Notice of Annual General Meeting

This year’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 29 October 2013, 7.30pm for 8pm (ending by 10pm), at the Friends’ Meeting House on Jesus Lane. All are very welcome. Note: this is a week before the usual date (of the first Tuesday of November) to avoid clashing with Bonfire Night! There is no meeting on 5 November.

The evening will begin with a talk by a guest speaker, followed by an opportunity for questions.

Our speaker this year

We are delighted to announce that Carlton Reid has indicated he should be able to speak at our AGM, on his new book, Roads Were Not Built For Cars.

Formal AGM business

The business of the AGM will then follow, including elections to the Committee.

Any motions for the AGM must reach the Chairman via our usual contact details by Tuesday, 8 October 2013. We will contact members to give more information on the AGM shortly afterwards.

Minutes of the last AGM will be sent to our members’ e-mail list a week in advance. Please let us know if you require a paper copy.

Elections

The AGM is the time at which a new committee – the Board of Trustees of the Charity – is elected. The committee represents the ‘front line’ of the Campaign. On your behalf, committee members assist with consultation responses, attend meetings, and administer aspects of the Campaign, all depending on the time they can spare.

It is an excellent opportunity to become more involved in the Campaign, promote cycling, learn about local government, and make a real difference to the local quality of life for all.

Every year all the committee posts, as listed below, are up for election – please consider standing! All members of the Campaign are allowed to vote.

If you want to stand for any of the positions, our rules require that you have a proposer who will sign a note of support before the start of the AGM. We are particularly keen to get candidates for the New Media, Education and Under 25 posts. Please join us for this important work.

The posts are as follows:

  • Chair (= Charity Chair)
  • Co-ordinator (= Charity Secretary)
  • Treasurer (= Charity Treasurer)
  • Membership Secretary
  • Liaison Officer
  • Planning Co-ordinator
  • Newsletter Editor
  • Events Officer
  • Recruitment Officer
  • Web and New Media Officer
  • Press Officer
  • Education Officer
  • Under 25
  • Up to two General Campaigner posts; any posts above unfilled will become general campaigner posts.

The General Campaigner posts are flexible to accommodate your special interest or expertise. You can find out more about the roles of the committee members at www.camcycle.org.uk/about/charity/boardoftrustees/
