Welcome to the Southern Cross Club

The Southern Cross Club is a social club for Aussies and Kiwis living in Denmark. Our goal is provide our members with a network, organise get-togethers and events where we, as a club, can have some fun and keep in touch with what's going on downunder.

If you're a Kiwi or an Aussie living here in, or on your way to, Denmark, you're welcome to keep an eye on what's going on here on our website - but we'd rather you joined :-)

The membership fee (both single and family) is pretty reasonable really, and we'll not only keep you up to date on our social events, but you'll also be entitled to discounts. Basically it comes down to your level of participation - like all things - and how much you are willing to enjoy the club and the activities we organise.

Simon is organising a day tramp in eastern Skåne on Thursday 28 June. Bush, heath, hills, history, Skåne's highest waterfall etc etc. Details in Danish are found on vandrefuglene.dk. If you can't read Danish, contact me for details. This is a tramp arranged for another club, but you may join us.

SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING

Membership – Clarification
and
Notice of Meeting - Extraordinary General Meeting

There is some confusion regarding the Club’s membership list and mailing list which we are working hard to clarify. This message supercedes any previous messages on this issue.

The Committee has called an Extraordinary General Meeting for Wednesday 24th January 2018 at 6pm.
This meeting is being called to make necessary changes to the existing constitution, as well as to socialise a little.
We welcome all members to join us for this short but important meeting, after which we plan to get some take away food and a few liquid refreshments (costs to be shared).

* If you wish to become a member OR to confirm your membership, please note the following.

1. If you are, or have been, a member of the Southern Cross Club in Denmark, please send an email to committee@southerncrossclub.dk to confirm your membership. Note that at present, there is no subscription or joining fee.
PLUS
Advise us, before 10th January 2018, that you wish to attend the Extraordinary General Meeting.
OR
State that you WILL NOT attend the Extraordinary General Meeting.

2. If you are not a member but wish to join the club, we welcome you. Please send an email to committee@southerncrossclub.dk requesting membership. If you are an Australian or New Zealand citizen, please tell us that, otherwise please provide some supporting information outlining your connection with either Australia or New Zealand (which is required by the Club’s constitution). Note that at present, there is no subscription or joining fee.
PLUS
Advise us, before 10th January 2018, that you wish to attend the Extraordinary General Meeting.
OR
State that you WILL NOT attend the Extraordinary General Meeting.

3. If you have already clicked “Going” on the Facebook page, “Thanks” but that will NOT be enough. In accordance with the constitution, you will need to send an email as detailed in the first two options above.

4. The proposed changes to the constitution are summarised here.

Firstly, it is proposed to reduce the required number of members on the committee, reflecting the smaller membership of the club now compared with times past. This change is necessary to enable the club to function in the current conditions.

Secondly, a number of minor changes to the wording of various clauses are proposed to reflect the conditions of today, which includes such things as changes to electronic communication and financial management.

Thirdly, a number of other changes are proposed to clarify some of the Club’s functions, such as roles of the committee and committee members.

5. Further details, including the address for the meeting, will be sent to those who have been accepted as members of the Club (as per points 1 and 2 above).
