EGM to Decide Revised ISA Funding Structure Tomorrow

#IRISH SAILING ASSOCIATION – A good turnout of Sailing Clubs from around the country is expected tomorrow morning in Dun Laoghaire to vote on revised club affiliation fees for funding the Irish Sailing Association (ISA) at a specially convened extraordinary general meeting.

The association proposes to introduce a 'single fee formula' proportionate to a club's membership subscription income. The motion, if passed, will update an existing Joint Membership Scheme (JMS) where every member of a sailing club contributes to the cost of running the ISA.

The proposal aims to implement the changes for 2012 membership fees. The ISA say the changes will not increase the relative JMS income to the ISA.

The ISA takes subscriptions from 73 sailing and powerboat clubs in the country ranging in size from the smallest clubs with only a dozen members to the largest in Dun Laoghaire, the Royal St. George Yacht Club with 1,858 members.

Many Clubs are currently struggling to maintain membership numbers in the current economic times and against difficult odds.

The egm is scheduled for 11am tomorrow at the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire.
