In accordance with the Constitution of The Guernsey Private Residential Landlords Association (GPRLA), I hereby give formal notice of our forthcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held at Guernsey Yacht Club, Castle Emplacement, St Peter Port on Monday 20 June 2016, commencing at 8pm. In addition to the formal part of the evening, your Council has arranged for an Open Meeting with a guest speaker prior to the AGM. This part of the evening will commence at 7.30pm sharp. The speaker will be Graham Guille who was deputy minister of Housing during his last term in the States. He will be talking about the current state of housing in Guernsey.
I do hope you will be able to attend both the AGM and the Open Meeting, and help us celebrate our 10th birthday. The evening will also provide an opportunity for Members to meet Council members and to discuss any recent experiences and/or concerns that the GPRLA may be able to address in the forthcoming year. Refreshments will be available.
As always, we are hoping to increase the number of Members to sit on Council. Over the last year, your Council has been meeting monthly, normally on a Monday or Tuesday at 5.30pm. I would be most grateful if Members would seriously consider offering themselves for election. Professional experience is not necessary and it is a great way of learning more about the Association. Should you wish to know more about Council matters, please contact me on 07781 115 585 or Les Bouleaux, Rohais de Bas, St Andrews, Guernsey GY6 8YZ.
Subscriptions are due now for the coming year, June 2016 to end May 2017, and those postal members who do not pay by Standing Order are asked to bring along a cheque for payment of your subscription to the AGM, or post your cheque to Membership Secretary GPRLA, PO Box 295, St Peter Port, Guernsey, GY1 3RU. Subscription is £25 per annum (or £20 for those members who pay by Standing Order). If you pay by standing order or have already paid your subs for the coming year, ignore this.
It is important to keep your contact information with us up to date, particularly your email address if you have one, so if any of your data has changed please let us know via the website or email email@example.com, or phone our Membership Secretary Michele Trott on 07781 192491.
I really look forward to seeing as many Members as possible on the 20 June. Should you have friends or colleagues who you believe may benefit from membership then please feel free to bring them along to the Open Meeting and should they wish to join, membership application forms will be available to complete ahead of the AGM which they are welcome to attend (but not vote until their Membership has been formally accepted).
Any member who wishes to bring an Agenda item at the AGM under Any Other Business must give not less than fourteen clear days’ notice in writing to the GPRLA Secretary: GPRLA, PO Box 295, St. Peter Port, Guernsey, GY1 3RU.
The Agenda for the tenth AGM and Minutes of the ninth AGM held on 22 June 2015 will be available on the Website.
A special item this year is to celebrate our 10th birthday.
