Thank you to all the members who attended our AGM on 21 July, it was the best turnout in many years. The proposal to change the wording of the Constitution, 11.1 to remove the word Auditor and replace it with Reviewer, was agreed and passed. The Constitution is now with the lawyer to be checkedas a number of alterations over the years have rendered it difficult to read. A number of suggestions were made at the AGM and the committee will consider these, and otherideas,over the next months. The AGM saw the current committee increased by two members (Jeanie was co-opted earlier in the year) as all were standing and the maximum number of nine had not been reached.

The RAS committee for the coming year:

President:Margaret Stephenson

Secretary: Pip Dobson

Treasurer: Jan Campbell

Committee: Carmen Smart, Russell Hobbs, Suzanne Roberts, Jeanie Taylor and Annie Guise.We continue to seek someone to work with us to understudy the role of Treasurer as Jan will need to stand down from that role next year. Jan will continue on the committee.
