AGM 2021 - Committee - Tuesday, October 12, 2021

At the 2021 AGM the Outgoing Chairman stated that the Committee was four members short and that an incomplete Committee made the admistration of the Centre that much more difficult

The Secretary (also the Webmaster) addressed the meeting to inform the members that he would not be standing again at AGM 2022, in either capacity. CAMC rules require a Secretary to be in position, no Secretary equals no functioning Centre

The Incoming Chairman stated his concerns regarding the present shortfall of Committee members and the implications for the future.

As a result of these comments four members came forward to offer their services for co-option on to Committee. In order to enable this Mr John Holdway volunteered to take on the Vice-Chairman role on a purely temporary basis to assist the Centre.

The following are the changes approved by the Committee since the AGM:

Mr John Holdway - Vice-Chairman
Mr Adi Berridge - New Rallier Liaison, New Website Liaison, Digital Media Officer
Mrs Joanne Berridge - Junior Liaison Officer
Mrs Nicky Bullock - Assistant Secretary
Mrs Nicky Jefferson - Junior Liaison Officer

A full list of the Committee, and their roles, is available under the "Committee" tab on the top row

Payment for Rallies - Monday, September 20, 2021

We have been informed by our bank that from the 1st November 2021 we wil be charged for the use of the account at 40p per cheque and 0.4% for all cash transactions. There will be no charge for BACs or Bank Transfers.

Whilst these charges are individually quite small, the accumulative effect on Centre accounts over a full year could be reasonably substantial due to the number of cheques processed. The Committee have decided to take no immediate action, the Centre will initially absorb these costs, however the situation will be kept under review.

Costs to the Centre would be substantially reduced if members pay by Bank Transfer instead of cheques. Both deposits and/or full payments can be made easily by following the instructions given in the link :

Payment for Rallies

Members are asked to consider the use of Bank Transfer for as many payments as possible.

There would be no change to present fees, which are all listed under the relevant rally, and if refunds become due they would also be made by Bank Transfer by the Treasurer. Not only would this reduce Centre costs, but it would also speed up the process.
