This is our 13th AGM since our inception Mar 1996. Seventeen people attended with two members acting as observers. We received several nominations via email which made AGM this year rather interesting.
The AGM itself went unexpectedly fine ... we went in with nomination papers for several committee positions. Unprecedented in MNS Miri Branch 13 year history, we had 2 and 3 corner fights for several positions. All ended amicably with a very strong team set up to run the branch and our activities for the term 2009/2010.
