NCA for GBR vote

I regret to have to advise the NCA for GBR that only 30 GBR members voted. This is regretably low.
NCA for GBR vote
current situation
Richard Rowan writes ......
Attention all NCA for GBR owners who have not yet voted - the vote is being held open for another week.  Voting papers may now be returned to me up to and including Monday 18th September.

This is because the "turnout" is currently extremely low - in fact,  it is so low that the whole concept of the IOM Class Association and how it might operate in the future could be seriously compromised.  I originally took on the job of NCA for GBR Secretary because I thought that having a class association would help to let individual owners have a say in the running of the class and in how the class rules are dealt with.   I realise that things would not appear to have moved forward much in the last 2 to 3 years but some progress is being made. 

So,  I need all UK Owners to each now make a little effort to consider the resolutions in front of them and to let me have a vote,  even if this vote contains a lot of abstentions on individual resolutions.

Owner list

A current NCA for GBR owner list was submitted to IOMICA on 19th August.  It was subsequently amended following the discovery of a minor error in the process of assessing MYA membership status.  The amended number of owners listed was:
Certificated owners : 548     Certificated boats : 877
Registered owners : 576      Registered boats : 51

Note that certificated owners are also classed as registered owners.

The above number of owners gives GBR 11 votes out of the total of 55 votes that can be exercised during the AGM (ie 12.9%).  Click here to open the latest IOMICA voting strength pdf file.
