Winelands: Sixth Annual General Meeting and chapter dinner

Current, paid-up members of the Winelands chapter of Mensa South Africa are invited to the chapter’s sixth ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING on Thursday 8 July at 18h30, in Somerset West.

The meeting will be held at the same venue used for our monthly speaker evenings.

Dinner will be served at the chapter’s expense.

Members will receive a welcoming sherry on arrival, and there will be a cash bar available.

There is no charge to members for attending.

At the meeting, members will have the opportunity to find out and raise questions about the chapter’s operations and finances.

Our constitution provides for a two-year tenure for the chapter’s committee and, since the current committee was elected in 2020, this is a non-election year, although volunteers are encouraged to join the committee.

Members will be asked to:
– accept the annual report (1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021)
– accept the membership report
– accept the financial statements to date.

If you would like to nominate a member to serve on the committee, or to put your own name forward for election, please email the Winelands Secretary.

For catering and access code purposes, please RSVP to the Winelands Secretary.

Members are also encouraged to volunteer to assist the committee in a non-portfolio capacity.

If you are unable to attend the meeting, kindly complete and return a proxy form (obtainable from the Winelands secretary).
