Meeting Day. The meeting is virtually all about totaling any votes submitted and reporting the outcome.

Please submit any resolutions as soon as you have them prepared so that the appropriate Sub Committee can review them and I can add them to our upcoming agenda.

Note that this is an election year and any and all board positions are available for new candidate nominations. Those nominations must be submitted by the closing date for resolutions (August 26th)  so that the names can be published in the Agenda that will follow 2 weeks later. The one executive board position that has reached its term limit of eight years is the position of  VC– Measurement.  Mr. Lawire Neish has dutifully executed this function since 2011, and we all owe him a great deal of thanks. I have attached both the IOM ICA Candidate form 2019  and the  IOM ICA Nominator form 2019 for your consideration . If you would like to run for one of the listed positions below, or would like to nominate a candidate for one of these position, please complete and return the appropriate form by August 26th.   The IOM ICA Executive Board positions are as follows:

  • Chairman
  • Vice Chairman of Events
  • Vice Chairman of Technical
  • Vice Chairman of Measurement                             (Term limit reached –  position open)
  • Vice Chairman of Info-Communications               (No term limit)
  • Treasurer                                                                        (No term limit)
  • Secretary

An additional update that I’m happy to announcement is Mr. Bob Wells accepted the position to serve as Chairman over ourDocument Modernization Subcommittee.  The primary focus of his group’s undertaking, will be to update the terminology and language within our Class Constitution, Class Regulation, our NCA Memorandum of Understanding, and a myriad of other administrative documents that  are all in need of renovating. Bob’s background as a writer and editor will serve our class well in this capacity.

With Kindest regards,

IOM ICA 2018 AGM BALLOT RESULTS

World Council Members:

Please find the attached 2018 Annual General Meeting ballot results spreadsheet reflecting both the voting strength of the individual NCA’s and their cast ballots.  It should be noted that the resolution focusing on increased financial transparency received overwhelming support from everyone (95%), whereas the topic of a more concise format for future European Championships was defeated by just a narrow margin (10%). Clearly this is a topic for further discussion.

We have a couple of issues that were brought forth by Gavin Watson from GBR as discussions from the floor that need to be addressed (posted within the attached Agenda).  The first topic deals with a resolution that was approved in last year’s 2017 AGM (presented by Barry Fox of CAN) requesting the development of a subcommittee to evaluate and potentially modernize the language used within our IOM Constitution and IOM Regulation documents.  Clearly the Ex. Board needs to recruit a point person that can chair this subcommittee and build a team to help initiate this undertaking.  At minimum, a status report on the progress of this recruiting effort should be initiated to the World Council before the end of Q1 2019.

The second topic Gavin raised deals with the calendar dates surrounding the IOM AGM itself. In short, finding a window that works for both the Northern and Southern hemisphere skippers, that doesn’t conflict with summer holidays and festive times as well.  I will have to consult the other member of the Ex.Board before replying formally to this request, but see no reason that the initiation date for the 2019 IOM AGM can’t be filed at least six months prior to the formal announcement of the AGM.  At minimum, a status report on the 2019 AGM Announcement Date should be initiated to the World Council before the end of Q1 2019.

I personally wanted to thank everyone involved in this 2018 IOM AGM for their resolution submissions, their NCA reports, and their returned ballots.  As stated, the IOM Financial Report will be filed shortly, and I will forward a copy of that document. If there are any questions or concerns about any of the attachments, please feel free to contact me. 

Wishing you all a healthy and happy New Year.
With Kindest Regards,
Gary Boell
IOM ICA Secretary

IOM ICA 2018 AGM Agenda

To all World Council Members:

Please note the secondary edition of the 2018 IOMICA AGM Agenda (Updated Nov 3 ’18), with modifications to Appendix D, and the additional attachment of our current 2018 Class Championship Rules .  This current CCR attachment will hopefully allow a comparison between our existing rules and the proposed changes in Appendix A, B, C, and D.

Please find the attached agenda for our 2018 Annual General Meeting highlighting several submitted proposals. I have also included in this email a blank copy of our  IOM NCA REPORT (individual country report) to allow all of listed NCA Representatives to provide a current fleet status within your individual countries.  This information is vital in the determination of your counties voting strength, so please make an effort to have something back to me by December 1st.  Take a moment to share what has worked well within your local region to strengthen regatta activity and growth, and what the challenges have been.

If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

With Kindest Regards,
