New Company Will Promote Sea Angling

Oct 18,2006 NFSA

The National Federation of Sea Anglers (NFSA) is to streamline its management and decision-making process by becoming a limited company.

Subject to legal consents it will become the National Federation of Sea Anglers Limited from January 1 next, with a board of up to ten directors as the executive body.

The standing committee will continue to represent members and clubs in the NFSA’s 13 divisions, as an implementation and consultative body to the board.

The change has been approved by the existing standing committee following endorsement at the annual meeting in May this year. 

Details were discussed at length before and since then and there has been agreement at all stages.

“The change was essential to improve our decision-making and to get on with the development of our sport which is already worth £1 billion a year to the national economy,” said Richard Ferré chairman of the federation.

“The world of sea angling is increasingly complex. 

We are involved today with central and local government and international competitions on a scale unthought of a few years ago.“

The move was also recommended by Sport England which provides the NFSA with some grant aid for agreed development projects.

Full details including the rules (only slightly changed from the current ones) and the company’s articles of association were circulated to all divisions on August 30, for consultation with members and clubs.

The directors will be the chairman, chief executive (currently the development officer) and treasurer of the NFSA, four appointed by the standing committee from its own members, and up to three more appointed by the board to ensure all areas of work are represented at board level.

At least two directors appointed by the standing committee must be present at all board meetings. 

The directors will liaise and consult with all committees and sub committees and on major issues with the membership, before making decisions.
