I am writing to you to let you know of some major updates and changes to the Scottish Rat Club. Please take some time to properly read this mail, as some of the information is important to the future of the club.

Some of you may be aware that the entire committee of the Scottish Rat Club as voted in at the 2014 AGM (and later the 2014 EGM) have now resigned. The outgoing committee agreed to coopt me before their resignations were effective, so I am now caretaking the club at the moment until it can be handed over to a new elected committee at the next AGM.

Our planned show for June 20th, has now been cancelled due to a lack of volunteers available to take show positions.

The next SRC event will be on 11th July, at the Scout Hall, Oldhall Road, Paisley, PA1 3HN. This will be the SRC AGM, and held alongside the WSRS EGM. There will be no show on this occasion. More specific details regarding timing etc. will be sent out closer to the time.

If you wish to stand for an SRC committee position, you need to email me before June 6th 2015 on toyah@scottishratclub.co.uk to let me know what position you wish to stand for. The committee positions available are:
Chair
Honorary Secretary
Treasurer
Membership Secretary
Show Secretary
General Committee Member x 4

If you wish to submit a proposal at the AGM (proposals are normally: rule changes, suggestions for major changes to the running of the club, life memberships, or other business that members feel should be decided by the members rather than a simple committee decision) then please respond to me and let me know so I can add it to the agenda. The deadline for these are also June 6th 2015.



REGARDING MEMBERSHIP TERMS

This notification has been sent to everyone listed as a Scottish Rat Club member in the information I have received from the outgoing committee.

If your membership is due for renewal, or overdue for renewal, you can renew in person at the AGM or online afterwards. You will be treated as a current SRC member and be able to stand for committee, submit proposals, and vote at the AGM.

If you have paid for membership but not received the benefits of membership, please contact me so we can discuss resolution of this. In the meantime, you will be treated as a current SRC member and be able to stand for committee, submit proposals, and vote at the AGM.

If your membership has lapsed, or you are otherwise are not a member for whatever reason but wish to be a member, let me know so I have your details. In the meantime, you will be treated as a current SRC member and be able to stand for committee, submit proposals, and vote at the AGM.

Please forward this to anyone you know who may wish to join the Scottish Rat Club, so that they can contact me and have the opportunity to put forward proposals, stand for committee, and vote at the AGM.

Thank you,
