2020 Membership Renewal / Applications Now Due.....

Annual subscription to the Federation falls due for renewal / application on the 1st January 2020. 2020 has been a challenging year for the Federation with SportScotland continuing not to provide funding to any of the angling bodies in Scotland. In addition we continue to operate with a restricted Executive and the loss of our long standing Secretary, Ian Napier to retirement has made things particularly difficult.

However the Executive have been working hard in the background to keep the Federation in a good position, running competitions, attending International events, undertaking required training (from SportsScotland) and assisting in environmental campaigns etc. Much of this work is unseen and with a small executive, can be a challenge to fit in to everyone’s schedules. But there is much more we would like and need to do as we move forward over the coming years to improve our Federation and promote and protect our sport.

I would like to see the Federation become more active on Environmental issues and grass roots development and I hope to include Specific updates on these areas in future newsletters. Again if any members would like to share any ideas in these areas or feel they can assist in any way then please do not hesitate to get in touch. I hope you will continue to support our Federations work and at the AGM I hope to give a detailed breakdown on what we have achieved to date and how we intend to move forward our Federation on in 2020.

In 2020 we are looking at migrating to an online membership platform which is also being used by the SFCA and SANA. This would allow easier management of your membership with less man handling for both the exec and members. You can view this platform at https://adbos.azolve.com/Account.mvc/Login?ReturnUrl=%2f .2 members of the Exec have recently being trained in the use of the site and will be evaluating its potential for the Federation,
