Two surveys of members opinions on proposed changes to the NACCAi constitution were undertaken at a forum on 8 February 2020 and online between 1-16 March 2020.

The survey results showed that over half of eligible members voted for membership of NACCAi to be kept to people who own property or reside in the North Arm Cove village area. Further, the vote showed that in the event that landowners from the non-urban and extended area were permitted to be members, nearly half of eligible members voted that these landowners should not be allowed to vote on motions.

Due to the coronavirus we have cancelled the NACCAi general meeting scheduled for 10am on Saturday 4 April.

At this meeting the Committee was planning to discuss the results of the constitution survey. Since we will not be able to do this, we will be preparing a report on the results of the survey and will post it on the website in about a week.

The next general meeting is scheduled for Saturday 13 June at 10am.

On Sunday evening 1 March 2020 I sent an email to all members (for whom we had email addresses) requesting them to complete a short seven question survey on the new constitution, by Monday 16 March 2020.

The purpose of the survey is to determine members views on whether people from the surrounding non-urban and rural areas should be permitted to be members of the association, and if so what voting rights they should have.

In the last general meeting on 8 February I advised that the minutes of the special and general meetings held on 7 December 2019 needed amending and the Fame Cove Subcommittee report needed to be included. This has now been done and the amended minutes are posted for member review and approval at the April general meeting.

The forum commenced with an introduction by President Jim Parnell on how it was going to be run, which was followed by a presentation by Secretary Maria Pickles on the Executive Committee’s views on the geographical area that should be covered by the constitution and the reasons why.

To all and sundry, let it be known that the current NACRA/NACCAi Executive did not create the current situation with constitution.  We inherited it -  Let me repeat that – We did not cause the current situation – previous/past leadership of NACRA are responsible.

These attacks on my fellow members need to cease.

Maria Pickles as well as secretary of  NACRA/NACCAi , is on the Hall committee, the garden group, attends the SARG group meetings with local council on the Cove’s behalf and is heavily involved in conservation in the Cove.
