CHAIRMAN (resulting from the death of Huw Griffith). - Norman Land, the existing Vice-Chairman, has been nominated for this position. 

VICE-CHAIRMAN – Dave Roberts (retiring Secretary) has been nominated for this position, in the event that Norman Land is elected Chairman

ASSISTANT SHOW SECRETARY (with a view to taking over as Show Secretary at the 2016 AGM) – No nomination received, so volunteer required

ERDDIG SITE REPRESENTATIVE – No nomination received, so volunteer required.

VICTORIA ROAD SITE REPRESENTATIVE Kate Thurton has been nominated for this position

NOTE: If Norman Land is not appointed Chairman, he will continue as Vice-Chairman and in his other role as Prices Lane Site representative. 

The other officers and Committee members who are continuing in their roles are:

Pete Brown (Treasurer and shop buyer)
Mike Jarvis (Show Secretary)
Derek Griffiths (Tanyfron Site Representative)
Nev Pate (Committee Member and assistant shop buyer)

        6.   Annual Show – to receive a report from the Show Secretary on the 2015 Show and a recommendation from the Committee that our Annual Show be changed from a members’ only show to an open show.

        7.   Award in Memory of Huw Griffith – to consider proposals, as discussed with Huw’s sister.

        8.   Shop Opening Hours – Of the members who responded to the survey, the majority favoured a Saturday opening from 11.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.  This suits the regular shop volunteers and so the Committee has decided that this change be implemented for 2016.  The Committee will also be considering other possible changes, e.g. not opening the shop in October.

Following the formal AGM business, there will be an OPEN DISCUSSION about the future of the Association, shop stocks, shop rota etc.   This will be followed by a fun QUIZ.
