SCOTTISH GOLF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING - Proposal to raise per capita subscription withdrawn pending further consultation

At the Scottish Golf Annual General Meeting, held on Sunday the 5th of March 2023, the proposal to raise the per capita subscription from £14.50 to £15.75 next year was surprisingly withdrawn before the meeting.

A statement was later issued by Scottish Golf regarding the withdrawn motion, which is reproduced below.

Dear Club, County and Area representative, 

Thank you to those of you who were in attendance at the Scottish Golf AGM today. 

A full note of proceedings, including the results of voting, will be sent to you in due course. 
However, we would like to make you aware that Resolution 10 was withdrawn by the Board – that being: 
THAT the affiliation fee, based on membership numbers at 30 September 2023 and invoiced for payment by 31 March 2024, be collected on a per capita basis of £15.75 per playing member, be approved.

There will now follow a period of around 6 months' consultation with Areas, Counties, and Clubs, after which the Board may decide to offer another opportunity to vote in September 2022. 
All other resolutions were voted on as normal today. 

Many thanks again to all who participated today in person or through their proxy. 

Kind regards,
Scottish Golf
