The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the yearly opportunity for full NISA members and groups to have their say on the sport, and how their National Governing Body is run.
This year was vital, as big changes are being proposed to support NISA's 10-year Strategic Plan, and meet requirements of the government regarding sports governance.
Without these changes, it will be impossible for the sport to move forwards, grow and flourish. By voting in the changes to our Articles of Association, skaters will be contributing to the future of their sport.
Great opportunities lie ahead for ice skating in the UK, but we need the support of our members to reach them.
All documentation, including the Articles of Association with proposed changes, can be found in this section of the website.
Any Full or Life Member with at least 13 months' membership at the date of the AGM, can vote. Associate Members are unable to vote.
Affiliated Clubs and Associations of NISA can also vote.
You can cast your vote by attending the 2017 AGM or by proxy voting - this is the manner of voting when it cannot be done in person.
Through Proxy voting a member can cast their vote on matters proposed for the AGM through either the Chair or another eligible member.
Proxy Voting Forms will also be placed on the website in advance of the AGM, and can be completed and sent to the Election Auditors, Botham Accounting, to arrive at least 2 clear working days in advance of the AGM.
This year the AGM will be taking place on Saturday the 12th August 2017 at the Jury's Inn, Nottingham.
It will commence at 12 noon, and we recommend attendees arrive by 11:30am.
You don't need to register your attendance, simply arrive on the day. If you are unable to attend, please ensure you have filled out a proxy form to cast your vote.

We collected your queries at NISA Information Days regarding the AGM and new changes to the organisation, and turned them into an FAQ section. Have a read, we'll be adding more shortly.
Didn't manage to make it to one of our three Information Days? Don't worry. Here's the slides, have a read through and catch up.
Understandably, there have been members asking just what the governance changes are, both those already being put into effect by NISA, and those needing approval at the AGM to change the Articles of Association.
