16/02/2017: 2017 Annual General Meeting on the 8th April 2017, Shire Hotel, Kettering.
Bookings for the Kettering AGM & Reunion need to be made through Isle of Wight Tours http://www.iowtours.com NOT the hotel. The Phone No is 01983 405116 and ask for "Reunions".
Brian Bingham - Reunion Organiser
Ladies and Gentlemen,
You may or not have noticed that there has been a little respite since the flurry of e-mails during the end of February and mid-March. As you are aware the amended Agenda for the AGM was forwarded on 22 February which included two items accepted for discussion by the Solent Branch, just seven weeks prior to the AGM. A further Agenda item was forwarded less than 48 hours following the publication, this was however rejected as the 14 week rule under Rule 4.9 of the Constitution had been invoked, i.e. all items had to be with the Executive Committee by the 31 December 2016 for inclusion on the Agenda! Why accept two items and reject one within 48 hours of submission.
The following proposal to amend Rule 3.7a will now be raised under A.O.B. by the Solent Branch as follows;
3.7a. Capitation Fees based on the nominal roll of Full Members shall be paid annually by all Branches to the Treasurer. These fees shall be determined and agreed by the National Executive Committee for ratification by all Branches at the Annual General Meeting.
Your support for this change will be welcomed.
Jim Moulson MBE
Honorary Treasurer Solent Branch
Just a reminder to those who are attending the AGM at Kettering.
There will be an afternoon 'session' where Commodore Jock Alexander from Navy Wings will be giving a presentation.
Also present at this meeting will be representatives of the Kettering Sea Cadets.
Hope to see you at the AGM
Margaret (FAAA Editor)
