Annual General Meeting
The club AGM was on Wednesday 2nd September at the clubhouse. There were a couple of changes to the committee, Tony Cross being elected Men’s Track Captain and after hanging in for an extra year Kelvin Westerman finally resigned as Newsletter Editor. I’m sure you will all join me in thanking Kelvin for his efforts over the years in what can be a thankless task. In fact, he must have been incredibly good as editor because we have ‘had’ to replace him with a new Media Team! Also need to thank James Braithwaite, the outgoing Track Captain for his support during his tenure.
Darren White, myself and Alison Burnett (who may not know anything about this yet) will manage the website and will use it for all news items and articles submitted by members. Periodically, when there is sufficient content this will be sent out in newsletter format.
There have been some small increases to the subscriptions for the coming year:
Seniors (over 18) £27
Full time Students (18-21) £3
Senior Citizens (After one year’s full subscription) £7.50
In addition, all the above must pay the England Athletics registration fee, currently £12
Non-Active Members £5.00
Payment can be made by cash or cheque or alternatively by bank transfer to East Hull Harriers & AC account at Yorkshire Bank. Sort code 05-05-20 Account number 27860336
You can also pay in 3 equal instalments from October to December by Standing Order Mandate (A copy will be available on the website). Payment by transfer or standing order is preferred as it reduces the administrative burden on the Club so members are encouraged to use these methods.
The meeting also agreed a change to the constitution in respect of payment of subscriptions. Subscriptions continue to fall due from the 1st October but must now be paid before 1st January.
And finally, with a view to the long term, it was agreed to investigate what will be necessary to maintain and secure suitable premises for the future.
