Calling Notice   for the Annual General Meeting
to be held on Wednesday 29th March from 09:30.

Format of the Annual General Meeting

In order for the Jávea U3A to abide by the Spanish Laws governing such meetings, the Committee have decided to adopt the following approach for the AGM:

At 10:30, the President  will call to order the first convening and if there are not a minimum of one third of the Membership present (404), then the President will announce a 30 minute delay as required by law.

(As the hall is not large enough to hold 404 people and we have never ever had that many people at a meeting, there is almost certain to be a 30 minute delay.)

At 11:00, the President  will call the second convening, and this, by law, can take place without a third of the Members being present.

The AGM will then proceed.

(The net result is that the meeting will start at 11:00 as our meetings normally do.)

In the unlikely event that 405 of our members somehow manage to squeeze themselves into the hall by 10:30, the President  will then spend the next 30 minutes counting them (to be sure!) and the meeting will start there after (probably at 11:00). Hope this all makes sense . . . to somebody . . . somewhere!!!

Membership Renewals

Those Members that have not renewed their Membership should do so at the Meeting.

The renewal fee is €5.

There will be volunteers on hand to deal with renewals as well as the enrolment of new members. The desks will open at 09:30 & close promptly at 10:30.
