OK, so just to clarify, if I've sent in the form but haven't paid yet, it means I am a member who can participate in the AGM?

umm spot the thicko :oops: but i'm confused by this in the other thread-
Chit-chat, questions, comments etc may be posted in other threads under this category.
the chit chat i get, but questions & comments? do that just mean the ones not pertaining directly to official business in that thread? i'm just not sure what we're allowed to post on that one other than "present" ?!?! :lol: :oops:

:oops: in my past occupation 90% of official business was conducted over a box of beers & a ciggie :oops: so i'm a little gauche when it comes to agm protocol ;)

It's because that thread is the official minutes of the meeting. The minutes are a record of who spoke and what was decided, don't usually contain chit chat.
When I took minutes at the last AGM I was at, basically I noted down who spoke, briefly what they said (I had the reports from various members in note form already so didn't need to write that as well), what we discussed as a group, who voted and what the vote was/who was elected, time we opened, closed....that kinda thing.

It's all quite formal, and it needed to be submitted to public record, so that's why no goss ;)

Hope that helps 8-) .

so umm if we wanted to discuss RNW (for example) we would do it in a separate thread, then the essential parts would be recorded in the proper thread??

LOL Carla. No it's not finished until the chairperson says it is , hahaha.

purpose of AGM is to have the Board's reports (eg Chairperson's, Secretary's, Treasurer's etc) and to approve the financial statements. And to elect the new Board. We're up to the part where we need to elect the new Board. Lots of discussion going on on the sub AGM thread to have people nominated and seconded then we can vote them in :-)
