Welcome to the October issue
As we move into autumn the flurry of sales activity eases, and any troublesome deals can hopefully be brought to a conclusion.
September’s weather was unusually good, extending the season and providing a good base for the Southampton International Boat Show, which by all accounts seems to have been good for boat sales. We have also had Association information on display at the Scotland Boat Show at Kip Marina, thanks to Michael Schmidt & Partner.
We are preparing for the AGMs – if you would like to stand for your association’s committee please let me know as soon as possible so you can be included in the voting list that goes out with the papers. Sitting on a committee does give a good insight into the work of the associations.
Details of the AGMs, as well as the training day and Members’ Dinner have been sent out using the CRM system with a detailed form and the ability to pay direct from the form. We have piloted this system with several events and this is the first time we have used it for a whole-Membership event.
The event includes the opportunity for a tour of Peter Freebody boatyard and a visit to the Henley River and Rowing Museum, alongside the trainings, dinner and AGMs. Please book promptly as this greatly assists in the organisation of the events. We look forward to seeing you in November. Best wishes,
Chief Executive Officer of YBDSA, ABYA and YDSA
