Amended AGM information

Kia ora koutou Capital swimmers and families,

On 27 July the Capital Swimming Club gave notice of its 2020 Annual General Meeting to be held on Sunday 30 August at The Hub, commencing at 2pm. The notice was incorrect.

We called for nominations for two board vacancies that are up for election at this year’s AGM, however the Club is looking for four board members. Two board members resigned earlier this year, and were not replaced, and under the Capital Swimming Club Constitution, the two longest serving elected board members also have to retire at each AGM.

This means the club is looking to elect four board members at this years AGM.

As mentioned in our email on 27 July, nominations must be presented to the Club in writing at least 28 days before the AGM (by Sunday 2 August).

Nominations can also be made from the floor at the AGM if insufficient nominations are received by 2 August. If there are insufficient nominations to fill the minimum number of board seats as specified under the Capital Swimming Club’s Constitution at the AGM, the AGM will have to be adjourned.

Under the Capital Swimming Club Rules, Rules, the Board has to have at least five members to meet as a board; in addition, at least four elected members of the Board must be parents /caregivers of swimmers, or swimmers over the age of 18 in order for the Board to meet. The Board currently has three such members, including the two longest serving members standing down at the AGM.

Those who are interested in standing for election to the board as a board member must be members of Capital and only members can nominate and second candidates.
