Election of officers and committee members:

The current committee consists of 11 persons, all of whom are willing to offer themselves for re-election.  However we are keen to recruit some enthusiastic ‘new blood’ to the committee with different ideas on how we can best serve the membership.

Any person wishing to be considered for an officer or committee member position should be a member of the Association.  Nominations must include the name of the proposer, a seconder, an indication of agreement from the nominee and his/her contact details.  Nominations should be made in advance, in writing (by email or by post) to the CQBHA Chairman by 9th March.

Advance nominations are essential to enable the necessary election arrangements to be made and in the interests of managing time for our speakers, we will not take nominations from the floor at the AGM.

Guest speakers

Following the completion of the formal agenda, Jon Eads (MD for MDL Marinas), has kindly agreed to give a short presentation on the Twin Sails project, in his role as leisure representative on the Bridges Operating Board.

In addition, Peter Hogsden, (Marina Manager for Cobb’s Quay Marina) and Dave Wilson (MDL Regional Manager) have agreed to update members on marina matters.

Questions to our guests will be invited ‘from the floor’ on the day.  However, it would help us ensure your question is addressed, if you lodge it in advance, in writing (by e-mail or by post) to the CQBHA Chairman by 9th March.

Chairman:    Jonathan Saunders          c/o Cobb’s Quay Marina, Hamworthy, Poole, Dorset, BH15 4EL
