ABC AGM Documents

Hi All

September 29th is the date for this years Association of British Climbing Walls AGM. We again return to the National Mountain Centre at Plas y Brenin in North Wales.

Over the 29th & 30th we’ll also be holding a 2 day program of workshops and seminars – which we hope you’ll choose to attend – booking details can be found here – BOOKINGS.

Attendance and participation at the AGM is open to, and free for, all association members who hold current membership. This event will also start with the AGM of the Association of British Climbing Walls Training Trust (ABCTT).

An Agenda for the ABC’s AGM can be found here- AGENDA.

An Agenda, Trustee Details and Proxy voting form for the ABCTT AGM can be found HERE

Other AGM papers that members may be interested in can be found in the Members section of this website – you will need to be logged in to access these papers. They include Proxy Voting Forms, Committee Election & Role Information and a Committee Application Form. They can be found HERE.

Please note: Paper copies of these documents will not be available at this meeting in an effort to be more environmentally respectful. Members who require copies are asked to download them and bring them.

We will add the associations accounts as soon as they have been finalised by the accountant.

Notes from the Chair

As an Association we’re a collection of members – and the AGM is one of the chances that members have to interact and to ask questions and raise matters they feel are important – so if there’s something you’d like to include in the AGM please drop me a line on:

chair@abcwalls.co.uk

I can’t promise we’ll have time to include it – but I can promise we’ll try.

As our association has grown we’ve been served well by a Council and Committee of excellent volunteers – I hope some of you will now consider helping us with that good work. We currently have one part time paid officer – so we’re reliant on volunteers to move us forward. One of the items that I’ve become aware of since I became Chair is that whilst we have re-structured our committees to great effect we’ve never had the time to finish restructuring the associations official procedures and paperwork – so wherever possible we’ve striven with this AGM to reflect our existing Articles of Association whilst recognising the need to evolve and the strategic objectives of the restructuring work already done. After this AGM our association may change its structure again – and the Management Committee believe that will be the correct time to address this issue.
