the Committee cannot function.
A General Meeting of the Members must therefore be called to elect a Committee. Section 3.3 of the Constitution requires the meeting to be held within 28 days of this Notice, but at least seven days’ notice must be given to Team Captains. It has been very difficult to find a suitable date within these constraints and with Christmas approaching.
2) Election of Chairman
3) Election of Secretary
4) Election of Treasurer (Sid Downton is prepared to stand for re-election)
5) Election of Fixtures Secretary
6) Election of three ordinary members
Written nominations (signed by nominee, proposer and seconder) should be delivered to Mr Sid Downton at 9 Spottiswood Close, Cawston, Rugby CV22 7GP by Wednesday,
18 December 2013. Nominees, proposers and seconders must be registered members of the Rugby and District Bridge League.
SID DOWNTON, ACTING SECRETARY 2nd December 2013
