Dear Members, the club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) is approaching – this year it will be held on Monday 4th July at the Mindsports Centre. The observant among you will note that this is a month later than usual. This is due to the chess season being pushed back by the Covid-19 wave in January.
The Committee gives notice that the following members will stand for re-election:
- Treasurer – Matteo Bezzini
- Secretary – Adam Cranston
- Club Captain – Ben Rothwell
- Webmaster – Benji Portheault
- Diversity Officer – Tom Rendle
- Auditor – Nadim Osseiran
- No Portfolio – Chris Skulte
We are sad to announce that Bajrush Kelmendi has decided to step down from the Committee this year. As Chairman for the last eight years, Bajrush has presided over the rise of a dwindling club with a mere 20 players to a sprawling community of 200 active members. The Committee is grateful for Bajrush’s contributions.
With this in mind, John White plans to stand for election as Chairman, meaning we are actively seeking applicants to John’s former role as PR and Events Officer.
Any member who wishes to stand for a committee position, or to submit a motion for the meeting, should do so at least 30 days prior to 4th July – that is, 5th June.
If you want to support any of the committee roles, we would love to hear from you too, as there is a lot of work to run the club and any time is valued.
Please contact Club Secretary Adam, to submit details: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support!
