UKWA Annual General Meeting 2009

20 March 2009

Dear UKWA members,

The 2009 Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday May 3rd at the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy. The exact time and location will be published on April 18th with the Agenda, including details of any nominations received for vacant posts on the Committee. There will be elections as it is a constitutional requirement that the Officers - Chairman, Treasurer,(Company) Secretary- plus one third of the remaining members stand down each year. Those standing down may offer themselves for re-election; but i am also inviting others to step forward, or be nominated, for any vacant posts.

I would ask the class sub committees and the regional associations to reaffirm their nominated representatives for committee. The other vacant positions are listed below; and here is the link to the 2008 AGM Minutes to refresh your memories!

During the past year Bob Ingram replaced Jay Williamson on the Management Committee as Head of Racing; a job well done, and a job for which he is nominated for 2009.

I will also be seeking re-election as Chairman. At last things are coming together, the expenses are going down, and the events this year should run at a slight profit or at least break even. I feel a lot has been achieved over the last few years, but I feel I can continue to achieve a lot more to benefit the UKWA.

Ian Jones.

Nominations are invited for the following committee positions:

Nominations must be sent to Arabella Andrup, Administrative Secretary, by April 11th. Please include a short CV , the post applied for, and your reason for applying.
