AGM Agenda 2022

AGM Agenda 2022


1. Intro ​​​

Gentlemen.  Welcome to what will be our third online interactive Minewarfare Association (MWA) Annual General Meeting (AGM).

During the recent Covid pandemic and associated lockdown periods our Annual General Meetings were difficult to hold live so we utilised out website to hold an interactive event online. While this was very successful in endorsing our business and in some cases reaching out a wider and differing audience it also had its limitation in not targeting those that do not use online methods but who actively support the MWA during the year. 

It had been our aim for the 2022 AGM to be held live as part of the Annual reunion in Blackpool. However low attendance at the event did not make it a viable option. So once again this year we will hold the AGM online with our aim to include the 2023 AGM as part of the 2023 reunion.

Below is the proposed agenda for the AGM which will be published on the MWA Website during the week of 01 August 22. Please ensure you are in possession of your password and login details in plenty of time to avoid disappointment. If you have any queries, then please contact the Webmaster or Membership Sec for access. 

Further details on the AGM will be provided closer to the date. In the meantime, If you have an item to be included in any other business (AOB) or are interested in the Chairman’s Post then please contact me or a committee member by COP on 22 July 22 with the name of your proposer, Seconder and any supporting information.

The MWA has three accounts, the main account securely holds the bulk of the association money, the main accounts are as follows;

The Mine Warfare Association

The Sweepstore fund

The Minewarfare Arboretum

As of the end of July the Mine Warfare Association Account has £7,706.18.

The Sweepstore fund currently sits at 1p, it is kept this low as it allows me to easily check if payments have been made for items in the Sweepstore, as soon as money clears into this account it is transfered to the main account.

The Arboretum account has £544.90 which is all donations towards the MK17 mine to be located at the National Arboretum. Some donations have come from the go fund me page, the rest has come from the raffle profits at the last MWA dinner.
