OLDHAMSTOCKS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
Minutes of the Committee Meeting held on Wednesday 28th November 2018
Present: Angus McDonald
Apologies: Joyce Usher
1. Following the OCA Annual General Meeting held earlier this evening a new committee had been formed, comprising the above 7 people.
2. Appointment of Office Bearers
Office Bearers were appointed as follows:
Chair - Angus McDonald
Secretary - Lynn Harris
Treasurer - tba, committee felt it was appropriate to consider reaching out within the community to seek someone with book-keeping financial experience to fill this position. Further discussions to take place at the next Committee meeting. Chris advised the Committee that he was currently Chair of the Lammermuir Community Council, and therefore did not feel it appropriate to hold office within OCA. Chris is also one of the two representatives from OCA on the LCC.
As it had been a very emotionally charged AGM, with unexpected consequences, Sheila advised that she did not feel she could be part of the committee. The Committee reluctantly accepted her decision.
4. Hall Working Group
Angus advised that he was also on the above group, which is charged with taking forward
plans for the proposed new hall. The Committee discussed this and felt it was entirely appropriate that one member of the OCA committee should also sit on the HWG, and that in fact the Chair was the ideal member.
Angus advised that he would send an email to the relevant members of the previous committee, requesting all OCA paperwork and information be transferred and made available to the new committee as soon as possible. Lynn provided her email address for this process to take place.
6. Next Committee Meeting
Secretary Lynn will send out proposed dates for the first meeting of the new Committee in due course, likely to be in early-mid January 2019.
