That's a typo on my part. Thanks for catching it. I've updated the

You are correct on point 2. It seems that you are supposed to confirm
the last AGM minutes at the next AGM as well as any intervening SGM
minutes. Serves me right for copy and pasting. I've updated the agenda
to remove that item.

The previous 3 and 4, that is Treasurers Report and Audit, would
normally be presented at our AGM. However we were not able to complete
these in time especially the audit, hence why they are being presented
to members at the SGM.
