OFC AGM 2021

This year our AGM will again be conducted online and by post, as there are still real concerns about holding events indoors. We are, however, very keen for our membership to have the opportunity to take part as usual.

So, welcome everyone to the Orkney Field Club’s 2021 AGM, which opens on Monday 11th October 2021 and will conclude at 12pm on Monday 25th October 2021.  

Please see the following linked documents -  (Unless we hear otherwise from you, we will assume your acceptance of these documents)

a) Minutes of the last (2020) AGM

b) The Chair’s summary of the year’s activities and  

 c) The Treasurer’s report and accounts for period 1st April 2020 to 31st March 2021

We welcome questions on any of these items, but ask that you get them to us ([email protected]) by 20th October so that we can ensure any additional information requested can be circulated to the whole membership. 


Nominations for and election of committee   

The committee can be a maximum of 15. Two members are standing down at the AGM - Sydney Gauld and Reuben Johnston. 

Nine current committee members are prepared to stand again - Helen Aiton (current vice-chair), John Crossley (current Chair), Keith Fairclough, Anne Gascoigne, Penny Martin, Brian Ribbands (current Treasurer), Jenny Taylor, Megan Taylor (current Secretary but standing down from that role) and Alexandra Wright.


Other Nominations  

We very much welcome further nominations for the committee. Nominees need to have a proposer and seconder (which we should be able to assist with if needed). They also need to be an OFC member of course, but could join in advance of the AGM if they are keen to get involved. Please get nominations back to us ([email protected]) by Friday 22nd October 2021 just in case there is a need for a vote.
