No doubt some of you will know I am a member of the board of CI, I'm somewhat limited in what I can say about the back ground stuff. Since the EGM some weeks ago substantial work has been done by board members to address the issues raised at the previous meeting.Financial Accounts 2013 Ratification
As I am sure you are aware at a previous EDM convened on Wed 8th Oct last to pass the above accounts the motion proposing the adoption of the accounts was not passed.
The board of Canoeing Ireland have taken the points raised during the meeting on board and are working to present a re-drafted set of accounts to a meeting on 29th October in the Clarion hotel at 7:30pm.
Since the last meeting substantial progress has been made in verifying the assets which were subject to the auditor’s qualified accounts. A new revised fixed asset register is currently under construction for presentation to the auditors in time for the meeting on 29th with a view to addressing the issues which led to the audit qualification. We will publish the redrafted accounts as soon as they come available from the auditors.
On the lead up to the last meeting there was some confusion about proxy voting. A Proxy Vote is a method designed to enable a delegate who cannot attend a delegate meeting to express their vote through a third party. If you are unable to attend the meeting consider contacting someone who will be in attendance and ask them if they will act on your behalf and vote for you in accordance with your wishes. All proxy votes must be registered with the Canoeing Ireland Office at least 48 hours before the meeting. These can be sent in by email with an attached scanned image of the proxy form, by post or fax.
I've been personally have been very involved in addressing the issues raised and I'm satisfied the revised accounts will be acceptable to CI members.
As I said I'm somewhat limited in what I can say but if you (CI Member) have any questions I will do my very best to answer them. You can email me [email protected] or 087 3545042
The passing of these accounts by the membership is imperative to the continuing operation of CI . Once the revised and audited accounts are available to me and ratified by the board I will post them online.
