Annual General Meeting (AGM)
The N Gauge Society Annual General Meeting is held not later than 31st July each year for the presentation of reports from the Committee, and discussion and decisions on any proposals put forward by members.
Officers and other appointments are elected for the following year. These formal activities are as outlined in our Constitution and Byelaws.
To give members a little more inspiration, we also organise an exhibition and an Annual Model Making Competition (AMMC) on the same day, making the event a great day of N gauge modelling.
While the competition is only open the NGS members, the exhibition is usually open to the public.
Note that the exhibition normally precedes the AGM and therefore closes early in the afternoon.
The 2018 Annual General Meeting of the N Gauge Society will be held on
on Saturday 21st July 2018 commencing at 2.30pm.
Members seeking election to the Committee of the Society shall state their intention to do so in writing to the Returning Officer, who shall be a Vice President nominated by the Committee (Mr Ben Ando whose email address is: email@example.com), or alternatively to myself as detailed in the N Gauge Society Journal by Tuesday 1st May 2018, following which he/she shall secure a proposer and seconder and submit a short autobiography on the proforma provided. In the interests of continuity the posts of Chairman, General Secretary and Treasurer should ideally be filled by a member with very recent Committee experience.
