Annual General Meeting -19th June 2010

After a progressive and developing first year, Andalucia Bird Society is to hold their first AGM on the 19th June. With members living throughout the region, it was always going to be difficult to choose a suitable venue that would suit all. So, after due consideration, we have decided to go ahead and have our AGM immediately after lunch following the June Field Meeting. At the moment the lunch will be taken either in Marchena or La Lantejuela, whichever is best on the day, however this should present no problems to those attending on the day.

For details of the Field Meeting i.e. Meeting Point, Route, Time etc, please click-on the following link: http://www.andaluciabirdsociety.org/forum/index.php/topic,328.0.html (see post number 12)

The first year of activities for ABS has largely concentrated on establishing our Forum and Website, hopefully you will all have appreciated this mammoth undertaking and be pleased with the results. Of course the development of both the Forum and Website is on-going and projects currently under construction include ‘Comparative Field Guide’ (a guide to identifying difficult species in Andalucia) and an account for each species recorded in Andalucia (a huge undertaking). As time allows we are also planning to include a best birding site guide for each of the 8 provinces in the region! We also hope to eventually publish the website in Spanish for those members and visitors who are native to Spain.

With so many other projects needing the attention of the society, we propose to increase the number of committee members and have introduced ‘new’ positions, which we hope you will consider proposing yourself for? Posts/Officers for election at our AGM are listed below:

ELECTION OF OFFICERS

President. Current Juan Onate – proposed Juan Onate

Chairman. New position – proposed John Brooks

Secretary. Current Alfredo Carrasco – proposed Alfredo Carrasco

Treasurer. Current Pieter Verheij – proposed Pieter Verheij

Membership Secretary. New position – please consider applying

Survey & Projects Officer. New position – please consider applying

Article & Newsletter Editor. Current Peter Jones – proposed Peter Jones

Conservation & Education Officer. New position – please consider applying

Press & Public Relations Officer. New position – please consider applying

Recorder. New position – proposed Peter Jones

Sub committee of above includes Rarities Committee currently made-up of Peter Jones, Steve Lister, Paul French. We are seeking one other member to be part of this committee, so if you think you are qualified please apply!

Webpage and Forum. Pieter Verheij and Peter Jones
