At this week's meeting of the Executive Committee, a number of changes to the Constitution and Administrative Rules, were discussed and approved. The revisions will take effect immediately, although the amended constitution will be subject to final approval at the next AGM. In addition the rates of membership subs and berthing fees have been revised, with immediate effect.
A hard-copy of the revised Constitution and Admin Rules will be available at the club in due course. They may be viewed online at the following links:
The significant changes are as follows:
1. A new category of "Non-Sailing Membership" has been introduced. This category will be available to non-entitled members who are non-sailors, but who regularly contribute to the club as OOD, safety boat operator or in some other significant way. This category will also apply to power boat owners berthing their craft at the club.
2. The requirement for Rear Commodore & Vice Commodore to stand down after 2 years in office has been removed.
3. The Executive Committee are authorised to put into effect constitutional changes at any time, subject to approval at a following AGM.
