RSPBA Holds Extraordinary General Meeting

The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association (RSPBA) held an extraordinary general meeting on October 13, 2001, at the organization’s headquarters in Glasgow to discuss the proposals set out by the Millennium Review Implementation Group (MRIG).

The membership of the RSPBA officially approved that the proposed new RSPBA management structure will be formally introduced, and that association will be an official company limited by guarantee from the next RSPBA AGM in March 2002.

It was also agreed that nominations for appointments to the new Board of Management and Branch Trustee Council will be taken from RSPBA Branches so that elections can be held at the AGM.

Significant progress was also made towards developing an RSPBA business plan and a marketing, public relations and media strategy. “Options” are being explored to secure additional income for the association.

“The outcome of the EGM represents a major step forward towards implementation of the Millennium Review Report,” said Alistair Aitken, MRIG chairman.
