The Moreland BUG’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday 22nd October 2009, in place of our normal monthly meeting. One of the purposes of the meeting is to elect a committee of management for the next year. I invite and encourage all BUG members (which includes all subscribers to this email list) to consider nominating for a position on the BUG committee.
As someone who has held a role on the Committee since its inception, I can recommend it as a great way to be active in a fantastic community group, and to contribute to better outcomes for cyclists in the City of Moreland and beyond.
The following positions are open for nomination:
* Deputy Convenor
* 3 x Ordinary Members
For a description of the roles and duties associated with each position, please contact Phuong (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a copy of the Bicycle User Group’s Constitution.
Nominations must be made in writing to the Secretary (Phuong Le) by 15th October, and must be signed by at least 2 other members of the BUG. The nomination form is attached to this email. Please send nominations to:
The Secretary, Moreland BUG
C/- PO Box 518
Scanned copies may also be emailed to Phuong email@example.com
I would like to announce that I will not be standing for the role of Convenor for the next term. Serving in this role for the past four years has been a great pleasure for me – I’ve learnt an awful lot and have been lucky to work alongside fabulous people both within and outside the BUG. I feel it’s time for someone else to have this opportunity, and I hope there will be a bunch of nominees for the position. I’d like to point out that it is possible to share the position too, so if you’re interested in nominating but feel you would like some extra support or somebody to share the workload, consider making a joint nomination with another member.
I also note that Geoff Lewis will not be standing for the position of Treasurer this year – the BUG sincerely thanks Geoff for his years of great work in this role.
I look forward to seeing the nominations roll in…
