PRESIDENT’S REPORT March 2024
This report comes on the eve of the Annual General Meeting to be held on Tuesday March 12th. Please note that for one month only, the Monthly General Meeting will start at 7.30, NOT 8.00, and the Annual General Meeting will follow immediately after the end of the MGM.
All AGMs are important, but this one is particularly so.
After 18 years of great service to the Club, Ed Ordynski has decided to retire from the position of Patron and he will be farewelled at the AGM. Ed has been a wonderful ambassador and inspiration for the Club for a record term and I am sure many members will wish to come along and add their thanks to him.
Ed’s replacement as Patron will also be announced at the AGM. The Committee is confident that this person will be a worthy successor to Ed and all past Patrons and will demonstrate the leadership we expect from our Patron. This is a person well-known to many Club members who has an outstanding reputation and I am confident the Committee has made the right choice.
Speaking of the Committee, I would like to take this opportunity, halfway through my two-year term, to thank everyone who has served on the Committee in whatever role for the past year. It’s been a year when we have hosted the National Meeting, celebrated MG’s centenary, updated our constitution, made a fresh commitment to motorsport, and many other achievements. Through it all, the Committee members have all worked well together as a team – without that approach we could not have achieved what we have.
At the AGM there will be an election for four Committee positions and as I write this there are six nominees, so we may see a change in the composition of the Committee after that meeting. No matter what the outcome, I reiterate my thanks to every member of the 2023 Committee and I’m looking forward to working with the Committee team in my second year as President.
Stephen Marlow, President.
