Volunteers urgently required for the Wendover Society
WENDOVER SOCIETY ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
ST ANNE’S HALL, WENDOVER
7.00PM 27TH MARCH 2020
VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY REQUIRED TO FILL VACANT COMMITTEE POSTS
Key posts – Chairman, Vice Chairman and Secretary – have been vacant for the last year meaning that the society has been unable to effectively carry out its activities to help “protect the charm and scale of Wendover”. With the imminent retirement of three of the four remaining Committee members at the end of March the Wendover Society will have to be dissolved unless volunteers step forward to fill the vacant posts before the AGM on 27 March.
Following the failure to receive any nominations for those Executive Committee posts at the 2019 AGM a Special General Meeting was later held to review the way forward for the Wendover Society.
During the well-attended SGM there was a wide-ranging discussion, but no new nominations for election to the Committee were forthcoming.
It was agreed that in these circumstances the Committee had no alternative but to substantially reduce its commitments until the AGM, at which time the position would be reviewed.
It was made clear to members, that unless volunteers to stand for election to these posts, came forward by the date of the 2020 AGM, then the Society would have no choice but to enter a process of formal dissolution due to the impending resignations of three of the four existing Committee members.
To date, and despite the best efforts of current Committee members to encourage positive responses from the wider membership, there have been no volunteers. It is, therefore, with considerable regret, we must advise members that this course of action will be followed at the AGM, subject to the receipt of any timely applications to join the Committee before or at the meeting.
