Ulysses Club Annual General Meeting 2021  
The meeting will be held on Saturday 15th May 2021 commencing at 1:00 p.m.
The venue for the AGM will be the Coral Room, Orange Ex Services Club, 231-243 Anson Street, Orange NSW 2800.

We are all aware that our annual general meeting scheduled for March in conjunction with the National Rally in Mandurah had to be abandoned due to COVID uncertainty and travel restrictions. The Club still has a statutory requirement to hold a meeting before the end of June 2021. Travel restrictions and border closures have severely curtailed the normal riding activities of all Ulysses Club members. Clearly, with the short notice of the cancellation of Mandurah Rally, the National Committee could not arrange an alternative National Rally. However, many members have indicated they want to get riding again and meet up with fellow members in a Meet’n’Greet or Odyssey type event which could incorporate the annual general meeting.
After a search for a suitable and available space in a relatively COVID safe area the National Committee has decided to convene the 2021 Annual General Meeting of the Ulysses Club Inc. in Orange, NSW. The meeting will be held on Saturday 15th May 2021 commencing at 1:00 p.m.
The venue for the AGM will be the Coral Room, Orange Ex Services Club, 231-243 Anson Street, Orange NSW 2800.
The previously submitted nominations for the 2021 National Committee still stand and are as follows:-
President:                                       Allan Pratt #9186, Henry Rokx #28636
Vice President:                               Allan Pratt #9186
National Secretary:                        Sharryn Nankervis #36204
National Treasurer:                        John Osborne #41785
Ordinary Committee:                     Blue Knowles #33140
Ordinary Committee:                     Ken Eaton #51189
Ordinary Committee:                     Robert Hunt #51563
In keeping with usual AGM traditions the National Committee has decided to hold a Saturday night dinner for members and guests to attend. We are working on other activities for members who make the trip to Orange, and who may want to spend several days in the region. Members in Orange Branch are assisting in putting some options together.

Due to current COVID protocols it will be necessary to have indicative numbers of attendees with the Orange Ex Services Club before the meeting to ensure a safe seating plan in the venue. To facilitate this we will use a registration portal similar to the on-line National Rally registration. The registration portal will also provide facility to register and pay for the Saturday evening dinner. Negotiations regarding pricing for the dinner are still to be finalised and it is anticipated the Club will subsidise the dinner as a means of encouraging members to attend.
Further information will be provided as we move into more detailed planning.
We will let you know when the registration portal is open.
Also please note that the POSTAL VOTING FORMS already received for the Annual General Meeting which was scheduled to be held in Mandurah as part of the National Rally are still valid and will be counted for the rescheduled AGM held on 15th May 2021. The final date for lodgement of Postal Votes is 23rd April 2021.
