Motion: that the minutes are a true and accurate record of the previous Annual General Meeting
There are no matters arising from the previous AGM.
Greig presented a report on our successes in the previous year:
He noted we have not acheived more active participation in administration/direction/general members, and suggests that the 2006 committee should address this. He thanked CraigBox ("Craig's legs have fallen off") and MattBrown ("the Greig award for most enthusiastic and dedicated member of the committee"), as well as the other members of the 2005 committee. Greig ended by telling the meeting that he personally enjoyed the challenge of being on the committee since incorporation, but felt it was time to freshen up and offer some new spaces.
CraigBox presented the results of the 2005 WLUG survey.
Motion: that Rule 7 be amended, replacing "The committee of the society shall include the above named officers, as well as 5 (five) extra members" with "The committee of the society shall include the above named officers, as well as 3 (three) extra members".
Motion: that Rule 6 be amended, replacing "The quorum will be five members of the committee" with "The quorum will be four members of the committee".
Motion: that Rule 6 be amended to remove the sentence "The meeting may not require the general attendance of the society, in the case of most disciplinary meetings, or may require full attendance in the case of a change to the charter or rules of the society.", and that the paragraph "The committee can call a special general meeting by a pass vote at a committee meeting. A member may call a SGM if backed by a majority of the society's membership." be removed and replaced with "The committee can call a special general meeting by the request of any committee member. A member may call a SGM if backed by at least 10% of the society's membership."
