13th September 2018

Dear Members

As you are aware our Development Committee has been working hard to bring to the members a potential solution to future proofing Medway Yacht Club for many years.

It is important that as current members we look to ensure that the club we pass onto younger members is fit for purpose and a club they will be proud to take forward themselves.

Therefore in line with Club Rule 8.5;

‘A Special General Meeting of the Club may at any time be called by the Management Committee, upon giving not less than 28 clear days’ notice in writing, for any special business the nature of which shall be stated in the summons convening the meeting, and the discussion at such meeting shall be confined to the business stated in the notice which shall be posted on the Club notice board and website and circulated to members.’

Notice is hereby given that a Special General Meeting is to be held at Medway Yacht Club at 10am on Saturday 20th October 2018, in the main club house.

The business to be discussed and voted upon at this Special General Meeting is;

The following rules, amongst others, apply;

8.8. Attendance at any Special or Annual General Meeting of the Club shall be restricted to Life, Veteran and Single Members and Family Members including not more than two adult representatives over the age of 18 from each Family membership.  All members entitled to attend shall be entitled to one vote save that in the case Family members they are limited to one vote per family unit and not per Family member; any Family member breaching that rule will be required to leave the meeting.

8.11. The acquisition or disposal of any interest in leasehold or freehold land or the disposal of any substantial asset of the Club (a substantial asset shall mean any asset of historical interest, notwithstanding its monetary value or any other asset which the Management Committee considers to be of substantial value), shall only be made following a decision by an AGM or Special General Meeting where two-thirds of those present have voted in favour of such acquisition or disposal.

Details are available from the club office or via the club website page http://www.medwayyachtclub.com/clubhouse-development/ which is accessibly to members only.
