It's rare that I agree with Greg, but I have to say he's spot on with this 
one, although I'm not an active financial member and I likely have no 
right in commenting, I'm gunna anyway :)

People have lives (yes, shock horror I know) regardless of if they are 16 
or 60 (well you know what I mean), something that is of such importance
should be set in concrete 3 months before hand so people can plan around
it, you say "The AGM normally happens in September", having been on this 
list for years I agree members should expect September, but that's a mere 
5 1/2 weeks away, if I was an active member, what should I do, block out
every weekend in the entire month? Hardly fair.

Perhaps those who next wish to stand for the executive will ensure this 
sort of thing is addressed properly and professionally next year.
