- Article 18 of the Constitution – Amend the quorum number from 50 to 40.
Currently we require 50 association members at an AGM or EGM in order have a quorum. Last year we had around 65 people attend the AGM. If any future AGM or EGM was to clash with another event , or bad weather put people off from attending, we might end up in a situation where we have to cancel. Lowering the number of members required for a quorum would help to make this less likely. If membership numbers go up in the future we can reverse the reduction.
2. Junior Members – Raise the age to 18.
Currently 16 years old. We would like to try and increase the number of people under the age of 18 joining the Association, and to prevent drop off where previously young anglers coming to the end of their Jnr membership, might not review at standard adult prices.
3. Brown Trout – Lift the ban on killing trout.
Proposal put forward by an Association member. The Committee were unanimously against this. Putting it to the AGM will allow us to see whether the body of the Association agrees, and perhaps demonstrate to the proposer the current thinking amongst his fellow members.
8.30pm Raffle and Permits
- Alan Atkins (Chairman) cannot attend due to work commitments
