I understand that there have been some issues making the RSD discussion document available on the RSD web site. I’m making it available for download here by request. As well as a draft IRSCA constitution.
Comments to the forum, IOMICA Exec or RSD DM are encouraged.

The AGM resolutions that require RSD ratification are with the Exec for proof reading, theyâ€™ll be sent shortly.
Bruce and the ESC are busy with arrangements for the Worlds 2009 in Barbados. An application for 2011 has been received from GBR and looks very promising. Iâ€™m hopeful that itâ€™ll be accepted reasonably soon.
Despite the fact that we seem to have only just completed an AGM, another is looming! The ESC is arranging a date during the Worlds to hold this yearâ€™s AGM, notice will go out soon but itâ€™s worth starting to think about resolutions now. Itâ€™s also worth remembering that the Executive Officers positions are due for election this year. Iâ€™d be very pleased to see some competition for the Exec jobs and Iâ€™m very keen to seen each Exec Officers role filled with someone motivated to make a contribution.
The various sub committees are also under staffed, let the VCs know if you feel you can help out.
The minutes of the 2008 AGM are now available from the AGM web page:
My apologies for the delay in getting this task completed.
The Exec is now working on the submission to ISAF-RSD for ratification of the CR changes.
VC Events has accepted the bid from BAR to host the IOMICA World Championships 2009.
Both BAR and ESP bids satisfied the criteria for an excellent World Championships. The majority of the Exec favoured BAR. We now look forward to working closely with BAR towards a successful World Championships.
The 2008 IOMICA AGM will take place electronically between Monday 24 November 00:00 GMT and Sunday 30 November 00:00 GMT.
Proposals for resolutions should reach the IOMICA Secretary by 15 September, a template for submitting proposals can be downloaded here.
An agenda will then be produced no later than 29 September.
Each NCA then has until 27 October to submit owner lists to confirm voting strength, remember that without this submission you will not be eligible to vote.
It is likely that there will be proposals that will require owner ballot, so itâ€™s worth starting to prepare for it soon.
