Notice of Extraordinary General Meeting

to consider the future of the YHBBA

Saturday 19th Jan 1030 Walton Village Hall (near Wetherby)


Dear All


Over the past years the YHBBA has been struggling to engage with its membership and we are at the point where some serious consideration needs to be given to the future of the organisation.  As you will be aware the YHHBA has taken many functions over the years, organising training courses and representing its members on a wider stage.  Currently its activities are focussed on 2 main areas  - representation sending representatives to the Northern and Yorkshire Area committees and organising contests, currently the Annual contest, held in Dewsbury, Easingwold March contest and Hardraw Scar.  However the pool of people who regularly attend delegates meetings and help organise the contests is small and dwindling, particularly as some YHBBA stalwarts are approaching the time when they wish to step back from their organising duties.  Consequently we need to consider the future of the association so if it is no longer desired by the Bands then it can be wound up in a controlled and meaningful way.  The meeting will consider the following proposals:


The future of the YHBBA should be

1. It continues in its current form

2. It changes its structure focussing solely on organising its events, delegating responsibility to event leads and having executive meetings just twice per year

3. That the association is wound up


In order for either option 1 or 2 to be considered then we would need a further 6 volunteers to join the organising committee at our AGM later in the year. If such volunteers are not forthcoming then the wind up of the association would be initiated.


I would like to invite you to come and represent your band in these important discussions at the EGM in Walton Village Hall (near Wetherby) on the 19th of January at 1030


If you have any comments prior to the meeting please do not hesitate to get in touch with me  


With best regards


Stuart Warriner
