Just a note to remind everyone that the GLERA annual general meeting is on Tuesday 11thJune. I hope that you can come. We need people from 40 households to be quorate.
The meeting will be to discuss the on going activities that the GLERA Committee have been undertaking on your behalf, discuss any issues that you would like to raise, agree the year’s accounts and elect a new committee, Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.
For various reasons the Committee has been rather depleted in numbers in recent months and I would therefore put out a request for new people to stand as members. It involves 5 or 6 meetings a year, help with distributing flyers and perhaps having an area or issue on which you would like to take a lead.
We also have not had a Secretary for this year as no one was keen to take on the job. There has been discussion about making this a paid rôle and please get in touch at email@example.com you are interested. The duties would be taking minutes at meetings, and helping with correspondence.
What has the GLERA been doing for you in the past year? Successes have been:
Failures have been:
On a personal level I have been in protracted correspondence with City officers, Common Councillors and others every week. I have been to many meetings and have been on Estate walkabouts. With a full time job and a family it's not always easy to fit in but I'm encouraged by the progress we do make as a residents' association, and also the comittment of my fellow GLERA committee members. Do joins us and share the load. The more of us get involved, the less onerous the tasks and the more good we can do for the benefit of our very special neighbourhood.
What time and where will the meeting be?
7pm in the Ralph Perring Centre
Now 7pm downstairs at the Community Centre
