Annual General Meeting -9th July 2011

After a progressive and developing first couple of years, Andalucia Bird Society is to hold their second AGM on the 9th July. 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 prior to lunch following the July Field Meeting at the laguna Fuente de Piedra. At the moment the lunch will be taken in the village at Fuente de Piedra so presenting no logistical 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,498.0.html

The second year of activities for ABS has largely concentrated on establishing our Forum and Website, but the main emphasis has been to establish provincial bird reporting facilities. The task has been undertaken by our Survey and Projects Officer, David Hird. For those unfamiliar with this project please see our main website under the lefthand banner ‘Resources’ and click-on Bird Sightings. Of course the development of both the Forum, Website and the bird sightings project 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 (already begun under the Bird Sightings module/project)! We also still 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:


President. Current Juan Onate (retiring) – proposed Alfredo Carrasco

Chairman. Peter Jones – proposed Peter Jones

Secretary. Current Alfredo Carrasco – retiring and seeking election as President
Nominations/volunteers/suggestions please for new Secretary

Treasurer. Current Pieter Verheij – proposed Pieter Verheij

Membership Secretary. Robert Wright – proposed Robert Wright

Survey & Projects Officer. David Hird – proposed David Hird

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

Conservation & Education Officer. Jesus Contreras – proposed Jesus Contreras

Press & Public Relations Officer. Alexandra Farrell – proposed Alexandra Farrell

*NEW* Recorder. Proposed David Hird and Bob Wright (joint responsibility)

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

After the election of officers our treasurer will present our latest annual accounts.

Any other business. If any member wishes to include subjects for discussion then please advise pr.p.jones'AT'gmail'DOT'com before 1st July 2011.
