GMTB AGM 13-Sep-2011 in Traralgon

Have you ever been to an event and wondered how it happened? Or had an idea for the club but did not know how to start? Well we have positions for you.

We will be holding an Annual General Meeting on 13th September 2011 at the GRAND JUNCTION HOTEL, 8-22 FRANKLIN STREET, TRARALGON. This is your opportunity to put your hand up and take on a role to help with the running of the club. Most roles are not too time consuming and some are almost as easy as turning up to committee meetings to providing input in decision making.

The agenda for the meeting can be found here.

Different roles require different time commitment, however most roles are fairly small in size. If you want to know more then contact one of our current committee members or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

All positions are declared vacant at the AGM, so do not be afraid to put your hand up because someone else did it and they might want it again. Most current committee members have multiple roles at the moment and would be more than happy to focus on a specific area of the club to keep us moving forward.

If you do wish to nominate for the committee, you will need to complete a Nomination Form (available here) and return to it:

Gippsland MTB Inc
PO Box 792
Traralgon, Vic, 3844

Also, if you cannot be there on the night but one of your mates is going you can still vote for people by completing a Proxy Appointment Form (available here) and sending it to the address above. This all sounds very formal and in fact it is probably the most formal part of the club at the moment. So please, just fill in the forms and we’ll get some new faces and ideas in the prime positions to keep the club growing.
