Annual General Meeting Agenda

 

All nominations will be voted on by members at the meeting on Sunday.

 

For all financial members who wish to have a proxy vote if they're unable to attend for the AGM. If you are unable to attend please email info@qrf.org.au with something along the lines of this:

 

I,..........of, .................being a financial member of the Queensland Rodent Fanciers Inc, appoint ..........as my proxy to vote for me on my behalf at the AGM of the association to be held on 2nd Feb, 2015. The constitution calls for a signature but I'm sure we can dispense with that if you just put your full name at the bottom.

 

If you wish to use the proxy vote to vote for a committee position which has been advised, or for or against a proposal. you use a similar format:

 

I.........of..........being a financial member of the Queensland Rodent Fanciers Inc, appoint.........as my proxy to vote for me on my behalf at the AGM of the association to be held on 2nd Feb, 2015. 

I wish to vote for :

(Person of preferance) as (position)

(Persons of preference) as committee members

 

I vote for/against proposal 1....

i vote for/against proposal 2....

 

Sorry guys for not adding this. Forgot that we have a lot of new members not aware of how things work with this. And as our first show is the AGM this time - there are a number of people who aren't able to attend.

Discussion Proposals:

-Nikki Herrick - 

1. Financial Report from Kirra Gerber.

 

2. Voting in of new members - committee members have become more familiar with the constitution as it stands and we realised that all new members have to be voted in. Renewing members don't need to be voted it, they just roll over to a new year - but any new members will have to be voted in.

 

3.I propose that we set up permanent subcommittees that are reviewed each year at the same time as committee members. I propose that we set up a permanent registered breeders subcommittee at least to handle all the registered breeder applications and voting on them. Registered breeder subcomittees to be composed of at least 3 registered breeders, and potentially 5-6 people all up to look at and work on the registered breeders. These people will need to collate the forms, do the interviews and ensure that all requirements are met by applying breeders.

 

-Sandy O'Hare - I propose limiting the number of general committee members to a manageable number. I haven't yet come up with what this number should be. It's very easy for posts to get bogged down with too many members having a say on the committee page which can make it difficult to get business done. A limit of 6 general committee members or no more than 30% of the financial members should give a broad enough cross-section of the club I think.
