President's Annual General Meeting Message
Clearly, 2021 has been incredibly challenging for us all, but it’s been particularly so for our club and club rugby in general, with the cancellation of the Shute Shield competition for the first time in over 100 years. To say our players, coaches, volunteers and staff were bitterly disappointed with that outcome was an understatement, as no doubt we all were.
As you would appreciate, operating the club and short-term planning in this environment is still volatile to say the least and a week is a long time in the pandemic. The Club Council has been closely monitoring the situation and the fluid changes to COVID-19 Public Health Order measures/restrictions, to confirm our approach for this year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The Club Council did consider conducting the meeting as a virtual (online) meeting, but based on the current outlook and reduction in lockdown measures, has decided to hold the 2021 AGM in person and in its usual December timing. The year’s meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 15th at Crowne Plaza, Coogee.
However, because of the ongoing uncertainty managing events of this nature at the moment and to minimise any further risks the AGM will be limited to Life Members and current Financial Members only, who are eligible to vote, along with relevant club and venue staff required to conduct the meeting. These eligible groups will be contacted directly via email with the relevant meeting details.
If you have any concerns in relation to the AGM’s approach, please feel free to email me at email@example.com
I thank everyone for their understanding here and ongoing support of Randwick Rugby.
Let’s hope the worst of times are behind us and the best are now ahead.
Up the Wicks!
