New date for 2019 AGM

On 27 June Reading Operatic Society held what was intended to be its AGM. A small, enthusiastic group attended and a number of great ideas were discussed – my thanks to all who were there.

Unfortunately, we failed to make the quorum of 25% of members attending in order to formalise the meeting and its related business. This was in part due to last-minute issues with illness but that would not have been a problem had our numbers been higher in the first place.

We have set a new date for the AGM of 5 August 2019, 19:30 at Earley St Peters Hall. Out of respect for those who attended the first time, we will hold a short meeting focused on the essential business points, including election of any new committee members, with opportunity for informal discussion for those who would like to stay afterwards.

Committee members and volunteers

We have vacancies on the committee that we need to fill.

We ask committee members to commit to 12 meetings per year on a set monthly date (with occasional absences understood), plus whichever tasks you volunteer to become involved with. You’ll get to work with a positive, energetic team of people to shape ROS as we continue to plan exciting steps in the future, plus put something back into the world of theatre that we all enjoy.

We are also seeking a Treasurer – this person might already be in our ranks but potentially we are open to all suggestions for someone who would enjoy looking after this essential part of ROS.

If you wish to be on the committee please complete a committee nominee form and return it to by 24th July.

If a regular commitment is not possible, we are encouraging people that can help us pick up one-off tasks of all kinds, or to work on our marketing and fund-raising sub-committee teams. A simple indication you are willing to help in any way would be very encouraging to the committee.

If you have any questions at all about any of the documents, please drop me a note on before the Annual General Meeting.

If you are unable to attend please complete a proxy vote form and email it to

Kind regards
