Our 2007 AGM was held at the Nedlands Yacht Club at 10am on the 11th of January, with 13 attendees and representation from WA, Tas and NSW. Bill Cromarty, on behalf of Tasmania was welcomed as a newly affiliated member of the association.
As there was only one formal notice of motion received prior to the AGM (carried over from the previous AGM regarding the grandfathering of boats 1243 & 1244 which was carried), discussion was invited from the assembly on a broad range of topics, including alterations to the constitution on issues such as adjustable side stays, windward/leeward courses, , fleet hire/leasing arrangements with clubs and organisations, apportioning funds toward dedicated training programs throughout Australia and adopting a National Training Coordinator to derive and oversee such operations.
The election of officers for 2007 resulted in David Price remaining in the position of National President, Kerry Cotton taking over the role of treasurer from David Lowe who indicated his retirement now that his kids have moved on. Kerry also accepted the role of National Registrar with Richard Griffin retiring to other pastures. Tom Nugent was elected our National Secretary (currently NSW Secretary) and will also take on the role of Public Officer for the National Association. The role of National Measurer was left to be filled at a future time as Stephen Schutz retired after 3 years service. Webmaster's role went to David Price and Development Officer was taken up by Lionel McFadyen, who also presides as a Vice President NSW, with Andy Oldham WA and Bill Cromarty TAS forming the balance of the National Committee.
With the start time for race 6 looming, the meeting wound up at 10:50am with the newly elected committee looking ahead with a number of suggestions raised at the meeting, and thanks went to those that had put in a number of years of service and were now relishing a well deserved retirement.
