County AGM

Dear Scouter


The Annual General Meeting of the Lincolnshire County Scout Council will take place in the same venue as last year - the Sleaford New Life Conference and Events Centre, Mareham Lane, Sleaford, NG34 7JP on Friday 29th September 2017, 7.30 pm for 7.45pm. All are invited to attend. 

Nominations are invited for the following positions. These nominations should reach the County Secretary before 25th August 2017 in writing or via email

a.  County Treasurer 

b.  Lincolnshire County Scout Executive Committee members for 2017/18

c.  Young representatives (18 - 25 years of age) to the Lincolnshire County Scout  

     Executive Committee for 2017/18

May I remind you that nominees for the County Executive Committee do not have to be current members of the Scout Association; however as Executive members they will be Trustees of the County and must be willing to take Associate Scout membership (or full membership), complete a DBS and sign a Trustee form. 

They should also be willing to take on specific roles to assist the County Chairman, and the County Executive Committee. As a member of the Executive, in addition to the 4/5 Executive meetings per annum, nominees should be prepared to sit on one of the sub-committees that the County Executive are responsible for.  

Self nomination is not acceptable. 

If the number of nominations for Executive Members exceeds the places available, voting papers will be circulated, prior to the meeting, to those who hold roles that give them the right to vote, as per POR.

The formal agenda and minutes of the 2016 AGM will be circulated at the meeting. 

Our speaker this year will be Mr Tim Kidd, UK Chief Commissioner.

Please note there will be no bar facilities available at the meeting; however Tea/Coffee will be available prior to the meeting.

Any business items that you wish to raise MUST be notified to Mrs Shirley Burt, County Secretary, in writing, at least 48 hours before the meeting.

Finally, as always – for catering purposes, please advise me if you will be attending the AGM before 10th  September. If you have any dietary requirements please let me know when booking in.

Yours in Scouting

S C Burt (Mrs)

County Secretary
