- Financial report
- Adoption of auditor’s report on financial affairs
- Election of Management Committee
- Appointment of Auditor

In recent years the AGM was held at JRM Auto Garage, Southport. This year the AGM will be held concurrent with the Club's Dirt Day. As usual it will be accompanied by a BBQ lunch.

In accordance with the Club’s Constitution, all Committee members come to the end of their term at the AGM and are eligible for re-election. Any financial member of the Club is also eligible for nomination. At present some Committee members are covering multiple roles and expressions of interest to come onto the Committee and help plan the Club’s affairs are welcomed from anyone who is keen to assist.

The committee ordinarily consists of the following roles:
- President
- Vice-president
- Secretary
- Treasurer
- Membership Officer
- Merchandise Officer (position currently vacant)
- IT Officer
- Motorsport Officer
- Social co-ordinator

Our long standing treasurer, Steph Muston, and her partner, Alan Weinert (membership & motorsport), have indicated that they will not be standing for re-election. So we are especially keen to hear from anyone who might be interested in filling these roles. Steph and Alan have kindly offered to stay on as deputies in these roles, to assist the transition to new committee members.

Deputy positions can also be created so that you can get to know the ropes.

Rule 12.3 requires that two members nominate any person wishing to stand for election in writing prior to 14 days before the AGM and the person nominated to accept the nomination. If no nominations are received for any position, we can accept nominations on the day of the AGM. As always, we’re very keen to have whatever help we can get. If you’d like to have an informal chat about the possibility of being involved and what that is likely to entail please get in touch.

Please RSVP for catering purposes.
