The Mid Cornwall Beacon and Repeater Group
Calling Notice for committee nominations and notification.
of the date of an online AGM to be held on Saturday 21st
November 2020 at 3pm

We are unable to hold a normal AGM this year because of the current restrictions on
public meetings.
We have decided to hold an on-line event with questions and feedback from members
via GB3NC, in much the same way as the round-up is conducted every Sunday after the
RSGB News.
Our Constitution requires us to give at least three weeks notice of an AGM and call for
nominations to the committee. Those nominating and those proposed must be full
members of the group (i.e. must have paid the full membership fee of £15 since the.
1st October 2019).


Please send your nomination for any committee position to the current secretary John
Newman, G0VDU by email g0vdu@yahoo.co.uk before the end of October.
The AGM meeting reports will be relayed on a special YouTube channel to be set up
by Andrew, M1DNS and only available to our supporters and members. Questions
from members will be taken via GB3NC using a system similar to the weekly “call in”
after the RSGB News.


Echolink access to GB3NC will not be available during the AGM .
More details about the YouTube channel will be given closer to the event.
The meeting agenda is as per the constitution.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the running of the group over the last
year. Many people give up hours of their time to help keep things going. Technically,
most of the current committee should be retiring at the AGM, so we are asking for new
nominations to be put forward. John Newman, G0VDU, our Group Secretary has
given notice that he will resign from the committee at this AGM.
John has been a long standing member of the Group and has held several committee
positions over many years. We would like to thank him for all the hard work he has
done keeping the group and our repeaters working. John feels he wants to hand over
the reins to someone younger.
Keith Holland G3MCD Group Treasurer and Temp. Chair
