British Beekeepers Association, 61st Annual Delegate Meeting
The British Beekeepers Association is holding its 61st Annual Delegate Meeting. This will be held virtually using Zoom. More details will become available soon.
Some of the propositions to be put to the ADM include:
- Increasing the annual capitation from £19 to £21 (effective Oct 2022) to
offset a significant and believed continuing drop in donations to the Charity;
- Changing the voting system at the ADM to a single tier weighted system;
- The introduction of a set of criteria and procedures that will need to be met
and followed before a new Area Association can be accepted as such.
Should you have any questions or would like to provide feedback, please contact Douglas Nethercleft, WBKA ADM Delegate
Upcoming WLBK 88th AGM
With Covid-19 restrictions, whatever they are at the time, there is still a need to have our Annual General Meeting in February 2021.
Clearly the opportunity to meet in person is extremely unlikely and the committee took the early decision to build on the experience of the County Association, which conducted a very successful (special) Annual General Meeting earlier in the year. We decide to bring together those who wish to be virtual attendees using Eventbrite. Following on from this, the meeting itself will be held using Zoom. Only those who have expressed a wish to virtually attend will be given the meeting logon details. This evidently is considered “good practice” in the new virtual world.
At the County Association (special) AGM the Zoom facility to register attendees voting was extensively used and we anticipate also using this facility. Clearly there is some work to be done by the committee members to ensure the smooth operation of the meeting on the day.
As an early notice, the formal dates for notifications, etc. are set out below:
- Notify Members of AGM by 21 January 2021
- Deadline for receipt of proposals by 4 February 2021
- Circulation of Agenda for AGM by 11 February 2021
For those interested in taking up Beekeeping as a hobby.
