Notification of the 50th SBA Annual General Meeting

Saturday 27th March 2021

Documents for the AGM are available to Members here

We are delighted to announce that the 50th SBA Annual General Meeting will be held on March 27th, 2021. It will be held via Zoom due to the Covid 19 pandemic. The meeting is scheduled for 2pm UK time and so we hope that some of our overseas members will be able to join us – but due to the different time zones it is all but impossible to accommodate our friends in both the USA and Australia/New Zealand!

Unlike previous years and AGMs, the 2021 AGM will be ‘business’ only – it will cover the requirements for our AGM but, sadly, with no auction, photo competition or general socialising. We will, hopefully, make up for this with the 50th anniversary events this summer.

There will be no award of trophies for the 2020 season due to the lack of steamboat rallies or events.

What happens at the AGM?

The formal Agenda for the AGM is shown below. This sets out what will take place at the AGM.

What do I need to do?

(1)  Note the date and time in your diary!

(2)  Confirm your attendance by registering here. Shortly before the AGM, the invitation to the Zoom meeting will be posted on the members’ section of the website and will be emailed to members who have signed up and have provided an email address.

(3)  If you would like your apologies noted, you can do this either by emailing the Hon. Secretary or by completing the enclosed form and posting it back to the SBA’s Hon Secretary to arrive before the date of the AGM.
