GENERAL SECRETARY REPORT AGM

26 FEBRUARY 2017

The Association lost 3 Past Presidents this year. Ill heath forced and Alf to stop being active on the executive he had given good service. Bob, President in 2001, was an area secretary and very active on the executive. Alan Greatwood gave over 15 years work to the Association and for the last 11 years as web master and editor of the year book . John Fox an area secretary passed away in January. Four people who had the association at heart.

John Harriyott has taken over as web master, updating the site and putting the year book on site. Roger Purssord went on a learning curve and produced the year book, thinner; all removed information is on the web site.

After 12 years as your general secretary, it is with a little sadness that I have given up the position, but I am sure that Roger will prove to be a worthy successor; he has many ideas, and can rely on me if he needs help.

The executive is in good shape for the coming year, but what about the future?

We need more Clubs to support the association, by nominating members for the executive; this year we do not have any nominations from outdoor clubs

In a year’s time we will need an Outdoor Competition secretary and 2 area competition Secretaries.

Hon. Treasurers’ Report

Having concluded my first year as Treasurer the report to AGM was made in two ways. Firstly the difference between the money in our bank accounts on the 1st of October 2015 and the 31st of September 2016. There was a deficit of £ 2647.59, basically due to prize money being paid out without the income to support it. My second report takes into account the adjustment made for the income from indoor clubs being received in the previous financial year. The loss was £ 2903. With adjustments being made to the affiliation fee and competitions entry fee I expect this loss to be reversed by 2018
