Dear SCYC Members,

Please be advised that the 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on 26th September 2018 at 6:00PM in the SCYC Clubroom.

To download a form please click:

NOTE:  Only Ordinary and Family members are eligible to vote. If you have not yet renewed your membership, please do not hesitate to do so now.

As part of the AGM process, members must vote for the election of Club Office Bearers as follows:

Management Committee:

  • Commodore

  • Vice Commodore

  • Rear Commodore - Sailing

  • Secretary

  • Treasurer

  • Social Director

  • Director - Other

The Club also typically has a Sailing Committee, the composition of which is not defined in the Club's rules. Traditionally, membership of the Sailing Committee has consisted of Commodore, Vice Commodore, Rear Commodore - Sailing and at least two other members, not necessarily Management Committee members.

Before the election of Office bearers there is a Nomination process. Voting only occurs when there is more than one Nomination for a position.

A club the size of SCYC, which operates entirely on volunteers, is dependent on active and committed committee members. We would very much encourage you to consider standing for the committee and assisting your club during the 2018/19 sailing season. If you would like to know more about what's involved, please do not hesitate to contact any of your existing committee members.

If you cannot attend the meeting and wish to vote you can complete the attached Proxy Form and nominate your proxy. Alternatively, simply nominate the Chairman as your proxy after completing the voting section of the form.

If you are attending the meeting you do NOT need to return the proxy form. However, if you do plan to attend, for housekeeping purposes it would be helpful if you could let the Secretary know in advance.

Key dates for members to be aware of are as follows:

Tuesday           4 September 2018            AGM documents

Wednesday.   12 September 2018.           Signed Nomination Forms due

Wednesday.   19 September 2018.           List of Candidates posted on Club Notice Board

Wednesday.   26 September 2018.           AGM Meeting in the Clubroom.

Thank you for your continued support of our club.

Regards,

Harry Blom

SCYC Secretary
