5. GENERAL BUSINESS:

The Chairman declared the meeting open for General Business and discussion of various matters from members present.

(a) Vote of Appreciation and Gratitude on behalf of all REMLR Inc. members and enthusiasts. The members, visitors and officers present gave a vote of thanks via acclamation to the Treasurer Carolyn DeBuck for her work, and to the outgoing Vice President for his contributions and guidance.

(b) Discussion of the huge success of the 2018 Corowa Year of the Land Rover event and the 2019 40th Anniversary Swim-In event which was underway and very enjoyable so far. A motion of appreciation to the KVE Organising Committee was made and noted.

(c) The Secretary proposed a motion that REMLR Life Membership be awarded to Mick Morrissey OAM (member 378), for his initiatives and success in organising numerous events for REMLR members such as tours of the Bandiana Museum, visits to the Blighty Hotel, and Landy Love photoshoots at the footy oval at Lowesdale in previous years and the vineyard this year.

Members appreciate the conduct and organisation of the events and they have all been successful events that reflect very well on REMLR and produce happy memories for all who have attended. Life Membership is simply a small way to say "Thank you Mick" for all his efforts "above and beyond" on behalf of all the members. Motion seconded by Geoff Campbell. Motion carried unanimously.

(d) Discussion of the unfortunate disputes between a few REMLR members and Land Rover on-line parts sellers. Unhappy members had passed on complaints to the Officers and Committee members either by email or personal messaging and most had sought advice as to what course of action to take.

(e) Discussion of the legal perils inherent with "Naming and Shaming", on our forum but especially on 'social media'. Discussion of a webpage listing "REMLR recommended suppliers" for the membership and public (i.e., omitting the suppliers of disrepute), had been mentioned in the committee previously but that idea was also perilous and beyond the scope of REMLR. The President showed that a mention on the website of "recommended suppliers and parts sources" from over a decade earlier had been deleted during this year due to commercial trading implications and liabilities. The topic of Land Rover trade marks and I.P. was also discussed in relation to the parts business. Frank Z. proposed a motion that:

"there be a review of membership rules with a view to develop an appropriate code of conduct for REMLR members who are also commercial parts dealers or suppliers." And that "All members should behave appropriately to other members and it was not acceptable for a member who was also in the business of supplying parts to behave in an unconscionable manner toward other members."

The motion was seconded by Richard G., and carried unanimously by the meeting.

(f) Discussion of the funeral of the Late Stephen Stansfield (#001), and the matter of whereabouts of his beloved Ambulance. Some memories of Stephen and Norma Jean were shared. ( relevant thread http://remlr.com/forum/index.php?topic=5655.0 )

(g) The matter of the REMLR Swap Stall (at the Corowa showgrounds) and its higher $15 cost was briefly mentioned. Swap sales in 2018 (YOTLR) were boosted by sales of donated items (books and manuals) to $135. A motion was put and seconded about the REMLR Swap Stall going ahead this year and it passed on a show of hands. Discussion moved along to the matter of REMLR merchandise and the low level of stock such as stickers.

(h) Ross C. and Steven C. showed the meeting a King Gee shirt embroidered with a REMLR Tac sign by a nationwide workgear franchise...
 http://www.hippocketworkwear.com.au
Members can now select shirts in person or order online at their closest outlet, and ask the outlet to embroider the shirt using either of the two REMLR tac designs: the red and yellow tac or the low-vis green and matt black text tac. Both digital 'logos' are in the Canberra shop database and available to the other outlets in the chain of stores nationally ( relevant thread http://remlr.com/forum/index.php?topic=5526.50 ).

Meeting Closed:

There being no further items for discussion it was resolved to close the meeting. The Chairman thanked all for the interest and attendance.

The Annual General Meeting closed 1725.

Anybody wanting to become a member of REMLR and vote at the AGM follow the instructions on our website
 http://remlr.com/
It only costs $5.00 we are only a small group and at the moment about half our members are also on the committee. Have a think about it you can join at Corowa before the AGM if you wish.

I would like to second all of the nominations made by Geoff in the first post (those that I can)

Sadly I will be an apology as I won't be crossing the ditch for Corowa this year.

I would also like to accept my nominations.
