2015 AGM ANNOUNCEMENT – 4 pm, 11 October 2015

Message from President, Sonia Ong

Beloved Alumni and Friends,

If you have not had enough election madness I am pleased to inform you that the Cornell Club AGM and elections is around the corner. 

Unfortunately this also means that I’m writing you with a heavy heart as I pen this message to you. After 9 years in executive roles with the club, 1 year as Restaurant chair, 1 year with Programs and 7 years as President, the time has come to move on.
I have made some wonderful friends and had some excellent experiences running this club and it has brought me much gratification to see many of you year after year come back and share in our love for Cornell.
What all this means is that we are now in need of a new President.

The letter of the secretary calling all to the AGM is appended below with the constitution changes to be discussed next month.

As a member, it is your right to decide how your club should be run in the next decade. You can do so by taking an active role on the Exco or voting on our constitutional changes.
Our AGM takes place Sunday, October 11th, 2015, 4pm.
Reply if you wish to
1. Attend and vote
Make sure that you are current on your dues so that you can run and vote. The location and agenda is attached.
RSVP your attendance by 9 October to Cornellclubsg@gmail.com.
2. Run for President or other role.
Let us know at least one week in advance of the meeting
3. Raise any concerns or additions to the agenda at the AGM. These are to be submitted at least one week in advance of the meeting
Don’t sit on the fence now – this is the AGM that matters 🙂
Meet your new Exco at Zinck’s night that falls on 15 October this year.
It has been my pleasure serving you.
Best regards
Sonia Ong
President 2014/15
