Agenda and Notice for special general meeting 8pm on the 10th August

We have been privileged to have Eric Clarke as our Chairman for the last few years. Unfortunately he has been compelled to resign as Chairman of the South Australian Microprocessor Group.

His outstanding contribution must be applauded. He has performed the Chairman’s role, reworked our website, and shared his electronics and microprocessor expertise with everyone. We have all been personally enriched by association with him, and our group has greatly benefited as well.

As Secretary, I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Eric over this period.

Thank you for generously sharing your time with us.

I am calling a special general meeting for the 10th of August to elect an interim Chairman until our next AGM when all positions will become vacant.

The role of the SAMG Chairman is to;

  1. chair or preside over the committee,  general or special meetings
  2. produce the agendas assisted by the secretary and membership
  3. head the committee in making decisions for the benefit of the group
  4. disciplinary matters and settling disputes amongst membership
  5. lead group in terms of strategic short and longer term planning
  6. manage SAMG affairs by always seeking collaboration
  7. consult and delegate by consensus special roles to committee or the membership

Peter Gheude – Secretary SAMG
31st July 2018

Addendum:  Sadly Eric Clarke passed away on 12-1-2019 and will be dearly missed SAMG Members past and present.
