Annual General Meeting - Wednesday 13 September 2023

The Annual General Meeting Of Sailing for the Disabled will take place at 7pm Wednesday 13 September 2023 at Manx Bind Welfare, Onchan.
We remind members that to be quorate at an annual general Meeting we need 20 Members to vote either in person or via proxy. Please make every effort to attend and if you are unable to attend please submit a proxy vote. Papers will be sent out approximately one month prior to the meeting.


Andrew Evans our current Treasurer has indicated he wishes to stand down from the role at the Annual General Meeting in September. Andrew has been treasurer for a number of years and managed key changes including the transfer of assets from Pride of Mann Limited and the conversion to a company limited by guarantee, which you will recall involved a change of year end in 2022. We thank Andrew for all of his hard work over the last few years, but pressures of work and familymean it his time for him to step down.
We are now looking for a new Treasurer who will also become a Director. You do not need to be an accountant to undertake the role as our accounts are low volume and not complex. You will get support as both the current chairman and secretary are both accountants. If you are interested contact the Chairman or Secretary for a discussion.
With the AGM taking place on 13 September papers will be circulated mid-August so we are working to a deadline
