AGM at Sovereign Harbour Yacht Club

An unprecedented five new Directors were elected at this year's Chamber AGM.  It is simply fantastic to see the interest we have generated in our Chamber of Commerce and we are delighted to welcome them all aboard.

The AGM was held at the yacht club with beautiful harbour views on Wednesday 17th May in the Royal Sovereign Suite and we were welcomed by the Commodore, Dickie Bird, and  made to feel very welcome.  

I apologise that I was unable to be with you but I understand that the Vice President, Stewart Pierce, managed the meeting very effectively.  The minutes of the meeting are shown below along with the accounts and the presentations by:

Richard Garland

I must also thank Bill Plumridge and Ron Naylor who both stood down at the AGM after 24 and 18 years service respectively.  Our Directors give their time, expertise and knowledge to the Chamber free of charge  and I am sure you will join me in thanking both Bill and Ron for their sterling service.
