Dear Torbay Sailing Club Members,
The information to follow has importance to it, and concerns the continuation of what has been a fantastic 2018/2019 season.
Firstly this is a formal invite for you to attend our end of season prizegiving. This will be held at the Torbay Sailing Club, on Sunday 16th June from 3pm. More information will come in due course, but there will be some sort of dinner arrangement for a small fee, and a great time had.
It is really important to come and congratulate those who have succeeded this season within our club. But also, really important to turn up for the following.
The prizegiving is where nominations are received for elected positions, and other roles within the club are filled for the upcoming season, in this case the 2019/2020 season. Please note nominations may be received after the prizegiving until 7 days prior the AGM in writing.
At the most recent General Committee meeting, we have had some members indicate that they will be stepping down from various positions. This will not take effect until the 1st of September, after ratification at the AGM of the incoming elected positions (30th August - save the date and not to be missed due to something similar to last year).
This ensures that from the prizegiving until the 1st September, you are able to work alongside the person whose role you may be taking on.
Here is a brief run down of what will be on the whiteboard at the the prizegiving for you to put your name against, or put nominations in for. Please send any nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org, before the prizegiving. A nomination form is attached.
Flag officers: Commodore, Vice-Commodore, Rear Commodore, Honorary Secretary and Honoray Treasurer
General committee: Flag officers, plus 5 - 10 other members
Sailing committee: Rear-commodore (chair), plus up to 15 other members including fleet captains
Other roles: Heaps of them, if everyone just does a little bit. See attached document.
We are working on drafting up some information around the roles. If you have any queries in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact Tony (021 393 272), Gareth (027 723 4949) or Antoinette (021 038 8955).
