1. Voting on proposal to increase IM24CA membership fee
To increase the IM24CA membership fees from 100 Euro by 10% to 110 Euros to be effective since January 1st, 2023.
We have been considering options on how we might strengthen the finances of IM24CA so that we can encourage greater participation in the International Melges 24 Class and ensure the class has a healthy future.
The membership fees have remained at the same level for the past five years since 2016, so after due consideration we propose that we increase the membership fees from 100 Euro by 10% to 110 Euros. This means that we will have the funds to increase the marketing budget for photo/video coverage for more of our events for example and ensure all our members receive compelling images to keep as mementos of their competitive sailing.
NOTE: Nations are asked to confirm the name of their representatives or proxies and any observers to the Class Administrator Piret Salmistu at email@example.com as soon as possible, but by January 30.
If a World Council Member is unable to attend a meeting, his NCA may appoint a substitute for that meeting only. Such designations shall be in writing and received by the Treasurer/Administrator of the IM24CA prior to the meeting. Each NCA must inform the IM24CA Treasurer/Administrator of the name of their appointed World Council member or proxy substitute before the start of the AGM.
