You are welcome to attend and vote at the above meeting, the Agenda for which follows. Further details of the Meeting are included in the attached, advance copy of our February 2011 Trust Bulletin, which will shortly be delivered by our volunteers to local letter-boxes.   


1. Welcome to AGM
2. Summary Reports
3. Resolutions:
        Life Membership
It is proposed to confer Honorary Life Membership on the following residents, who have served their community through outstanding work for the Beecroft-Cheltenham Civic Trust, over many years:
a.   Wayne Yeo (former Treasurer with some 40 years prior service)
b.   Keith Coble (retiring Auditor with some 30 years recent service)
c.     Ross Walker (who has given some 20 years committee service, continuing in a notable array of roles)
d.   Brian Sippel (who coordinates some 40 resident volunteers to distribute some 4100 bulletins, every few months, for 10+ years). 

        Revised Constitution
It is proposed to adopt a revised Constitution:
The Associations Incorporation Act 1984 and its supporting regulation have recently been repealed and replaced with a new Act and regulation which impose slightly different requirements. All organisations in NSW affected by this Act must make similar appropriate changes.  As a result, it has been necessary to revise and amend the Trust's Constitution so that it complies with NSW law. The opportunity has been taken to bring forward several other amendments so as to give more flexibility in our operations and to ensure that, as far as is possible, a Rule covers the whole of the subject to which it is directed. Further details are in the attached advance copy of the Trust’s February 2011 Bulletin.

4. Committee Election      
5. C Ward Councillors’ Report
6. M2 / Murray Farm Road Bridge – Resident Survey Results
7. Trust Committee Election Results

The revised constitution and a summary of changes are available by emailing me, or a copy may be obtained by telephoning me (040 875 1915 or A.H. 9875 1915). Summary reports will be similarly available.  They will also be accessible at  You are also welcome to nominate for the Trust Committee – please email or phone me for a form; to be returned to me by 28 February 2011.
