Due to Covid-19 the 2020 AGM was postponed.
Following advice from the Kennel Club, it is proposed that some of the items are dealt with by way of a members vote in order to comply with the requirements on annual returns to the Kennel Club.
Please see the below notice from the Chair of the Club for members attention on these requirements.
Date 21st June 2020
We hope this communication finds you all well.
As a result of the Covid19 pandemic we chose to postpone our AGM, scheduled March 2020. We still do need to hold the 2020 AGM, as per the original agenda and are not permitted to make any changes.
So, to enable us to resolve the outstanding matters quickly and for the committee to officially appoint its new members, together with delivering the KC annual returns we would seek your permission to follow the KC advice as suggested as below;
‘In line with the Kennel Club guidelines it is possible with the consent of the membership to conduct an email/ postal vote for certain items on the Agenda of the postponed 2020 AGM’
If this is acceptable to members of the SWDC, the following Agenda items need your vote,
Approval of signed off and audited accounts
Proposed annual increase of membership by £1.50 to all categories
Appointment of Auditor
Appointment of Committee Members as nominated 2020
To enable us to take this forward we must to give eligible i.e. fully paid up by
members as of 31/1/2020, at least 14 days prior notice of the proposed postal AGM.
Notification of Postal AGM 1ST JULY 2020
We propose the AGM would take place by postal communications on;
Wednesday 15TH JULY 2020
allowing two weeks for the return of voting slips.
(we will notify you when the results are known by being published on our website)
The committee hope you agree with this strategy and look forward to planning exciting opportunities to share for 2121.
