Chesil Sailability Annual General Meeting 2020.
The last Chesil Sailability Annual General Meeting was held on 9th April 2019. Our Constitution requires that we hold the 2020 AGM within 15 months of that date. However, in the current Covid 19 circumstances, The Charity Commission have provided some flexibility to this, making 30th September our new deadline and have made provision for meetings to be held on-line or by telephone.
The Board of Trustees, whilst preferring to hold the AGM in the usual way, have agreed to hold the 2020 AGM as a virtual meeting, to ensure it takes place during our current season. The Trustees propose to make changes to our Constitution, via an EGM, to enable a longer time period between AGM’s, in exceptional circumstances and to hold meetings electronically.
Therefore an Extraordinary General Meeting will take place via electronic means at 7PM on Tuesday 28th July 2020.
This will be immediately followed by the 2020 Annual General Meeting at 7.10pm on Tuesday 28th July 2020.
NOTICE is hereby given that an EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING of Chesil Sailability will be held online at 7.00 pm on Tuesday 28th July 2020. (Login details to follow.)

Prospective Trustees Statement: Louis Gale.
I joined Chesil Sailability in 2013 and fell in love with sailing. I’ve grown to love the sport and made some really good friends along the way. I want to become a Trustee to inspire more disabled people and show them that anything is possible.

Prospective Trustees Statement: Hugh De Iong.
As a family, we were inspired by the 2012 Paralympic Games both in London and here in Weymouth & Portland, and I wanted to help create an ongoing legacy so that the excellent facilities and waters at the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy could continue to provide accessible sailing. I was a co-founder of Chesil Sailability, and have been a Trustee since Chesil Sailability started.
I currently work for Dorset Council, where I am involved in economic & community development. I bring skills in fundraising, Business planning and an understanding of governance. I also have a very practical involvement in Sailability sessions, as one of the Duty Officers, or otherwise generally on Pontoons or as a Skipper.
I am also a dinghy sailor, sailing from Castle Cove Sailing Club, where I take part in club racing.

Prospective Trustees Statement: David Griffith
In February 2017 I was asked by the Board of Trustees to join as a co-opted member, since that time I have been acting as the chair of the Board of Trustees. I have been working with the other board members to develop a set of standards and policies for this group to ensure that every role is clearly defined and that Chesil Sailability is able to continue to improve.
My previous experience leading large projects has shown me the importance of combining clear standards and procedures with transparent and open leadership that values each persons contribution.
I have now been Chair of the Chesil Sailability Board of Trustees since February 2017 and regularly act as one of the Duty Officers at Chesil Sailability sailing sessions. I am now also the Chair of the Board of Directors at The Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy and will work with the other Chesil Sailability trustees to avoid any conflicts of interest.
