As previously notified, the SFCA AGM will take place in the Kirkintilloch Miners Club on Thursday 30th March 2017, commencing at 2000 hrs.  The meeting is open to all individual, club and corporate members of the SFCA.

The SFCA has not received any proposals for constitutional change and the meeting will therefore focus on election of officers, approval of targets and priorities for action for the Annual Business Plan and reports from Federation Officers.  The Chairman will also provide an update of the current position regarding Angling Scotland Ltd, the newly formed single umbrella structure for Scottish Angling, and the proposed procedure for transfer of certain central common functions from the existing Scottish Governing Bodies to the new organisation.  This update will be followed by a consultation paper which will be published in the next few months and it is likely that the SFCA will call an Extraordinary General Meeting to approve the transfer of functions and adoption of common policies for Scottish Angling early in the summer.

All paid up member clubs are requested to confirm their email contacts to the Chairman at as soon as possible.

sportscotland have scheduled a meeting to discuss funding of the proposed 4 Year One Plan for Scottish Angling on the evening of Tuesday 21st March.  Following this meeting the Executive Committee with review proposed targets for 2017/18 and start to develop the detailed Annual Business Plan.  To assist us in the vital piece of work we need your input.  The link below will take you to a document containing what the Executive Committee see as our key targets and priorities for action for 2017/18.  But, this is your plan, for your sport, and it should reflect what is important to you.  We would therefore urge you to have a look at these broad targets and the priorities and come back to us if you think we have missed.
