    It is a requirement of the Articles of Association that the club hold an Annual General Meeting each year requiring a quorum of 40 members, which is held as part of the National Rally. The formal meeting reviews, debates and approves as appropriate the :-

    To help make the weekend attractive to members, who may be deterred by the thought of a formal meeting, the main committee has nominated a committee member to head a small National Rally Sub-committee. This Sub-committee organises a suitable venue for the AGM, and also arranges an evening meals and entertainment for the weekend.

    The AGM is an opportunity for members to come along to meet their committee and make their views known on any proposed changes to the Articles of Association; vote in committee members and to join in the 'open forum' that immediately follows the main meeting. There is normally a Question & Answer session where Senior Management (from Auto Sleepers Group), are willing to be quizzed by the members, on Company matters.

    The sub-committee is always looking for new venues that have suitable facilities and in a location that will suit the majority of the membership - if you know of any such site please let any committee member know.
