Notice of 2018 Annual General Meeting. A free beer for Attendees!

Notice of 2018 Annual General Meeting

The club’s 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held at the Derbyshire and Lancashire Gliding Club Camphill clubhouse on Saturday the 17th of November at 7 pm. All members are welcome to attend, ask questions and vote.

This year we’d like to provide a better social opportunity for the membership to engage with each other and with the committee, to help set the direction for the coming year. We think that’s best done over a free beer and a light snack – please register your interest in the comments below to ensure we have enough for everyone. We would really like to hear your thoughts so come and join us!

…a better social opportunity for the membership to engage with each other and with the committee…

Topics For Discussion:

Coaching – Ash our Chief Coach will be available to talk about all things coaching, and our plans for coaching in the coming year. Whether you’re a current coach, would consider becoming one or just want to know how coaching can help you, come along to have your questions answered and contribute your thoughts on how you’d like to see coaching developing in the club. Whether you’re a veteran or a newbie – and whatever your perspective – come down and chat; he wants to hear from you!

Social – Our new social joint social secretaries Becca Hazzard and Simon West would love to hear any ideas you have for socials this winter!

New Members – If you are new to the club or a relatively inexperienced pilot, please come along and say hello to Chris Dervin, new members officer. Chris will be pleased to see you and answer any questions you have about the club and how we can help.


Formally, there are two main items are on the agenda for this year’s AGM: the first is that the members of the committee give their reports on the past year, including the financial position of the club. The second is that all the posts on the committee are elected. No other formal items of business are proposed this year. We intend to keep these order of business brief, but give everyone the opportunity to ask questions:

  • Reports – Chairman, Treasurer, Other.
  • Election of committee members

Several of the current committee members are standing down this year. Current members of the committee and their responsibilities are listed at

In particular, we need someone to take on the role of Chairman. Please contact Denis ( if you’d like to discuss this, or let John know ( to put your name forward for the election. At the moment, the committee has received no other nominations, but all nominations are welcome, even for posts where there is an incumbent.


As a member, you can vote at the AGM on each of the items on the agenda. If you can’t attend the meeting and would still like to cast your vote, please get in touch with John ( so arrangements can be made for your vote to be relayed at the meeting.
