Update following the SGM
South Glamorgan Centre – The Caravan and Motorhome Club
Regarding the committee posts, all of the serving members agreed to stay in post until the A.G.M.
During the meeting I laid out the options open to the Centre, which are to either go into Hibernation after the A.G.M. on 10th December, or to further investigate the possibility of “Merging” with another Centre. The option to continue on “as we are” was not felt to be sustainable and was not supported by the meeting.
There was an open and frank discussion around why the Centre is in this situation, with many questions being asked and suggestions made by the members present. The answers provided by the Committee led to the overwhelming support being given, for the committee to further explore the option of a Merger.
Informal discussions have taken place over recent months, but since the S.G.M. a formal request has been made to the Gwent Centre to commence talks. This has been sent, acknowledged and we await their formal response.
The current plan is to run the South Glamorgan Centre into next year at a reduced level, so only a few rallies, no Rally Book being published and no planning for after the 2020 A.G.M. This will allow the potentially smaller committee to concentrate on the Merger Discussions.
Clearly the final decision to Merge with the Gwent Centre will depend on the membership of both Centres agreeing to the Merger. If that cannot be achieved, then sadly the committee believe that the South Glamorgan Centre will cease operating at the 2020 A.G.M.
