I'm still looking for a volunteer (we can actually send up to 3 delegates) or group of people, who would like to attend Bushwalking NSW's quarterly General Meeting on Tuesday 20th August in order to represent the club. It is held at Redfern Town Hall.
For those of you not fortunate enough to be able to join us in Burwood for the All Nations AGM last Saturday, you missed out on some great homemade treats and a chance to hear about how your club operates.
Most importantly, the new club constitution was unanimously adopted by those present. Thanks again to Liam for all your hard work that enabled us to get to this point.
The following were nominated without opposition to form the ANB Committee for the next 12 months:
If you are wanting to get involved with your club, then your nomination for a committee position needs to be received by Friday.
Proxy votes for the Special Resolution can also be made.
There will be a door prize, photo competition and savioury/sweet cake competition as well, but you have to be there to win !!
NEW for this year's AGM. We've had a book called 'Take a Walk in Southern NSW and the ACT' by John and Lyn Daly donated to the club by the authors. The book covers more than 2000km of walking tracks from Sydney south to the Victorian border with outline maps and detailed descriptions as well as a plethora of other information about the National Parks covered in the book.
- Speaker from NSW Sport on considerations and benefits of encouraging children and young people to join our clubs. Several clubs have Child Protection Officers. Speaker mentioned that it will soon be mandatory for clubs to implement child safety standards if under 18 year olds participate in their activities. This is not just the physical safety or children.
If you want a sneak peak at the documentation for the upcoming club AGM on Saturday 29th June, it has now been prepared and can be found at:
In the coming weeks you will be receiving the Notice of and Agenda for the AGM and Special Resolution in the post as well as email reminders about this important club annual event, with further details of where and when it is being held and details of what takes place.
If you'd like to organise an activity for the club, but feel that you don't have the inspiration to choose what to do, the experience to plan it, or the confidence to lead it, then this might provide the help you need.
The members listed below have offered to help select, plan, survey & lead activities. Contact one of them and they will provide assistance and advice where possible.
The club invites you to submit activities for the Winter program (June 1 to September 15).
For more information see the email sent on May 5, or contact me.
