EFAA AGM Information

Change To The Issue Of The AGM Agenda

We are currently operating in a period of risings costs and decreasing income. Unfortunately, we are also experiencing a reduction in membership numbers compared with recent years. With these facts in mind, the committee are investigating several areas where the Association’s running costs can be reduced without any resultant, detrimental effect to the function of the Association and its members.

Commencing with the 2019 AGM, the agenda will no longer be posted to all members. Instead, it will be posted on the EFAA website. We are aware that not all members have internet access, if you require an agenda to be posted to you, please contact the General Secretary. Contact details are in the Field Archer magazine. For those members without the facility to print a copy of the agenda from the website, copies will be available at the AGM. Taking this action will result in a significant saving in postage and printing costs without any loss of information provided to members.

EFAA AGM 2018

Message From The President

Over the last many years, we have been lucky to have a great team of workers and members who have given many hours of their own time to ensure the smooth running of our association. I have long been an advocate of having understudies for all of our Committee positions. I would like you all to join with me in thanking Bela and Mike for their years of hard work on this our committee. Not only have they done the jobs they were elected to do, but over the last year they have been training understudies to do their jobs when they stood down. So with Mike training Ian and Bella working with Allison all went well. This year at the AGM both Mike and Bella decided to stand down and give the new bloods a go on the committee. Due to all of their work the transition was very smooth from the old to the new . This was thanks to, as I said before, Bella and Mike.

So once again, thank you from all of us, for all you have done on behalf of the EFAA.

Steve Kendrick.

President EFAA
