Hi all RoCs members.
Romsey Climbers will be holding the RoCs AGM at Calshot climbing wall in the Boothman room on Friday November 16th starting at 8-00 pm. The AGM usually only lasts to about 9-30 pm and then we retire to the cafe for a drink and a chat.
Prior to the AGM, we also invite all members to join us at Calshot for a climb from 6-00 pm to 8-00 pm. Put this date in your diary and please support us by attending the AGM, even if you can not climb with us that evening.
The AGM is a low key friendly meeting with not too much to discuss, other than closing the years outstanding business from the previous committee meetings (usually a very quick event!), voting in the new committee for 2109, and discussing any points raised by attending members. This is your chance to tell us of any ideas or thoughts you have with the way RoCs is run.
If any RoCs club member wishes to stand for one of the committee roles, can you please let me know so that I can put forward the proposal. The existing committee members will be asked if they wish to continue in their roles for 2019 at the next committee meeting in October.
The AGM is also an ideal time to renew your RoCs membership for 2019. It is still only £20 (Cash or Cheque only) for the year including your Club membership with the BMC, starting in January 2019. We hope you all will be renewing and I would really appreciate it if you can renew either at the AGM if you are attending, or certainly before the 31st December 2018. We require a new form each year for our records, and so that we can accurately update the BMC details that the BMC hold as part of your BMC Club membership.
I also have to remind you that any club member who does not renew their existing membership by the 31st January 2019, will incur an extra £5 admin fee on top of the £20 membership fee if they then decide to renew after that date. We are expected to submit all our new membership to the BMC by February and it creates a lot of extra admin work for us and the BMC if that is not achieved.
If you are not wishing to renew your membership with RoCs for next year, please let me know so that I can remove you from our records and mailing list for 2019. This will also mean you loose your BMC Club membership for 2019.
Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the AGM. Pete
