Notice of Meeting
This letter constitutes the formal Notice of Meeting for the Annual General Meeting of the IOM ICA.
Due to other activities taking up a substantial part of the Executives time recently the AGM for 2013 is slightly delayed. For the AGM to follow the guidelines of the Constitution and Regulations the following dates will be used to define the mileposts that are required.
October 6, 2013
4.6. Resolutions for an ordinary or annual meeting of the World Council shall be specified to the IOM ICA Secretary in writing at least 10 weeks before the meeting at which they are to be proposed.
October 20, 2013
4.7. At least 8 weeksâ€™ notice in writing shall be given of any ordinary or annual World Council meeting by the IOM ICA Secretary to the members of the World Council, together with a copy of the agenda for the meeting and of any resolutions which are to be proposed at the meeting.
November 17, 2013
4.9. Four (4) weeks before any meeting of the World Council, Member NCAs and NCSs shall declare in writing to the IOM ICA Secretary, by boat number and ownerâ€™s name, the Registered Owners, Registered Boats, Certificated Owners, and Certificated Boats that the Member NCA or NCS represents.
December 14, 2013
Not in the Regulations but voting results from each NCA need to be in my hands before the meeting is called to order in order to be able to represent that a quorum is represented by NCAs that are actually submitting votes.
December 15, 2013
The AGM is conducted.
This is an election year. Usually nominations for any and all positions need to be in hand by the â€œresolution deadlineâ€ date, October 6, 2013. Because of the delay in sending this notice we will extend the deadline for nominations to October 13, 2013.
For this election cycle, most of the existing Executive have indicated that they are willing to let their names stand for another 2 year term. However, the position of Chairman is one where the incumbent is not standing for another term.
If you have any questions please contact the Secretary and/or Chairman directly.
All the proposals have been approved except the 6.6.

The color codes are simple. Green means that Owner Lists were submitted and votes received. Red means no Owners Lists (in contravention of the MoU held by those countries) and, of course, no votes. Yellow means Owner lists submitted but no voting results received (also maybe not keeping up with MoU requirements).
IOMICA Exec Secretary
The Agenda outlining the resolutions for the 2012 AGM has been released to all NCA Representatives now and should be circulating within each member country soon. Below you will find links to the Agenda as well as a note sent to the NCAs outlining who can vote on each resolution as well as the requirements for the successful passing of each proposal. Most are straightforward.
Each resolution has been posted to a section of the Forum entitled 2012 AGM Resolutions. You may ask questions and post comments in each of topics. Please stay on topic in each of those so that we can hope to keep confusion from creeping in.
If you have any questions about the voting process within your own NCA, please contact your NCA for any further clarification.
If you need anything else from me just let me know.
