We’ll be holding this year’s JHERA AGM Monday 6th November at 8:15PM. It’ll be held ‘Upstairs’ at The Royal Oak Pub, 73 Columbia Road.
The AGM will be followed by JHERA Drinks.
We are looking for more members on the committee. The committee tends to meet once every two months and meetings last about 1.5 hours. Discussions can be robust, but meetings are always followed by a friendly drink. Between meetings business is conducted via email, so email access is essential to being a fully functioning committee member but lack of access does not preclude membership to the committee. Other responsibilities are shared by the willing, including the organisation of social events. Non committee members get involved in helping out, so if you’re worried about your time commitment, then it’s really about 12 hours a year!
Any registered member of JHERA can lodge with the Secretary. Motions which must be lodged with the secretary 14 days before the AGM, i.e. Monday 23rd October.
o A motion should be a clear statement which needs a YES/NO response. It can be accompanied by a statement of background information.
o The motion may be amended by the AGM.
o The result of vote will be binding on the Committee.
o Members are advised to discuss their motions with the Chair, or a member of the committee before submitting it, but they do not have to do so.
Topics for the discussion must be lodged with the secretary 7 days before the AGM. Topics will be discussed as long as there is time at the AGM.
