Re: What happened?
Greetings! The headline version of the AGM, as requested. 1. Audit of accounts (financial statements) had not been completed so they couldn't be approved. 2. Elections - all unopposed except six to Executive who are: Dorothy Hamilton Andrew Kellett Alistair Reid Margaret Ross Pauline Stewart David Watson 3. Fees - increase to GBP 10 approved (GBP 15 tossed out and GBP 12 withdrawn) 4. New 23 member Management Board to be elected at next year's AGM (Option 1) approved by a large majority 5. Bristol motion for one member one vote (Option 3) was defeated by a margin of about 3 to 1. 6. Edinburgh motion to put it all off to next year was defeated 7. Proposal to set up "Friends of the RSCDS" was defeated. The meeting ended at 6:50 pm having started at 2:30 and was technically an adjournment as a re-convened meeting will be needed to approve the Accounts when they are available. There were also some social functions but I was far too involved in those to be able to report on them.
