Save the Date – 28 June 2021
More details about a significant date – the Blackheath Theatre Company’s Annual General Meeting. The AGM will be held on Monday, 28 June starting at 7pm in the Blackheath Baptist Church, 6 Bundarra Street.
The business of the AGM will cover the following:
- a) to confirm the minutes of the last Annual General Meeting and of any Special General Meeting held since that meeting.
- b) to receive and consider the Treasurer’s Financial Report for the year
- c) to receive from the committee reports upon the activities of the association during the last preceding financial year.
- d) with the resignation of the committee taking effect during the AGM, elections will take place to vote in the new office bearers of the company and ordinary members of the committee.
Additionally, a member wishing to add any other business to the AGM agenda may give notice in writing of that business to the Secretary who will include that business in an updated notice to members before the meeting. Contact detail for the BTC Secretary is Michelle McKenzie email@example.com
Election of new committee
An important note about the election of the office bearers (President, Treasurer and Secretary) and four (4) ordinary members of the committee. Nominations of candidates must be made in writing, signed by two (2) members of the BTC and accompanied by the written consent of the candidate. (A copy of the nomination form is attached). The form must be delivered to the Secretary not less than seven (7) days before the date fixed for the AGM – that is by 21 June.
If it helps, hard copies of the nomination forms are also available at BANC Access, 110 Wentworth Street, Blackheath. Michelle will welcome anyone who wants to pop in to get a form. Further help is that members can drop off their completed hard copies to Michelle.
Who is eligible to vote? Everyone who is a financial member before the date of the AGM. While our constitution adds “and have effectively assisted in some way with at least one production during the preceding twelve (12) months” the committee decided to waive that condition for the years 2020 and 2021 in March last year when we reluctantly had to cancel the entire 2020 production seasons and move them to 2021 due to the Covid-19 outbreak. At the same time the committee announced that the fees paid by members during 2020 would be extended to cover the 2021 year.
Out of the Blue season
Meanwhile rehearsals for our next production, the Out of the Blue season, are in full swing. A line up of six one act plays by local authors never before performed will run for five performances from Thursday 29 July ending with a matinee finale on Sunday 1 August. Remembering how many patrons were disappointed to miss last month’s sell out season More than a Little Black Dress, tickets for the Out of the Blue season are now on sale via Trybooking.com.
