The ISA EGM being held to revise the club affiliation fees and voting structures is to be held in the Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire, on Sat 11th of Feb, 2012, at 11.00hrs.
In accordance with article 35 of the ISA Articles of Association, the ISA Board of Directors have asked to convene an Extraordinary General Meeting of ISA members in order to propose a revised membership fee structure.
As you may be aware a working group has been reviewing the Joint Membership Scheme for Category 1 Clubs with the aim of making the system simpler, more transparent and equitable whilst at the same time not increasing the relative JMS income to the ISA.
This EGM is being called to allow the revised structure, if passed, to be implemented for 2012 membership fees. An explanation can be downloaded below.
