The 2023 AGM was held at The Trout Inn over a delicious Breakfast.
Outgoing Chair, Shirley Wheeler was presented with flowers and wine and a New Committee was elected.
All members of the current Steering Group were present with the exception of Victoria Davidson, who is on maternity leave.
Four other members of the Business Club were also present.
The minutes of the 2022 AGM had been circulated and were approved as a correct record of proceedings
There were no matters arising.
It had been agreed following the adoption of the new Club Constitution at 2022 AGM that the accounting year of the Club should be changed to 31 December, thus giving a nine months’ accounting period from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023. The accounts had been distributed to the Steering Group prior to the meeting and will be published once inspected. However, the meeting accepted them as a correct reflection of the accounts of the Club.
Annual subscription. Following discussion the meeting agreed an increase in the membership subscription to £50 (an increase of £5). This fee is for a business, regardless of the number of employees a business has, any of whom are able to attend meetings of the Club.
