Ulysses Club Inc
Wagga Wagga Branch
Leader 8 April 2020
With no riding and no socialising we do not have any local input. Following is the latest from Head Office.
The National Committee held their scheduled meeting on Saturday 4th April, opting to meet by video conference. As well as the regular meeting items – the presentation of reports and General Business items, the committee members discussed the proposed resolutions which deal with the current situation arising from COVID19.
The resolutions were proposed for the continued good governance of the Ulysses Club and its Branches, in light of the various Laws and Regulations imposed by State and Federal Governments in response to the outbreak of COVID-19 in Australia.
The resolutions are based on the best available information from Government and Agencies, along with our own internal advice from those familiar with all aspects of, and implications of, our current Ulysses Club Constitution.
These resolutions were passed solely for the duration of the imposition
of laws and regulations brought about by the State and Federal authorities
to control/combat COVID-19, and for no other time or purpose.
Whilst no one individual can claim proprietary rights to propose
ultimate solutions, the following decisions resulting from the resolutions
are all based on best available information and with all good will
(within an ever changing and evolving environment). This is unchartered
territory with no precedents, for all concerned.
The National Committee voted unanimously to immediately suspend all current practices in regard to all sections of the Ulysses Club Constitution that relate to the notice of, dates of, conduct of, including ballots and elections, for the Club’s AGM and Branch AGMs, and that the period of suspension of standing orders is limited to the period of all relevant Laws and Regulations imposed by State and Federal authorities for the control of the current COVID-19 outbreak in Australia precluding meetings to be held.
The National Committee voted unanimously to hereby cancel the Ulysses Club Annual General Meeting previously scheduled for 9th May 2020 in Lismore NSW and authorises the Public Officer (John Osborne #41785) to lodge Form A11 “Application for extension of time for holding annual general meeting” requesting extension of time to 30th September 2020.
The National Committee voted unanimously to reschedule the cancelled
Ulysses Club Annual General Meeting to a date and venue to be determined
as and when the restrictive COVID-19 State and Federal Laws and Regulations
will permit. The proposed date chosen by the National Committee is
Saturday 26th September 2020, in Sydney N.S.W. The venue details will
be advised once details are available.
In the event that meeting restrictions associated with COVID-19 have
not been relaxed by 30th August 2020 the Public officer is to seek
guidance from the Registrar regarding the Annual General Meeting 2020.
The full text of the Preamble and the Resolutions will be included in the Minutes of the National Committee meeting held 4th April 2020.
Further notifications will be made regarding the Postal Vote extension
of time to lodge the Postal Vote, the venue of the Annual General
Meeting, and Branch AGMs if questions arise.
Leader 1 April 2020
As far as our motorcycling activities are concerned we are all in lockdown. 3 Riders went off last week for a short jaunt and that is it. The Branch AGM has been postponed indefinitely as has the National AGM. In keeping with the guidelines from the PM and the Premiers we will not be having any meetings or gatherings for some time to come. So stay home and stay isolated and for something to do you can always work on your trusty machine.
