Philip Withnall

Election of the President of the Executive Committee

There was one nomination for the role, Philip Withnall

  • Since he wasn’t able to be present he left some words for the Chair to say

    -He has been a member of the club, and would like to help it through difficult spells

    -Isn’t RON

The Chair then opened for discussion and questions to current committee members

  • Tom Leach

    -Phil probably will not be the president for a full year

    -Another EGM will be needed – however a better planned changeover will be possible, with Phil not planning a sudden resignation – he will give warning, at which point an EGM can be planned for a Thursday pub at least 2 weeks later

    -Possibly will need to reallocate roles within the committee to spread load off of the president

    -An EGM may be needed to alter the constitution to better allow for the resignation of the president

  • John Ockenden

    -To the committee – Whilst it can be seen that you are addressing the symptoms of the President leaving, by finding and electing a new President, members cannot see you addressing the cause of him leaving?

  • Camilla Penney, Joshua Abrahams and David Hoyle

    -It was a personal decision taken by Marcus to resign from his role

    -Therefore not really possible to take action against

    -But also unlikely to happen again

  • John Ockenden leaves meeting

Philip Withnall is duly elected President – 11 Votes for, 0 Absentions

Any Other Business

  • No

Thomas Leach closed the meeting
