AGM Results

The results are in! 

We have had an unprecedented number of people vote this year, more than any AGM in the past, which is excellent to see. It is great to see the membership all coming together to vote and show interest in the club’s future, so thank you all for your time taken to vote. 

In this email are the results, who your committee are, and who won the honourable mentions and a copy of what was written about each member who was nominated.

The results are as follows:

George Constandinides: 2 (including 1x vote for himself)

Dave Evans: 30 (including 1x vote for himself)

As you know, all other positions had no additional nominations and so the candidates who were already on the committee received 100% of the vote by default.

You’ll also notice another first in this, not only has Dave Evans won the majority of the people who voted, but with 59 members and __ votes he also has a club majority! Well done Dave! This puts us in a really excellent position to be able to help the club as much as we can, knowing we have the backing of the membership behind us. 

Next, we have had a slight re-shuffle in the Committee on who is doing what. You may have noticed this whilst voting, but I’ll outline it again for you anyway. 

James Ford has decided he wanted to step down from Club Secretary/Training Officer/Events Officer for the 2021 voting, and go back to being a Club Officer. James has been carrying out this role since he was for elected back in 2018 at the AGM, and has been on the committee since the AGM election in 2016 as club officer. I’m sure we’d all thank James for his efforts and are grateful he remains on the committee for 2021 as one of our Club Officers. 

I’ll (Sam Booton) now be taking on the role of Club Secretary and Events, and Dave Evans will be taking on the Training Officer role. He will now be the first point of call for people wishing to learn to fly, and will liaise with the instructors on who can take the student on.

Your 2021 Committee:

Dave Evans – Chairman and Training Officer

Simon Ford – Treasurer and Membership Secretary

Sam Booton – Club Secretary, Webmaster and Events

James Ford – Club Officer

Jeremy Flatt – Club Officer

Bryan Howes – Club Officer

Clive Maulden – Club Officer

Remember, you can either contact us directly or use the new club emails (membership@wmac.ukcontact@wmac.uk or webmaster@wmac.uk)

The website has been updated already to reflect these changes, which I know a vast majority of you appreciate the website being frequently updated to reflect any changes.

The virtual meeting minutes will be made available tonight too. They will be a little different to normal, with no meeting having actually being held. The names of people who voted (i.e. present for the virtual AGM) will be listed, but not who you all voted for as that remains anonymous to the membership. Points raised in the Discussion Forum and queries made on the voting forms for the reports will also be addressed on there.
