2020 AGM

Dear WP Members

 

It’s that time of the year when we need to address the Constitutional formalities of Western Province Surfing.

 

Given the circumstances and practicalities of holding our AGM under COVID-19 regulations, the 2020 Western Province Surfing Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held via Zoom.

 

A meeting invitation will be sent out via e-mail closer to the time but members are recommended to do the following.

Diarise the date and time : 18:00 hr Thursday 26 November 2020

Be Informed: Read the previous years minutes and review the audited Annual Financial Statements. 

Be involved: If you cannot attend or may not attend, Complete a proxy form in favour of a committee member or another registered member to form the quorum.

Be Committed: If you would like to stand for the committee, or nominate someone to the committee, complete and submit a Nomination Form. (with a signature of the nominee and the proposer).

Please find all documents under the 2020 AGM info tab in the menu bar above.

Robert Scott, Shuan Solomons, Nenette Scott and Bruce Anderson retire from the committee in terms of the Constitution. All four have been nominated to stand again for another term.

 

Given that very few members have actually become paid up members for 2020 as a result of the COVID shutting down sporting events for most of the year, the WP Committee has resolved to extend any valid 2019 membership up to the date of the AGM. Any person who joined as a paid up member during 2020 will also be recognised and have their membership extended to the end of 2021.

 

Please note that memberships are now processed through the Surfing South Africa website and the membership fee of R300 recognises membership of both Western Province Surfing and Surfing South Africa.

 

Should there be any matters that a member, as defined above, wishes to place on the agenda under “other”, please submit a written request to wpsurfing@gmail.com at least 7 days prior to the meeting.

 

A copy of the Constitution is available on request (to wpsurfing@gmail.com )

 

The Committee looks forward to your participation.
