Potential Issues

A lack of any Nominations for some committee positions could pose problems with being able to run the club effectively in the coming year.

The positions  in question being:

  • Club Secretary
  • Webmaster/Facebook Admin
  • IOM Class Captain
  • Bosun/Equipment Officer.

The Club Membership campaigned for a formalised Committee to be established, but this can only be achieved if people step forward to take on the roles.  If no one comes forward then it will not be possible to form a Committee, where would that leave us?

  • Without a Secretary the club would not be able to function efficiently.
  • Without a Webmaster/Facebook Admin, news and notices would not be published.
  • Without a Bosun/Equipment Officer, necessary maintenance, repairs and upkeep of racing equipment will not be possible.
  • Without an IOM Class Captain, the class would not be represented.

If you require information regarding any of the above roles before accepting a nomination please contact Geoff and he will advise accordingly.

The Club also has a pressing issue with regard to the 2018 AGM. As we do not currently have a Club Secretary the position arises that there is no one to take and produce Minutes of the AGM. Without this being done, nothing will be able to be recorded and any proposals, motions etc will not be officially recorded. This task is key to being able to correctly hold and run the AGM.

We are therefore looking for a volunteer to step forward and undertake this key role.

If we are unable to find a willing volunteer by 8th Dec there may be no choice other than to postpone the AGM until such time we are able to find someone to undertake the roll. A decision as to being able to hold or adjourn the AGM will have to be taken at least a week prior to the AGM Date 15 Dec in order to give members prior notice.
