Please find here the results of voting from this year’s Annual General Meeting.
All Executive positions were decided by acclamation with only one candidate nominated for each position.
Resolution 6.1, ratifying the emergency Class Rule change, is passed
Resolution 7.1, proposing a change to scoring system used for International Championships, is defeated
Resolution 7.2, affecting judging at International Championships is passed
Note that Special Resolutions (defined as Class Rule and Constitution changes) require a 2/3 majority. All other resolutions are simple majority decisions.

Based on the reported owner counts from most countries, attached is the list showing the counts and the resulting voting strength for the upcoming AGM voting. You will note two countries shown in yellow. Those countries reported late and will not participate in the voting.
Remember that as described in the Constitution and Regulations, the in country voting that you report carries as a simple majority and that subsequently all of your voting strength count for your country goes for that simple majority winner. Then the votes for the Class Rule Change requires a 2/3 majority to carry. Other resolutions are simple majority.
Your in country voting should be concluded in time to insure that you have your results to me no later than when I get going the morning of November 22, 2015. I don’t start too early so there is a little wiggle room. But you ought to get them in the mail by maybe the 21st.
Another reminder is that you cannot submit a tie. You as the class representative in your country are allowed to break ties by casting an additional vote. If no other owners in your country vote then I still expect that you will cast a vote on behalf of your organization, you are fully allowed to do that.
I have about a half dozen vote counts already submitted but I haven’t looked at them to see the results, so don’t ask!!

IOM ICA has received a nomination for the position of Secretary following the deadline for nominations. Because there were no nominations for that position (the current Secretary is not standing for re-election) a proposal to accept this nomination was sent to all World Council members. There was no opposition to doing that received by the Secretary and so we will amend the published Agenda to include:
- Election of Officers
Nominations for Gary Boell (USA) for the position of Secretary have been received by USA, Olivier Cohen (World Council Member) and Lawrie Neish (World Council Member)
