Skål UK EGM and National Committee Meeting

Friday 20 September 2013, 1330hrs
Reigate Manor Hotel

Dear UK Skålleagues,
This notification is being sent to ALL UK Skål members on my database as I am unsure of the current officers for each UK club and neither the National nor the International websites appear to be comprehensive.
(If ever there was a need to complete and forward Form 2 after General Meetings or other executive changes secretaries, now is a prime example!)

On behalf of Sally Gray, National Secretary who is unwell at present, here is the official call to both an EGM and the National Committee Meeting which will be held on Friday 20 September 2013 at Reigate Manor Hotel, Reigate Hill, Reigate Surrey, RH2 9PF.

Extra-Ordinary General Meeting

There will be an Extra-Ordinary General Meeting to consider and hopefully approve the following as recommended by the National Executive Committee at its last meeting.

That "Skål UK National Rules be amended where applicable to remove any limit on numbers of members from one club being eligible to stand for election to the National Executive Committee of Skål International United Kingdom and subsequently, if approved, for another articles of the said Rules to be amended where appropriate to accommodate this relaxation."

Reasoning: it is increasingly apparent that the composition of the UK National Executive Committee remains with the same old faces and new recruits wishing take take office are few. With the reducing number of UK clubs and membership it therefore makes perfect sense not to stifle any glimmer of enthusiasm by the current limit of three executive committee members per club.

National Executive Committee Meeting

Immediately following the EGM as above, there will be a National Executive Committee meeting to which all UK Skålleagues are invited. The agenda will be circulated in due course but we need your confirmation of attendance for catering in advance.

RSVP for both please to with a copy to Sally Gray at

Would club secretaries please forward these invitations to UK members not on e-mail and also to new and other members who are not subscribed (why not? see link below) to the UK National Newsletter.

Thanks and regards

Ian Hawkes
Skål UK National Webmaster
