The 37th SAIT ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING, 2021
The 37th Annual General Meeting of the South African Institute of Tribology was held remotely on Wednesday 4 August 2021 at 18:00.
The Meeting was chaired by SAIT Director, Treasurer and Public Officer, David Beard, with apology from SAIT President Patrick Swan.
Sixteen SAIT Members were present, with two proxies and one apology; the required quorum of twelve members was met and the Meeting declared Open.
The Minutes of the 36th AGM of the SAIT, held on 5 August 2020 on Zoom, were accepted without change.
The SAIT President's Report was read by David Beard, on behalf of the President, Patrick Swan. In his report, the SAIT President thanked Gill Fuller for her many years of excellent service for the SAIT, starting in 1985.
The Treasurer's verbal Report was accepted by all, as the Annual Financial Statements were still being processed by a newly-appointed accounting firm.
Ten nominations were received for the SAIT Executive Committee; one nomination was invalid.
The required number of Executive Committee Members is eight; however, the meeting agreed that the ninth nominee would be co-opted to act on the Committee.
