AGM: Sunday 27th September, 2020; 11 a.m., at Molonglo Reach. 

Please come along and show your support.  While we have several nominations for committee positions, there is always something you can assist with: e.g., convener positions. We haven’t had a social or recreational paddling convener for several years; having someone to do some boat maintenance is vital to keep our boats on the water; it would be great if you could volunteer an hour a week to check the bathrooms etc. are all stocked and cleaned (the actual cleaning will be a group effort).

All positions will be vacated and all current club members are eligible to stand for and to vote on all positions. Committee members are limited to no more than two consecutive years in that position.
We will be having a lunch afterwards, so please bring a plate to share.  The BBQ will be on and some meat will be supplied – volunteers please!
