Our virtual AGM closed at midnight 2 February 2017. Thank you to all those members who responded to our notice regarding the eGSSA’s Annual General Meeting and the support we received for the nominations.
Members were invited to participate in the meeting; and as mentioned in the email dated 27 January 2017, we accepted that members from whom we did not hear were satisfied with the management nominations and 2016 Annual report.
ATTENDANCE AT THE VIRTUAL MEETING
Members who selected eGSSA as their primary branch were entitled to participate in the AGM. Our email package keeps track of the number of emails delivered, returned, forwarded and unread and as the virtual branch we use these figures to determine our quorum.
Here follows the summary:
Number of members who received notification of the meeting:
English Members 147 – 62.2 % opened mail
Afrikaans 101 – 58.6 % opened mail
Undelivered notifications: Nil
No additional nominations were received for the management positions; the nominations were also uncontested and the 2017 committee will therefore remain unchanged:
· Alta Griffiths - Chairperson
· Daan Hamman - Vice-Chairman
· Carol Beneke - Treasurer
· Lynn Couperthwaite - Membership Services, communication and marketing
· Richard Ball - Web Services
· Judi Meyer - Editor genesis
· Annelie Els - Stamouers
· Corney Keller - Dutch Transcriptions
· Daan Botes - Post Cards
· Riana le Roux - Cemetery Project
To the team, congratulations! Thank you for making yourself available for another year on the committee.
