ABTA Members voted to pass seven resolutions at the Association’s Annual General Meeting held today at 30 Park Street. The first resolution confirmed the reappointment of ABTA’s auditors. The second to allow ABTA to distribute its Annual Report in electronic form as well, or in place of, a hard copy. The third moves the requirement for Members to inform the Association of all trading names from the Code of Conduct to the Articles of Association. The fourth allows the Board to be able to vote for the removal of an ABTA Director that brings ABTA or its membership into disrepute. The fifth amended certain Articles to reflect changes to the ATOL regulations. The sixth allows for Members to nominate an individual to represent them on the Board, Council of Regions, Regional Committees or the Appeal Board who is not directly employed by them. The seventh amended the Articles to reflect changes in industry practise where payments are made directly to suppliers thereby affecting turnover and subscription rates.
Nick Longman, Kane Pirie and Christine Farnish were reappointed to the ABTA Board of Directors and Alistair Rowland takes up his position on the Board from today. Hugh Morgan was re-elected as ABTA Treasurer.
ABTA is also calling for nominations for a vacant position on the Council of Regions for South Wales.
