5th Annual General Meeting

Our 5th AGM will be held on Monday 31st January 2011, 7:30pm at Emmanuel Church

We want people to stand for the Offices of Treasurer, Secretary and Social Secretary. We would also like to hear from anyone who would be interested in standing for any other Office if they have a passion for it or suitable skills.

With our main focus no longer being to provide a community centre, we are effectively starting again from scratch.  Therefore, if you think SCA should alter its consitution, please provide details before 31st December so we can formalise these in time for the AGM.

Proposed changes to the constitution: None yet.

For the minutes of previous meetings, see SCA ~ Meeting Minutes
