#381898 Committee In Discord Again

Posted by philshelton on 14 March 2018 - 10:01 PM

We are not a business Phil, but we need to operate in a business like manner as we are collectively in charge of members money ---- they are the share holders & the management has to serve them what they want or they will vote , not at the AGM, but with their feet & wallet .   What has been done in the last several years has not increased membership, it is down to less than 200. Why, I don't know for sure but a reduction in expenses could be a step in the right direction.
The club has had a balance ( profit or surplus call it what you will ) for many years--- £13,000 at 2014 how much tax did we pay?

I would have to say a reduction in expenses would just increase the what do I get for my money call and increase the fall in membership if you want to increase membership you have to offer something. What can be offered in this time of internet mass of information for nothing I don’t know. The club lacks a persance on social media the likes for Twitter instagram and Facebook should be exploited, whilst our older members don’t like ore use these the young members do

Bob you cause more friction than input as I there for wish to propose that due to your inabilities to work with in a committee a vote of no confidence in you as a member of the club committee and that you should be bared from ever standing again

Your analogy makes interesting reading --- no more ---- truth is the best brake of all. I try to represent the members not cosy up to the committee ( which is difficult to do without knowing where & when the meetings take place.

Bob you are the problem and I can say this now from the out side looking in, I am now just a member so have no gain by saying you are the cause of discord with in the committee

The actions of others, which was questioned by me was the cause, I didn't create the problem. I arrived late because we had just finished the Welsh Run with SKCC, the gazebo was looking a little sorry; you & Chris stated the gazebo was sold & you stated Mark also agreed.


Memory is selective Phil, one remembers what one wishes to.

Bob at the end of the day you you are the only committee  rhocar member to cause 4 committee members to resign

The hassle Phil, is caused by the secretive actions of most of the present committee, as stated by Stuart & Richard -- they preferred to conduct committee business "off forum"

My role, for which I was re-elected by majority at 2017 AGM; is to represent the members by asking questions & offering opinions which sometimes may (probably be0 at odds with the others. But it is our duty to suggest alternatives, not just go with the flow for an easy life.

As I have said before --- exclusion for what-ever reason leads to dictatorship , & must be against members benefit.  

Bob you have to look at your self and ask why do the rest of the committee want to work without me ? in 2013 this situation arises  from 2014 to 2017 committee and the club ran with no problems or friction other than brake pads on discs when out on a run. now again not 12 months from you being re elected on to commit  we have more friction than a set of brakes on as 16 wheeler can produce going down an alpine pass

There's freedom of speech and there's making a mountain out of a mole hill.

I'm sure someone can arrange for you to get your £20 back and you can leave us old fogies to our old-fashioned ways, which we are all perfectly happy with...

as much as I see your sentiments Nelmo this is a member who has a grievance and we should talk through things. Maybe the way forward is a rolling membership

I believe bob that the gazebo was sold as it nearly caused injury to a baby and young mother when one of the support arms fell of. As a member of the committee you would of also sanctioned the replacement of this item as it was likely to cause injury to members or worse still members of the general public./ You also agreed the sale of the old item and the only issue you have is the chasing of payment. You Bob want the club to run as a business not a club and as such the club would have to pay corporation tax as it would be making a profit. The under lying fact is that on the 2 times you have been involved at the heart of this club on committee you have caused the resignation of committee members as you are impossible to work with, this is the fact and always will be. As a club member you are a great person I can say this having spent 2 weeks in france with you on the Rhocar trip to the somme, at events you help out and support the club massively, but as a member of the club committee you just create friction aggravation and resignations.

So out of these have you received nominations for all the roles to be covered after May  as per CMA post above?

I doubt it its hard to get volunteers, even harder if they know they will be working in a committee with so much friction. Having worked with someone of this committee prior to the current chairman, the fires of hell and promise of sure death would not get me to stand for a post and work in the committee with such friction.

Mental health is a massive issue. Having a daughter who has been a victim of anorexia, lost a great friend and club member and knowing of at least 3 other members who have suffered illness of the mind, it has little physical presence except to those closest. Is there anything we as a club can do to raise awareness and funds to support those who are in the darkest of places. Your thoughts and ideas please, to get things rolling how about a round the uk relay tour.
