NABO Chairman's report from the AGM

The 22nd Annual General Meeting was held on 16th November 2013.

The guest speakers were Adam Comerford and Emily Crisp from the CRT Hydrology section. They gave an excellent presentation and then ran working sessions on their current thinking on water management. We all thoroughly valued their attendance and found the presentation both informative and enlightening. It was so reassuring to hear how CRT is approaching this issue.

Richard Parry CRT CEO also attended and met members and our excellent hosts at the Wolverhampton Boat Club.

Council elections took place and these will be the subject of a separate announcement.

The Chairman delivered his annual report, and it can be read below.

Consult (verb) NABO News editor considers consultation

This is the Editorial from the April NABO News

In  the April issue (of NABO News) CRT features promi­nently, not always for the right reasons: it seems to be increas­ingly confused between what consti­tutes consultation with its ‘custom­ers’—boaters like you and me—and what is a simple reporting of devel­opments. Many, if not most, boaters are still unaware of the detail of what CRT is about and what its policies are, so I welcome the boaters’ meet­ings that are taking place all over the country by Head of Boating, Sally Ash, and Trustee, John Dodwell.

NABO updates policy document

NABO Council has recently reviewed the NABO policy document, to bring it up to date and relevant for the current boater issues. For long term members there will be no surprises, as the content reflects what NABO has  been saying for many years. For those new to NABO, or thinking about joining, it tells a little of what the Assocition stands for. NABO welcomes healthy debate on these issues.
