The Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the Adamstown New Lambton Athletics Club will be held as follows:
Location: South Newcastle Rugby League Club (46 Llewellyn Road, Merewether)
Date: Tuesday 14th May 2019
ANLAC has been well served by its committee members and we would welcome new members to the committee to ensure the ongoing success of the club. So please come and join us on 14th May and have a say in the success and the future of Adamstown New Lambton Athletics Club.
Who can vote?
Generally speaking each family within ANLAC has the capacity for at least one vote at our meetings. Voting membership is granted to all athletes of ANLAC over the age of 18, one parent or guardian of an athlete registered with ANLAC (where the athlete is less than 18 years of age) and life members with the club are also able to vote. Other individuals are able to become financial members of the club and are hence entitled to vote.
By attending our regular Committee meetings and the Annual General Meeting you will get a say in how ANLAC is run and organised, what we spend our money on and what can be improved. This gives you a voice in the ongoing future of the athletics club that you and/or your child compete at. At the AGM you will also get an opportunity to determine who will be in the positions on the general committee and executive committee for the ongoing management of the club.
