TAPit’s first AGM!
We had 18 folk present all told, but not bad for our first AGM which went very well I think. Bridget Stevens, our Chairperson got us each to introduce ourselves to one another. Then to a wee 10 minute slideshow and accompanying commentary – a potted version of our Annual Report. Our new Board Treasurer, Norman Jamieson gave a brief but clear report. ‘Election of Member Directors’ was the next item on the agenda and prompted a lively discussion on who they are in the scheme of things! Bridget & I did our best to explain that they are Members of TAPit (-as opposed to ‘Users’) who have been voted on to our Board by other Members! ‘Members’ are those who want more of a say in the shaping/running of things & apply to ‘join’ & can then vote at AGM’s etc. Clear as mud? Anyhoo, though we didn’t have any of the Members there jumping at the invitation to nominate themselves or someone, hopefully got across that we do want to give folk that opportunity. We finished up with a wee bit of light relief in the form of a Wordsearch exercise, finding the words which our Stakeholders at the meeting in September last year had listed when asked what they associated with our Clubs and Services. Business over, we turned our attention to the delicious spread of eats and enjoyed the chance to mix and mingle over a glass of wine/juice. Thank you to all who made the effort to join us in passing another milestone in TAPit’s development!
