The AGM of the Loch Lomond Angling Improvement Association was held on 15 February 2017 at Partick Burgh Hall, Glasgow with 130 members in attendance.
The interim chairman, secretary and treasurer delivered reports on behalf of the committee covering the period 15 December 2016 to 15 February 2017. This was a busy time with end of season business merging into the planning and administration of the next. It had demanded a lot of effort, but the transition had gone relatively smoothly and problem free. The Interim Committee were thanked for their support and work.
All interim offices and committee positions were declared vacant and the following office bearers and committee members elected.
Chairman: Jim Raeburn
Vice Chairman: Robert Wilson
Secretary: Gareth Bourhill
Treasurer: Scott Sinclair
The Chairman addressed members on the impact of LLAIA Catch Returns on our future Conservation Categorisation. Although Marine Scotland have indicated that future grading will involve scientific data, catch returns will continue to play a major part in the process. It is therefor imperative that all members submit returns as soon as the season ends to ensure transmission to Marine Scotland by 31 December annually.
The subject was debated and member’s suggestions noted. The committee would list addressing this matter highly on their priorities.
Members were thanked for their attendance and the meeting closed.
Details of representatives from the Vale of Leven District Angling Club, River Leven and Coarse angling clubs will be announced when finalised.
The first meeting of the new committee will take place on 23 February 2017.
