I would like to strongly support Roy's "thought" of one owner/one vote. The present system of "certificated" and "registered" owners is unnecessarily complicated and simply adds work for the officer concerned with collating an IOMICA vote within each NCA. Once the one owner/one vote issue is clarifi...

I have undertaken to compile the vote for the NCA for GBR in the forthcoming AGM.

Currently, I have an up-to-date list of owners ready to submit to IOMICA - this will be submitted in the form of a pdf file. To whom should this emailed ?

Andy I am in agreement with Ken that the alteration of the Agenda for the AGM initially by the addition of the election for chairman was not properly handled, neither by way of complying with IOMICA's own regulations nor by way of alerting NCAs directly. I didn't spot that first change to the Agenda...

I would like to advise you that voting for AGM resolutions has now started in GBR.

I would not be very happy to have to start making changes to the resolutions at this stage.

Has anyone checked to see whether you can actually change the Agenda for the AGM now that the process is running in the NCAs.
