EGM Thursday 30th November

Postby DiarmuidM » Tue Nov 21, 2017 3:01 pm

Anderson Lecture Theatre, 7pm.

We're holding an EGM to decide who'll be our new Training Officer and Treasurer. If you're going to go for training officer, you'll need to make a short speech, outlining your plan for the next semester. We're also accepting motions to amend or add club rules.

Any nominations or motions can be posted below or emailed to committee@nuigkc.com

We're also looking for a new First Year Rep

Motions:

Allow people to run for a semester for the positions of captain, training and treasurer at the AGM. This would reduce the need for EGMs in the middle of the year and would encourage older members to take up committee positions, who might otherwise decide not to because of placements. (Laoise)
Amendment: Captain must serve for the full college year.
Amendment: Every position bar Captain is eligible for this motion.
Passed unanimously.

To only be allowed present motions if you're a current student or are in your year's grace. (Rob)
Not seconded

The motions about equipment aren't really motions, they are committee, and Equipment Officer, decisions, so they won't be presented.

Ronan was banned for breaking the rule of running grade 4 whitewater in club gear. We are not repealing this ban. He knew what he was doing was not allowed and to let him off would set an awful precedent of rules only applying to some and not to others. The fact that he was on the committee for multiple years, including the position of Safety Officer, means that he should have known better.

Nominations:

(Nominations for Training Officer need to be put in before the night, FYR and Treasurer can be put forward at the EGM)

Training: Henry

FYR: Valentin, James

Treasurer: Tiernan :emo:

Motion: remove Ronan's ban.
Also if you're really desperate and don't get any other nominations I'll go for treasurer.
Tiernan :-o

You're supposed to give the sports office ~4 weeks notice of an EGM, so you might want to make a decision about the date

Second this, maybe look to buy another small creeker too? Also while on the subject of gear, we need to sort out the bungs, they keep disappearing. May not be an EGM problem though...

Second this, but maybe make sure that we have someone willing to take their place so we aren't desperately begging people to fill the position.
Tiernan :-o

Motion: Sell the unused sea kayaks and buy more surf boats. The sea kayaks only get used once a year max where the surf boats have been used several times this semester .

Motion: To only be aloud present motions if your a current student or in your years grace.

I only proposed the motion and it does not need to be presented only seconded .As to your sea kayaks never get used
aine and some other people use the sea kayaks on a regular baises .if anything the club need to put more money into the upkeep of the gear they have before buying new gear and not using it and maybe run a few more sea kayaking trips etc .
How many club trips etc have the surf boats been used on .
also there is no surfing at varsity's unless you want to enter long distance in a surf boat with bubble wrap still attached .
As regards the current student and years grace in the club topic ,if you don't like the motion don't vote for it !.
Its called freedom of speech deal with it ! ;-)
