Today (5 Dec) is International Volunteers day and so I say a huge thank you to all of you – Volunteers ARE Motorsport. You should all be very proud of yourselves.
We had our final Council meeting of the year and AGM last Sunday at Milton Keynes. Thank you to those of you who took the time to attend the AGM – it’s always good to see familiar as well as new faces.
My third year as National Chair comes to a rapid close – multiple circuit visits, training and AGMs mean I have managed to meet many of our members as well as maintain my signatures on my PRC! I offered myself for re-election as required under Club rules and no-one objected – so I am here for another three years!
I made a few key announcements in my AGM report – full details of which will be published in due course so that you can read all of the submitted reports. But here are the details of those announcements:
A number of individuals are stepping down from Council this year – and in no particular order I would like us to thank:
Between them a staggering number of decades on Council! Steve, Pete, Mike, John and Ian have been given well deserved Life Memberships of the club and I thank them all for their amazing dedication and phenomenal support – all making the club run efficiently and providing such superb advice for our members. I wish them all well and hope to still see them out and about ………Their successors have big boots to fill and I wish them every success in their new roles and ask you the members to support as necessary.
Our renewal process is not yet open for 2020 – many of our members take advantage of our direct debit scheme which is processed in early January. All membership packs will be distributed early next year – so hang fire! We will send out a reminder once the final quirks of our IT upgrade are ironed out.
Yes it’s early December but this is my last blog before the festivities – some of you may have already started (we had our works Christmas party on Friday!).
So I will conclude by wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year.
