The Club’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday 13th December 2014 at 11.00 a.m. in the clubrooms, McClelland Drive, Frankston. This is your Club and therefore all members are encouraged to attend. In accordance with the Club’s constitution, there will be an election of office bearers and committee members as follows:
The Secretary, Vice-President and four committee members are required to stand down or nominate for re-election for a further two year term. Office bearers are required to be financial members of the Victorian Canine Association Inc. and required to remain so during their term in office.
