Men's Shed sets meeting date, but not method
The Umina Beach Men's Shed is planning to hold its annual general meeting on Monday, October 18.
However, it is yet to decide how the meeting will be held.
"The way we hold the meeting is a yet to be determined, being dependant on the Covid rules at that time," said secretary Mr Vic Brown.
"It could possibly be held at the Shed as in the past, with a barbecue; or with social distancing limitations and group numbers, perhaps in parkland; or via Zoom from home.
"The reality is we have to prepare for all these possible solutions as the meeting has to take place.
"The standard requirement for attendance is that one has to be a financial member - paid up for this current year July 2021 to June 2022.
"The AGM is an important platform for the ongoing well being of the Shed.
"Members wanting to become committee members and current committee members require your vote, that is if they are prepared to stand for another year.
"So the underlying purpose of an annual meeting is to receive and accept the annual reports and set or update the committee for the year.
"The paperwork for volunteers to stand and vote for committee positions will be made available in due course, once it's determined in what format the meeting can be held.
"Wouldn't it be terrific if we hold the AGM in the style and venue of the past years with all the fellowship and fun and meeting face to face again?"
