AGM info…

Posted on by Admin

The Arsenal West Midlands Supporters Club (AWMSC) called its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 17th June 2012.  21 members attended; hence we comfortably achieved the constitutional requirement of 8 to convene a valid AGM.

Attached are copies of the Agenda, the Minutes, and the reports from each of the elected Officers of the Club, along with a summary of the proxy votes received.

The main point of note is that we have adopted a new club constitution (a copy of which is also attached).  The new constitution provides for a revised committee structure (six ‘voting’ committee members along with a chair who only exercises a casting vote where
necessary) and also includes a more rigorous disciplinary procedure.  The following officers were elected unopposed:

Chairman

Sean
Kinson

Secretary

Steve
Grange

Treasurer

Robin

We are accepting applications for membership for the 2012/2013 season now, please contact Liz at membership@pop3.arsenalwestmidlands.co.uk for details of how to join/re-join.

You will also note that one of the Agenda items was a ‘motion’ from Doug Shipsey (the attachment entitled “2012 AGM Agenda Item.docx”).  Please note that we would take this opportunity to state that we have, in the interests of transparency, simply copied Doug’s statement in its entirety, and that the comments/statements contained within Doug’s statement in no way reflect the views of the AWMSC Committee and, further, the AWMSC Committee does not support, condone or endorse the same in any manner.  Further, the AWMSC Committee assumes no liability in tort or otherwise in respect of circulating Doug’s statement.  We have also included the response (attachment entitled “Response to Doug Shipsey Statement Final.docx”) that the AWMSC Committee intended to provide at the appropriate point in the AGM.
Disappointingly, Doug elected not to attend the AGM therefore we weren’t afforded the opportunity to respond directly to Doug’s ‘issues’.

We would take this opportunity to reassure you that all matters related to the current operation of the AWMSC are being/have been addressed fairly, democratically, and transparently.
