About the Event

The Club’s Annual General Meeting is held each year between January 1st and June 30th.  Each year the AGM is held at a different location, and this has become known as the AGM Event.  While the AGM event has formal fixtures in place for some days of the event (for example, the Extended National Committee meeting held on the Friday, the Grand Parade and Civic Welcome Ceremony on the Saturday morning, and the Annual General Meeting itself on the Saturday afternoon), there are also regular components of the event held -  a “Meet and Greet” social and meal held during the week and the Saturday night dinner and entertainment, and on the Sunday a morning church service which is conducted immediately before the Closing Ceremony.

Additionally, the club provides information and fun, including the Road Safety Forum, trade displays, bike manufacturers’ test rides, organised rides, food vendors, social gatherings, karaoke and ‘red faces’ which have been included in past events by the host committee happening for the event week.  Club members travel from all over the country, as well as overseas members and members from our sister clubs to attend the week-long gathering.

Members are encouraged to attend the AGM Event and experience the whole atmosphere, environment and ambience of gathering together with several thousand like-minded individuals, all intent on having a great time.  Members are also encouraged to attend the actual Annual General Meeting itself and involve themselves in the business of the Club and election of the National Committee.

Previous AGM Events have been held in Townsville, Albany, Hobart, Nurioopta, Alice Springs, Mildura, Canberra, and Launceston for example.

The first AGM was held in Sydney but from 1985 the AGM was held in a different place – the second AGM was held in Tumut, NSW, and in 1986 it was held in Tenterfield.
