National Committee AGM
Saturday 4 April 2009 saw some 40 delegates representing 12 branches gather in Tarasivka for the National Committee’s Plenum. This is the general meeting which takes place every two years in-between the normal AGM when members are voted onto the National Committee. The following branches were represented at this year’s meeting: Ashton, Bradford, Wolverhampton, Waltham Cross (its first appearance since renewing activities in 2008), Derby, Coventry, Leicester, London, Manchester, Nottingham, Rochdale and Stockport. Absent were Bolton, Gloucester, Carlisle and Todmorden.
The Plenum heard annual reports from the National Committee, the country club “Hospoda”, the Grievance Committee, the Audit Committee and reports from the various branches.
Three workshops were held during the course of the day, brainstorming various aspects of CYM activity - “druzhynnyk” (blue-tie) activities, creating a web-page specifically for educational aids, and raising the competitive bar at the annual National Rally competition – all of which generated lively debates amongst delegates.
Plenum delegates also formally endorsed the country club “Hospoda” committee.
Nottingham branch was singled out for its exemplary educational work and awarded the National Committee’s Flag for this year.
