The Annual General Meeting of the Market Harborough WI was held via Zoom on Wednesday night. Due to the restrictions on in-person meetings voting had to be done online – a new experience, but a successful excercise with the help of Doodle Polls. Links were sent to the members ahead of the meeting, so everyone had the opportunity to vote even if they could not attend.
The members unanimously approved the annual report and treasurer’s report. They also agreed to postpone the committee meeting elections (usually held as part of the AGM) to the end of the extended membership year. In March 2021 we are hoping to be able to hold elections and facilitate an in-person handover from outgoing members to the new team.
The rest of the evening was spent with a fun filled quiz by the MHWI’s favourite Quiz Master, James Hunt, who outdid himself with obscure questions and brain teasers on a variety of subjects. And to round things off three prizes were raffled off – winners were drawn from the complete members list.
Congratulations to the winners of the evening and here is to the next six months of fun and learning at the MHWI!
