The 23rd AGM
Notice is hereby given that the 23rd Annual General Meeting of The C Users' Group (UK) publicly known as ACCU will be held at 13:00 on Saturday 16th April 2011 at the Oxford Barceló Hotel, (formerly the Oxford Paramount Hotel), Godstow Road, Oxford OX2 8AL, United Kingdom.
- Apologies for absence
- Minutes of the 22nd Annual General Meeting
- Annual reports of the officers
- Accounts for the year ending 31st December 2010
- Election of Auditor
- Election of Officers and Committee
- Other motions for which notice has been given
- Any other Annual General Meeting Business (To be notified to the Chair prior to the commencement of the Meeting)
The attention of attendees under a Corporate Membership is drawn to Rule 7.8 of the Constitution:
'... Voting by Corporate bodies is limited to a maximum of four individuals from that body. The identities of Corporate voting and non-voting individuals must be made known to the Chair before commencing the business of the Meeting. All individuals present under a Corporate Membership have speaking rights.'
Also, all members should note rules 7.5:
'Notices of Motion, duly proposed and seconded, must be lodged with the Secretary at least 14 days prior to the General Meeting.'
'Nominations for Officers and Committee members, duly proposed, seconded and accepted, shall be lodged with the Secretary at least 14 days prior to the General Meeting.'
'In addition to written nominations for a position, nominations may be taken from the floor at the General Meeting. In the event of there being more nominations than there are positions to fill, candidates shall be elected by simple majority of those Members present and voting. The presiding Member shall have a casting vote.'
For historical and logistical reasons, the date and venue is that of the last day of the ACCU Spring Conference. Please note that you do not need to be attending the conference to attend the AGM.
(For more information about the conference, please see the conference web page at https://accu.org/faq/conference/)
More details, including any more motions, will be announced later. A full list of motions and electoral candidates will be supplied at the meeting itself. We currently expect constitutional motions regarding a widening of the aims of the society as stated in the constitution to cover software development as a whole rather than just C and C++, and for the creation of a new officer's post, to be elected every two years, to be responsible to the committee (and thus to the society as a whole) for the organisation of the conferences.
Please also note that both I, as Secretary, and Stewart Brodie, as Treasurer, wish to step down from our posts. We've both been doing this for far too long (in my case, for a whole decade, and Stewart isn't far behind). So if anyone considers that they could stand for either position, please let either me (as email@example.com) or Hubert Matthews (firstname.lastname@example.org) know.
