Date of 2010 AGM

Isn't it a bit early to be deciding this? I'd suggest it's left to the Board to call, subject of course to the requirements of the Articles. AndrewRT 13:29, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

I was wary that it would be rather early when I added it into the agenda. However, it might be possible to state a month for the AGM, if there is the desire to do that (e.g. "late february 2010". Alternatively, can't general meetings (note: not AGMs) be more frequent than annual if we want (e.g. 6-monthly)? In the end I put it in there to provoke discussion about it.
At the very least, the next board meeting / first meeting of the new board should be decided on, so that things don't go into limbo after the agm. Mike Peel 22:24, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
We can hold EGM's whenever we like, but I don't see any point in having routine meetings more than once a year - just call extra meetings if there is something specific to deal with. If the next AGM is going to be done as a conference, as has been discussed, then we will need to choose someone to organise it and they should choose a date based on whatever requirements they determine (after discussion with board and membership, of course). --Tango 23:17, 25 December 2008 (UTC)
I agree that we shouldn't hold AGMs more than one per year - that way the Board that's elected knows they have a full year to serve. As Tango said we can have EGMs if we need to, e.g. pass resolutions. Certainly agree to decide the first meeting of the Board, but wouldn't that be a decision for them, rather than for the general meeting? AndrewRT 18:45, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
I would assume the new board would meet immeadiately after the AGM, since presumably they would all be in the same place at the same time, which is a rare occurrence. --Tango 20:06, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
I think it would be a bit of a missed opportunity if they didn't! AndrewRT 12:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
