     Annual General Meeting 2015 - Return to Blackpool in 2016

The Association staged its 44th AGM at Tiffany's Hotel Blackpool Sunday the 22nd of March.                      Individual sports sections staged their own A.G.M's. on the Saturday and the whole of the Association came together on the Sunday morning.

Main item on the Agenda was the recommendation from the Management Board/ Sports Council that Rule 13 of our Constitution be changed. Rule 13 had been suspended for several years, it relates to the eligibility of membership and participation in the N.P.T.S.A. competitions. The recommendation was submitted and passed unanimously that the Rule change be adopted. Changes in the industry and some decline in numbers warranted a formal approach in modernising the eligibility of our members. Associate membership has been introduced under a strict guideline of a maximum percentage of up to forty percent. Competitions were given the opportunity and flexibility to adopt what they deemed fit for their needs and there are variations between them. Some competitions for example Football have declined to introduce any acceptance of associate members. Another example,  Darts have in recent years successfully operated on a twenty percent associate participation. Each competition has determined their criteria and this will be monitored by the Sports Council. There is acceptance of and a guideline to the eligibility of the new Associate member the rule states a)  so as to apply only to specific categories including, by example but not limited to, blood relatives of eligible participants and employees of contractors working solely for member companies. Please note the term not limited to.  If there are any queries or questions you may have please speak to the relative Sports Secretary.  A full copy of the N.P.T.S.A. Constitution is published on this site.

The business element of the weekend aside Tiffany's Hotel in partnership with IOW Tours and the Management Board provided an excellent weekends stay with quality entertainment and cabaret on both the Friday & Saturday evening. The decision to return to Blackpool for the 45th AGM in 2016 reflected the level and quality of the stay. It is certainly an excellent venue and was enjoyed by all.

Full Details of the 2016 with the booking form are now published and can be found through the link at the top of the page.

I am proud to announce that the Winner of the Chairmans' Cup in 2015 was Lewis Brown Vice Chairman of the Association and Secretary of Ten Pin Bowling.                                                                                          He was awarded the cup for outstanding service and loyalty to the NPTSA. Lewis has been Secretary of TenPin for 40 years and, as was discovered at this years AGM, attended all 44 of the Associations AGM's. Two outstanding achievemnts among many that I believe will never be bettered. Congratulations Lewis - Well Done
