Wow what a month! Floods, Hurricane force winds, Pandemic, Locusts in Africa, Financial crash, and now the shops have run out of toilet rolls.
But never mind a quick blast in your Morgan will wipe all of that misery away, and for me Spring is my favourite time of year when Morganeering really starts.
Our AGM was due on Saturday 18th at The Morgan Motor Company, but has been postponed. Please continue to submit your proxy voting forms. As in recent years all your proxy votes will be recorded so that even if you are unable to attend you will have a say in the resolutions. You can also vote online as I mentioned in my last column.
This will be my last column as Chairman and I have to say it has been a delight to work with such a dedicated bunch, and it is easy to forget what has been achieved, so here are a few of the things that come to mind;
We set up a new leadership structure, we improved our financial position and set in place controls that will reduce risk to the club, we attended more events than ever before whilst controlling expense, we managed our way through the introduction of GDPR regulations with all of our centres, we re-wrote our entire articles of association the documents that state how our club is run, we revamped our magazine, we refreshed our website look and structure, we had a huge presence at the NEC, Appointed a new President, we centralised the organising of MOG events.
This is my 24th and last column as your chairman. A copy of my report to the AGM will be published next month which will cover more detail, but in the meantime, I would like to add that it has been a pleasure to serve the club as chairman for the past 2 years.
My personal thanks to the officers of the club for their support. I would also like to extend a big thanks to all the centre secretaries for all the work they do which is often unseen by many but enables the lifeblood of our centres.
Particular thanks to Colin, my VC for the past two years, and of course to Jayne my wife for her help and understanding for the phone calls that seemed to come in just as dinner was ready.
So, for now it’s time to sign off and I wish you a happy Easter weekend
