I am so pleased and excited to announce on behalf of the group that we have a new Chair of Out IN Salford in the name of Amy Rose​ who attended tonight’s special general meeting along with her two friends Mark Hunt and Natalie Kheirkhah​ for the very first time

We had a very busy meeting … lots of different ideas and thoughts we considered but I will let my very worthy successor to my former post tell you once she settles in

On behalf of the group as the former Chair, welcome aboard Amy … I hope you enjoy the role as much as I did

See you this Saturday for the next Manchester LGBT Heritage Walk

Regards

Constitution Change

Featured

Out IN Salford

Our Governance Officer would like to ask you a question about the CONSTITUTION

Hi Vic

Out in Salford’s constitution states that the quorum of any general meeting, which includes the AGM should be 15 members of 10% of its membership.

As membership is based upon Facebook membership and many only want to know what’s going on rather than attend meetings, I feel the quorum should be changed to reflect this.

Therefore I am proposing that the quorum for general meetings and the AGM should be not less 8 members or 10% of the membership.

Many Thanks 

Adrian Palmer

Please indicate with feedback what your answer to this would be or attend the AGM on the 15th April 2015

Special General Meeting

IMG_8647

 

In view of the former Chair Vic Hanley’s unexpected departure we could not find a willing successor at the recent AGM, so we are calling an open Special General Meeting for all of you wonderful readers to attend

During this meeting we will also be looking at changing the Constitution which has not been amended since 2012 , this is because we need to amend the rule on quorum ie the amount of attendees at the AGM to allow a vote to becoming a mandate to serve the group as an officer

To attend the meeting you DO NOT need to be a member of the group but to vote you will

The meeting venue is Pendleton Gateway; to find it click here

Out IN Salford

Hello

Just so you are all aware, last night at the Annual General Meeting, I took the difficult decision to resign as your Chair

It is for personal reasons and I wish the group, and more importantly my successor, well

I feel I depart from the role leaving the group in a good state of health. Council funding to September 2015 has been granted and the bank account is in a good state too

There is to be a Special General Meeting scheduled for 20th May at Pendleton Gateway at 7.30pm so if you or you know anyone else who wants to stand for election then please attend this meeting

Kind Regards and All the Best it’s been a blast and I’ve enjoyed my work with you all
