NABO AGM 2018

The NABO AGM will be held at on Sunday 11th November at the Tamworth CC Club, Kettlebrook Wharf, Kettlebrook Rd Tamworth B77 1AG (by boat it is on the Coventry Canal, just up from Fazeley Junction).

 

We will start at 11 am with the AGM formal business, followed by a presentation and discussion. After a light lunch, there will be a meeting of the new Council, to which NABO members are welcome.

 

The agenda is here

There will be a special resolution to amend the constitution to change the required notice period for Council nominations (clause 5.4), and additionally for notice of resolution (clause 6.1 a).) The resolution is here.

 

Please let us know if you are coming so that we can plan the catering. 

 

We still need your help. The Council meets around seven times per year and the work is rewarding and interesting … and occasionally frustrating. You'll learn what goes on behind the scenes and make new friends into the bargain. If you feel you might be out of your depth, worry not; one of us will act as your mentor to help you with the few formalities. Don't be shy! It is too late for nomination at the AGM now, but dont let that put you off.  We cannot continue to be effective without the new input of active members - like you.

NABO Bulletins

NABO publishes a monthly bulletin exclusively for members. It is distributed to members by email and is also available on the web site.

The bulletins cover current news, activities of Officers and members, and any internal administration issues

It also enables Council to quickly gather views of the membership.

You can read the bulletin archive here.

Boater safety

Safety is an important issue for us all. NABO members hold postions on all the Boat Safety Scheme committees and the CRT Navigation Advisory Committee.

How we operate

NABO is primarily a representative body. We do not hold social event or organise volenteer activities.

We are not a charity or limited company. We are beholden to nobody except our subscribing members.

We operate with a managment Council to conduct the business and activities of the Association. Council and other officers are entirely voluntary being elected at the AGM which is held each November, with venues usually in the Midlands.

Our principal means of communication with our membership is our magazine ‘NABO News’ which is published 6 times per year. Each edition is published shortly after each Council meeting at approximately eight-weekly intervals so that news and information is timely and relevant. For those who cannot access snail mail, it can be downloaded from the web site. We also send out a short email bulletin monthly, to let members know what is happening day to day, and ask for views. We maintain a web site and items of interest and reference are available, and there are links to our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The Council normally meets at 8 week intervals, in boat clubs in central locations around the country, and all Association members are welcome to attend, and get involved if you wish. The date and locations are published in NABO News and on the web site. There are no regional meetings or committees but as far as possible each area of the country has a representative, and you may wish to identify the local member in your area and make contact. Local issues are always important and your regional representative may be able to help.

As NABO is a representative body and we do ask that members write, phone, or e-mail to Council members with any problems or views, and we always welcome items for NABO News.
