IOM ICA 2019 AGM Notice of Meeting Conclusion

Please find copy of our voting strength document, and the outcome of the 2019 Ballot measure.  I have also provided a copy of the completed agenda that  highlights a couple of salient points raised by both Mr. Gavin Watson (GBR NCA REP), and Mr. Miguel Salvador (EPS NCA REP) in the “Discussion form the Floor” portion of the Agenda outline.  Both topics require a time bound response by the IOM ICA board, in addition to postings being made on our IOM ICA site.

I will send a World Council update when the historic financials are posted, and review with Mr. Pedro Egea the options for an online World Council Forum potentially within the IOM ICA page.

On a more somber note, I learned this morning that Mr. Fred Rocha (our IOM ICA Chairman) lost his father today.  Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers, as this must be a tremendously difficult time for the Rocha family.

Thank you all for your continued support, feedback, and participation throughout this AGM process.

With Kindest Regards,

Gary Boell

IOM ICA Secretary

CAN Resolution for changes to Class Rules

After some further consideration and discussion, the NCA for CAN wishes to withdraw it proposal to change Rule C.7.4.

Our intent was to tighten up the current rule and make it clearer that this dimension on any rig was not to change during an event. We still feel it is a fairly misunderstood rule and will use the Request For Interpretation process to attempt to get that clarification.

IOM Class Secretary for CAN
