IODA AGM PROPOSALS

PROPOSAL BY THE IODA EXECUTIVE TO AMEND IODA ARTICLES OF

ASSOCIATION, 3 MEMBERSHIP

DELETE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF 3(a) MEMBERSHIP:

a) Full Members (hereinafter called members)

The National Authority or Class Organisation in any country using the International Optimist

Dinghy in their work for junior sailors can be a member of IODA. In a country where

Optimists are sailed in only one sailing club, that club may be a member until such time

as other clubs in that country sail Optimists.

REPLACE WITH NEW FIRST PARAGRAPH:

“a) Full Members (hereinafter called members)

The IODA accepts as full members one organisation using the International Optimist

Dinghy per country as follows:

i) National Optimist Associations (NCAs) controlled by Optimist owners or their

legal guardians. Such NCAs shall where possible be affiliated to the relevant

ISAF Member National Authority (MNA)

ii) ISAF Member National Authorities (MNAs) where there is no National

Optimist Association

iii) A sailing club in a country where there is only one club where Optimists are

sailed, until such time as other clubs in that country sail Optimists.

Acceptance of an organisation as a member and renewal of that membership are at the

discretion of the Executive. Such decisions may be appealed to the next AGM.”
