Notice of an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of Cambridge Gliding Club Limited at 6pm in the clubhouse on Saturday 12th August 2017

 

Dear All,

We will be holding an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of Cambridge Gliding Club Limited at 6pm in the clubhouse on Saturday 12th August 2017.

The purpose of the EGM will be to agree the change of the Club’s subscription year to the 1st April.

We need a quorum of 25 voting members to make this change, so we have chosen the second Saturday of the Cloud Rally as the date of the EGM, when we hope many members will be present after a good day’s flying and before a good evening of socialising and barbecuing! The meeting itself should be very short, so should not interrupt the flow of the evening’s drinking / entertainment.

Further details about this change are attached below from Andrew Hulme, Club Treasurer.

Looking forwards to see you there.

Kind regards,

Michael Samuels

Secretary, Cambridge Gliding Club Limited

Dear All,
At the AGM on the 9th March 2017 there was overwhelming support for changing the Club’s subscription year to the 1st April but no formal vote was possible as appropriate notice of the change had not been issued prior to the meeting.

This change will suit new members and existing member alike and the club committee  believes that payment of annual subscription renewals are likely to be made more promptly.  A practical way of changing has been suggested by having two consecutive 9 month subscription periods with appropriately reduced subscriptions.

For example, the annual subscription (twelve months from 1/10/2017) was agreed at the AGM as £595 or if the period change is agreed then this would be £446.25 for 9 months.  Similar pro-rata figures were agreed for all other classes of membership.

The proposed change has been embodied in a replacement rule 9.1 which needs to be approved at a General Meeting and will be implemented if the rule change is passed by the EGM on the 12th August.

The existing rule:-

9.1 Annual membership subscriptions are due at the beginning of the Club’s financial year which shall run from 1 October to 30 September inclusive. A General Meeting of the Club shall determine each year, or more frequently should the need arise, the subscriptions to be paid by the following categories of members:

Full Flying

Overseas

Solo-flying spouse

Young Adult

Tug pilot

Associate.

The suggested new rule:-

9.1 Annual membership subscriptions are due at the beginning of the Club’s subscription period which shall run from 1 October 2017 to 30 June 2018 (9 months) then 1 July 2018 to 31 March 2019 (nine months) and thereafter annually from 1 April each year to the following 31 March inclusive. A General Meeting of the Club shall determine each year, or more frequently should the need arise, the subscriptions to be paid by the following categories of members:

Full Flying

Overseas

Solo-flying spouse

Young Adult

Tug pilot

Associate.
