The Club’s 2017 Annual General Meeting was held at Chancellors Hotel in Manchester on 1st October and was attended approximately by 40 Members. Presentations were made by the Chairman of the Committee, the Club Managers and the Resorts Manager. All Committee Members and other advisers to the Club were in attendance. At every AGM, in accordance with the Club Constitution, two members of the Committee stand down from their posts having come to the end of their elected 3-year term. This year the two members of the Committee standing down were Margaret Main and Stuart Mackenzie. Both had decided not to stand again, so did not offer themselves for re-election. During the meeting thanks were offered to both Margaret and Stuart for their valuable contributions to the Crown Resorts’ Committee during the past twelve years and three years respectively. As no applications were received from other Club members wishing to be candidates for Committee membership, it was announced that with effect from the close of the AGM the Club will be run (at least initially) with a reduced number of elected committee members.  It was stated that although the committee is confident that the four members remaining have the breadth of business skills and experience to ensure that this will be achievable, we would welcome up to two additional members of the Club volunteering to be co-opted to help with the work of the committee.  The Chairman went on to encourage any members attending the AGM, who might be interested in becoming involved, to make themselves known at the end of the meeting.  We are pleased to announce that two members did express interest and we are making progress in co-opting them onto the committee until next year’s AGM, at which stage they will be free to stand for election in the usual manner (and members will have the opportunity to cast their votes).
