Things have been a bit inactive for a while, but after what seems to have been a successful Boxstock, it's time to get moving here's the HGMC AGM minutes of a rather informal, but nevertheless significant meeting...



AGM 2013

Held at The Musician, Leicester, 26th October 2013


Following notice given on Cigar Box Nation, the annual general meeting of HGMC was chaired by John Wormald, chairman of the HGMC, with committee members Ben Moor (treasurer) and Andy Leonard (secretary) present.


Chairman’s Report

The Chairman reported that HGMC had not been particularly active over the past 12 months, with the exception of arranging Boxstock, via the offices of the Treasurer and Chairman. He put a general motion to the floor as to whether HGMC should be wound up, ‘put on the shelf’, or if it should seek to continue being active. The chairman pointed out that the first two editions of the UK Cigar Box Guitar Festival had been organized and financially underwritten by himself, and the last 3 had been run under the auspices of the HGMC.  If HGMC ceased to exist, it would need an individual to be prepared to take on the financial commitment of running ‘Boxstock’, assuming that there was the demand to keep the event running. This would mean in order to present a high quality annual event, someone would need to be prepared to be responsible for a budget in excess of £1000 (and last year’s event was significantly more than that in terms of overall turnover). There was general consensus of opinion that the HGMC should continue for the next 12 months.


The chairman said that in order for the HGMC were to continue, it did need to elect new officers to the positions of Treasures and Secretary, as both Ben Moor and Andy Leonard had already given lots of their time and effort supporting the cause, and it was essential to re-appoint these positions to ensure the proper constitution and banking facilities for HGMC.


Treasurer’s Report

Ben Moor reported that prior to Boxstock, the HGMC's assets were approximately £720 (sum total of the PayPal account and HGMC NatWest Bank Account).


Secretary’s Report

Nil Report


Election of Officers

The chairman offered to continue in the position of chairman. No other nominations were received and it was carried that John Wormald should continue as chairman.


Bob Coe volunteered to take on the post of treasurer; this was seconded and approved by a majority show of hands.


Mark Crew volunteered to take over the post of treasurer; this was also seconded and approved by a majority show of hands.


Any other business

The chairman pointed out that for the first two years there had been a £10 membership subscription, but over the past year, there had been a decision made not to seek membership subscriptions, as there was a degree of uncertainty as to whether people may begin to wonder if it was worth continuing with a subscription. He raised the issue for future debate as to whether the subscription should be re-introduced.


No other matters were raised.


The meeting was declared closed at approximately 4.45pm.

I have recently had a couple of ideas regarding merchandise, the first being window sticker/sticky front versions of the stickers already in stock.
The second thought was for those little rubber wristbands you can get for all sorts of charities and organizations.
