The 2017 Annual General Meeting


The 2017 Annual General Meeting of Corsham ASC will be held on Sunday 19th November at The Springfield Community Campus, Tippett Room commencing at 5:30pm

This is a very important meeting, so please come along for a say in the future running of your club, plus an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with the Club’s coaching team.

Parents/guardians of swimmers in Widths, TAGS and Juniors are especially encouraged to attend.

The Club runs entirely through volunteers, and whilst not everyone can commit time on a regular basis, we would appreciate your attendance at this short annual meeting for the club to continue to function. Last year we struggled to reach a quorum and had to hold a further meeting. Also, we were perilously close to having to move to close the club down as we struggled to find volunteers to fill key roles on the Executive Committee.

At this meeting, we would like to present an updated Club Constitution which needs to be approved through a vote by those attending the AGM.

An agenda will be published to the club website in due course. Minutes from the 2016 AGM and a draft copy of the proposed Revised Club Constitution is available to read via this link :
