ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2020

As noted on the AGM calling notice, with meetings in person not possible, we are going to attempt an AGM by video conference (ZOOM), at the revised time of 1500 on Thursday 29 October 2020.

The committee will have just met by the same method, and so can form the core of the membership, but any member who wishes to participate in this manner is asked to let the Secretary know as soon as possible, and no later than 9 October 2020, so that the appropriate arrangements can be made based upon the declared number of attendees.

GUEST NIGHTS – GUIDANCE FOR MEMBERS

The Committee is mindful of the fact that fellow officers have been seeking guidance from the Secretary about those they are considering inviting as their guests to Club dinners; accordingly the Committee has approved the following guidance for the use of members.

The primary principle is to maintain the ethos of the Club and avoid endangering or disturbing the welfare, good feeling, honour or conviviality of Club occasions.

No one eligible for membership may normally be a guest except as provided for in Rule I.

Members may not normally invite more than two guests each. Members wishing to invite more than two guests should consult the Secretary who may admit them at his discretion. When a capacity attendance is expected the Committee may restrict members to one guest each.

Guests may be of either gender and should normally be professional colleagues or persons who would benefit from exposure to the Royal Navy Club. These latter should not be spouses or partners unless they rightly belong to the former categories; except for the June Dinner, when spouses and partners are warmly welcome.

The Founders’ Day dinner will continue to be for members only.

CLUB BANKING

The Club banks with Holts Military bank, account details of which are on the reverse of the dinner card posted to members annually in September.

Members wishing to pay dinner charges online are reminded that the reference to be used for such transactions is their name, initials and the month(s) of the relevant dinner(s)
