HISC Spring General Meeting - On-line Open Forum

In view of the uncertainties at present surrounding the re-opening of the Club, we have decided not to proceed with the Spring General Meeting scheduled for Sunday 26 April in the clubhouse.

The SGM is the occasion on which we update members on the Club’s financial performance in the previous year, give an indication of how the year ahead is looking, and review our strategic plan.

But we recognise that what members will be anxious to know more about now are both the financial and membership consequences of the Club’s closure, and what plans we are able to make at this stage for when we can re-open; and we are committed to keeping members as fully informed as possible about this.

So, in place of the SGM, we will on Saturday 16 May at 16:00 be holding an on-line open forum at which the Commodore and Flag Officers will say what they can to put members fully in the picture about how things are looking, and our preliminary thinking about activities, both afloat and ashore, we might be able to run when we reopen.

We will be inviting members to submit questions that we will address at the forum.

Look out for the separate information we will be issuing nearer the time about how to access the forum and how to submit questions.  We hope that as many of you as possible will log in to participate.

We shall defer the formal parts of the SGM to the Annual General Meeting later in the year.  But there is one piece of business we can do now, which is to publish the 2019 Accounts and accompanying Report by the Flag Officer Finance, Mike Massey.
