The 46th Annual General Meeting

On Saturday 19th March 2022, the Coastguard Association hosted its 46th Annual General Meeting.

Taking place in the Skegness Masonic Centre, the national committee were joined by Coastguard Rescue Officers from Skegness and Wrangle Coastguard Rescue Teams as well as several other members from across the country.

The minutes of the previous AGM, which last year took place virtually via zoom, were reviewed and agreed. During the meeting, updates were provided by the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer, Welfare, Secretary, Public Relations, Coastline Magazine and central branch before branch updates were provided by those in attendance.

Following the updates, Stuart Arundel was re-elected as the Chairman and will remain in office for the forthcoming five years. The committee said a fond farewell to the current Treasurer, Alan Fisher, who has been in post for the last 14 years and has played a significant role in getting the Coastguard Association to its current stable and solid position, with the committee voting in Steve Brookes as the new Treasurer.

The Chairman’s Award was presented to the Hastings and East Sussex Branch for their fundraising work.

The date for the 47th AGM was set for Saturday 25th March 2023 with Hastings and East Sussex Branch agreeing to host with a venue to be confirmed.

A massive thank you to everyone for their continued support of the Coastguard Association. The Coastguard Association is the charity which helps Coastguards and their dependents in their time of need, with every person involved in the Coastguard Association doing so on a voluntary basis and giving up their own time to help those in need of assistance.
