We are excited to announce that over the last couple of weeks several more members have volunteered for 2023 board positions and we are now confident that we will be able to cover the remaining slots. With continuity now assured, there was no need for a “motion to dissolve” at the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) on June 26, 2022 and , after delivering a very positive “state of the club” message, the current president was delighted to introduce the volunteers for next year:
At the board meeting on June 3, the executive committee elected to call an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) to ask members to vote on the following motion:
“Because efforts to form a board for 2023 have so far failed to attract volunteers for the roles of President, Events, Publicity and Webmaster, the Brits ‘n’ US Club will be dissolved on or before the end of the 2022.”
Notice is hereby given that this EGM is scheduled to take place during the event at Truman Rec Center on June 26, after the Pizza has been served and before the Bingo starts. The board will present the case for dissolution and their strategy for winding down the club, then answer questions and provide time for discussion before the vote. We will need 36 active members (20% of the membership) present to achieve a quorum.
Meanwhile, if enough volunteers step forward to fill the remaining open board positions for 2023 this motion can be withdrawn and the club will continue as before (which is actually our preferred outcome).
Update as of June 27: Before the EGM on June 26, enough volunteers had stepped up that there was no longer any need for the motion to dissolve. See related post: BritsnUS Club Set To Continue!
