Notes from the 2015 AGM Held at Orchard Road, Birstall Leicester at 11am

IAWA (UK) has 115 members currently. After paying the bills for the latest drug testing and
the December Journal the bank account should have about £4,200 left in it. Nine Drug Tests were
carried out in 2015 and all came back negative result. The 2016 fixture list was discussed and
finalised along with the lifts for the 2016 All Round Postal League, and these will be advertised
shortly. It was decided that the IAWA(UK) All Round Postal League will be free, there will be
no need for members entering teams to pay £1 per person per leg. The bank account being
healthy it was decided that there was no need to increase the annual membership for 2016. A
discussion took place on the awarding of the annual trophy supplied by Health and Strength
Magazine (which is presented for the best performance by a Junior lifter) The Award will be
presented and announced in January. The committee were informed that the work on the joint
Rule Book is progressing, and it is hoped that soon there will be a unified Rule Book for IAWA. A
number of topics and subjects were discussed at length under ĎAny Other Businessí. There
being no other nominations for office, and all current members working in post prepared to stand
for another 12 months, the committee were re-elected en-bloc. The Chairman, President and
Secretary / Treasurer and other officers of the IAWA(UK) Committee wish youall a very
Merry Xmas!
