New Company Secretary
A reply to an email to Cliub Office today seeking confirmation a copy of the formal Notice of the General Meeting called by seven Council Members on Thursday 11th March 2021 had been posted promptly on the Club website brought a very brief and unhelpful reply from a new Company Secretary for the Club - Edward Vandyk.

As you have noted the contents of the email would you please let me know why the Notice has not been posted promptly on the Club’s Website and included in the copy for the April issue of the Club magazine?

Lauran and Gemma,
We are very concerned that we have had no confirmation from you that a copy of the formal notice of the General Meeting we called on Thursday 11th March 2021 has been posted on the Club website to provide proper notice of the meeting to all Members. We also required a copy to be published in the April 2021 issue of Safety Fast! I would urge you to recognise that proper notice must be given as required by company law and the Club’s Articles. It’s now a week since our formal call was made. Please confirm by return the Notice will be posted on the Club website today and a copy included in the April issue of the Club magazine. A PDF copy is attached.

Importance: High

Lauran & Gemma,
During a call with Keith Williams this morning, Howard Gosling was given the confirmation that Keith has accepted the General Meeting we, as a group of Council Members, called early yesterday morning “will go forward on our date and that he will give the information (we) sent to the Company Secretary to Andy to put in the forthcoming Safety Fast! as well as on the Club Website”.

I have sent a copy of the formal Notice of the General Meeting to Andy. I understand that you both maintain the Club website so could you please post the formal Notice of the General Meeting there promptly today as it is essential to ensure the necessary period of notice is given to all Club members of the General Meeting as they are entitled to attend such meetings although only Voting Members representing their CRBs can vote at those meetings. We will be releasing details of the arrangements we are making for that online meeting in the next few days. I attach a copy of that Notice as a PDF as produced and released yesterday by the group of Council Members who had originally requisitioned the General Meeting.

I am not sure who is the Club’s Company Secretary at present or covering that role but please pass a copy of this email and attachment to them.

Regards,
Victor Smith
Chairman and Council Member for the V8 Register
