AGM 29th May

The Annual General Meeting of the Hyde Street Youth Band will be held on Wednesday 29th May at 7.00pm. This will replace the Youth Band rehearsal for this night although both the Training and Junior Band rehearsals will be conducted as per normal.

At the AGM, all office bearer positions will be declared vacant and nominations will be accepted for election. It is probably that a number of sitting office bearers will restand for election however the current Secretary, Teesha Melville and President, David Greilach, will not be standing for reelection.

A proposal is also being tabled that will require, if passed, all band families commit to and complete a support role for the band. These roles will include:

  • Office bearer (President, Vice President, Secretary or Treasurer
  • BBQ coordinators x 2
  • Band room cleaning roster x 3 min
  • Wardrobe coordinator
  • Band Managers x 3
  • Event Coordinator
  • Facebook/Team App/Website Manager

This is not a dissimilar situation to what happens at many sports clubs and with the band having now grown to three ensembles, it is felt that it is necessary for all members to share the load if only just a little each.

Position descriptions are being written for all roles and will be made available to members prior to the AGM.

The AGM is your chance to have your say in the direction of the organisation and attendance is requested of all families.
