WEST WESSEX GROUP, THE MOTOR CARAVANNERS’ CLUB
Minutes of MEMBERS MEETING following 44th ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
SUNDAY 28th OCTOBER 2018 at CHRISTCHURCH JUNIOR SCHOOL
a) Lewis-Manning Hospice, proposed by Mike Humphreys, seconded by Maria Pond.
b) SERV Wessex, proposed by Gill Horder, seconded by Dave McCaughey, supported by Kat Gallagher.
Information about both Charities had been circulated. The Chairman asked for any nominations from the floor. There were none. A vote by show of hands was taken and SERV Wessex was chosen by majority.
3 The Chairman requested a discussion about Rally Plaques. He gave three reasons for discontinuing them:
a) It involved a lot of work for the Secretary
b). We ought to think of unnecessary use of plastic
4 Maurice Brooks from the Council of Management had asked to address the floor. After introducing himself, he drew our attention to the National Rally 2019, the new price- structuring, the pre-National at Banham Zoo and post-National at Hunstanton. These need to be well supported otherwise future Nationals will be in jeopardy, including a future 60th Anniversary National at Malvern in 2021. His second matter concerned the effect of new Data Privacy regulations (GDPR) which will be affecting the Club as it is a limited company. He pointed out that members will be given a chance to opt out of the Club holding any information about them, which would result in us not receiving Magazines or emails and that Group Secretaries would no longer have contact details for their Group members. Members who don’t opt out would be deemed to be in and could continue as before. He asked that we think carefully about this when the time comes.
5 Jerry Dain proposed a vote of thanks to the Committee and Helpers for all their hard work throughout this past year, and this received a round of applause.
There being no further business, the meeting was closed at 11.20am.
Many thanks to Ann Curwain and Maggie Mills for the refreshments during the Interval.
