Muddbunnies Riding Club AGM – Feb 1st

Bunny Elections at the Annual General Meeting!

As most of you know, the Muddbunnies Club has continued to  grow year after year.  Last year was our fourth year with an elected board of executives.  Your board members for the 2011 year were,  Jennifer Clarke, Jaclyn Delacroix, Aimee Dunn, Dorothy Luebke, Susan Sheldon, Jenny-Lee Silver, and Diana Walker. For the past year these fine folks have all worked together to complete the necessary tasks for the operation of the club.

Candidates wishing to fill a position will make themselves known one week prior to the AGM and all members attending the AGM will vote for a candidate (spontaneous nominations, however, will be taken). If you are elected, you are required to commit to one year on the board of executives; however, you are elected for two years if you wish to remain on the board.

If you feel that you have what it takes, and want to be involved in club decision making, consider running for one of the available positions at the 2012 AGM. A position on the executive requires your commitment for one year (with the options of staying for two years if you wish) and requires you to attend (on average of) one meeting per month. Please nominate yourself or have somebody nominate you by either sending an email to president@muddbunnies.com or post in the forum (or spontaneously at the AGM).

Even if you aren’t planning on running for a position, please mark your calendar and consider coming to the AGM, showing your support, and make your vote count! Also, the proposed budget is presented by the Treasurer and voted for and adopted at the AGM.  All that aside, it’s a great time to hang out with your fellow bunnies.  In order to vote you must purchase a 2012 membership.  Memberships are now available online and  be available for purchase at the AGM (so come early to get yours).
