The Archery GB Annual General Meeting was held on 16 April at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre in Buckinghamshire, and attracted 130 people.
Several changes were voted on at the event, which included: raising the senior member’s fee to £42 for club members and £50 for direct members; introducing a flat rate of 25 percent of the senior fee for juniors, archers with a disability, and archers between 18-24 years old; pro-rata fees were changed from quarterly to half-yearly; and a resolution was added to the Articles of Association that allows the board to expand up to 14 members if required.
Seven new executive directors were elected by ballot: Dave Harrison, Simon Cordingley, Lizzie Rees, Steve Tully, Muriel Kirkwood, Erik Rowbotham and Julie Ryan. Trish Lovell was elected as president.
Interim chief executive Neil Armitage presented Archery GB’s Strategic Plan 2016 to 2020, which outlined objectives including growing and sustaining participation, delivering Olympic and Paralympic targets, reducing the reliance on outside funding and managing facilities, coaching and competition strategies.
