Members are hereby notified that the Annual General Meeting of the Contract Bridge Association of Ireland will take place in the Castletroy Park Hotel, Limerick, starting at 2 p.m. All paid-up members are entitled to attend. We are hoping to restore the traditional post-meeting game of bridge this season if we can.

Members may also submit motions (formally “resolutions”) to the AGM. Any such motion must be signed by a proposer and a seconder (each of whom must be a paid-up member, or a club or region of the CBAI), and must be delivered in writing (which includes via email) to the Honorary Secretary or another Officer of the Association, no less than six weeks before the date of the AGM. The closing date for receipt of such motions for this year is thus midnight on Friday 19 May. The Honorary Secretary’s contact details are: Mrs Linda O’Riordan, Lissacreasig, Macroom, Co Cork, P12 WE09; email.

The AGM will also elect the officers of the Association for the 2023/24 season. In two cases the incumbents are eligible and willing to continue – Linda O’Riordan as Honorary Secretary, and Brendan Martin as Honorary Treasurer. Sadly, Emer Kee has reached the end of her term as Vice President, and a new volunteer will be needed for that role. Nominations for any of these positions, suitably proposed and seconded by paid-up members of the Association, or a club or region of the CBAI, must be received by the Honorary Secretary (details as above) no later than midnight on Friday 9 June.
