Mull and Iona call EGM

The Oban Times - - Letters -

AT THEIR re­cent AGM, the Mull and Iona As­so­ci­a­tion called an ex­tra­or­di­nary gen­eral meet­ing af­ter the res­ig­na­tion and re­tire­ment of mem­bers of their com­mit­tee.

The forth­com­ing EGM will be held in An Leanag, at 7.30pm on June 23. In an at­tempt to re­cruit new com­mit­tee mem­bers, newly- elected Vice Pres­i­dent, Ross Wil­son, sent the fol­low­ing email to as­so­ciates of Mull and Iona: Dear fel­low is­landers, I’m sure you have all at­tended or, at the very least, heard of the Mull and Iona As­so­ci­a­tion and An­nual Gath­er­ing. Last year, the as­so­ci­a­tion cel­e­brated its 150th year with a great evening of song and dance in Glas­gow.

On 01/06/16, the as­so­ci­a­tion held their An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing dur­ing which five of their cur­rent com­mit­tee mem­bers (in­clud­ing Chair­man, Trea­surer and Sec­re­tary) all in­di­cated their in­ten­tion to re­tire af­ter many years ser­vice.

To en­sure the con­tin­u­a­tion of the as­so­ci­a­tion and the long-stand­ing link be­tween our is­lands and the cen­tral belt, we need to re­cruit new mem­bers for the as­so­ci­a­tion and cre­ate an al­most en­tirely new com­mit­tee.

At present, the as­so­ci­a­tion runs an an­nual gath­er­ing in Glas­gow, holds around two meet­ings per year, and makes char­i­ta­ble do­na­tions to Mull, Iona and af­fil­i­ated causes. Such a cal­en­dar does not rep­re­sent an un­man­age­able amount of work to com­mit­tee mem­bers.

I have sent this email to all of you be­cause of your noted ties with Mull and Iona; but also be­cause of your ties with Glas­gow - where the as­so­ci­a­tion is based.

We aim to hold an Ex­tra­or­di­nary Gen­eral Meet­ing on Thurs­day June 23, and we would love you to at­tend, or even to de­clare an in­ter­est in be­ing part of the com­mit­tee by phone or email.

Thank you for your time and I look for­ward to hear­ing from you. Ross Wil­son, ross.wil­son@hot­, Mull and Iona As­so­ci­a­tion.
