Annual General Meeting – (postponed from Nov 2021)
The GIFCC will hold the 2021 Annual General Meeting on MARCH 26 TH 2022. The meeting will take place on Zoom to allow Covid-safe and accessible attendance for all.
Please note, all attendees will be required to register to participate in the meeting.
Financial members are entitled to vote.
Currently there are only 6 committee members which means we often don’t meet the requisite quorum of 5. For the GIFCC to meet its objectives, it needs a strong and full Committee, ie., 4 executive members (Chair, Deputy Chair, Treasurer and Secretary) and up to 5 members as per the GIFCC Constitution.
The response to our 2020 AGM was extremely disappointing with no attendees except the committee, and no nominations.
This year, with some current committee members intending to retire, it is crucial that there are sufficient nominations to enable formation of a committee, as outlined above, for the GIFCC to continue to operate.
With concerns about the future viability of the GIFCC in mind, the current committee proposes to put a special resolution to the AGM. The resolution will require financial members to vote with regards to applying for voluntary cancellation of the GIFCC’s registration to operate as an incorporated association.
N.B. AGM official notice, registration, nomination, proxy voting forms, details of the special resolution and meeting agenda will be provided along with formal notice of the AGM three weeks prior to the AGM.
