A small not for profit organisation working with the community to improve the lives of the people in Acharacle and surrounding district
Our annual AGM is being amalgamated with an EGM this year and is on Wednesday 13th December 2017 at the Community Centre, MacNaughton Crescent, commencing at 7:00pm.
There are 2 purposes to this meeting:
We will be reviewing the accounts for the year April 2016 to March 2017 at the meeting. A full set of the accounts is available to view at the office at the centre, or they can be emailed out on request.
Co-opted directors are to stand down and be re-elected, and any proposed new directors duly elected.
2 Special Resolution
The Company has been running the Community Centre under a lease with the Highland Council for the last 5 years. This comes to an end the week before the AGM (i.e. 7th December 2017). The Highland Council will consider a transfer of the building to the Community Company to keep the centre open if that is what is wanted. A survey was carried out this September to try to gauge support for keeping the centre open. Over 93% of the respondents wanted to see the centre remain open if it is viable to do so. However, we need to know that our members are in support of the proposal in order to take this process any further.
The special resolution which will be voted on at the meeting is:
“Acharacle Community Company members want the board and members of a steering group specially set up for the purpose to carry forward the process of asset transfer of the centre from the Highland Council to the Acharacle Community Company”.
We will be discussing other future projects that the Company want to see come to fruition at the meeting too, so please try to attend. If there are any matters you would like to raise at the meeting, whether you can attend or not, please let us know 7days before the meeting.
If you would like to vote on the special resolution but cannot attend the meeting, another member who can attend can be appointed as proxy to vote on your behalf. In order to do this please get in touch at least 7 days before the meeting to arrange it.
Also, if you wish to enquire about use of the Community Centre, please contact Lesley MacMaster, Centre co-ordinator by telephone at 01967 431 411 or by email at email@example.com
