ARCO’s Officers, Regional Representatives, Trustees and Honorary Auditor were unanimously elected for the coming 12 months, for appointees, see the overview of the AGM.

The President welcomed the newly elected Officers and Regional Representatives, and paid tribute to those Officers and Regional Representatives who retired at the AGM.  The election of 8 new members to the EXCOM represents a 42% turn-over of the committee and reflects one of the outcomes arising from ARCO’s 2019 Relevance Workshop.

The President formally acknowledged the guidance, advice, and support which he personally received from the Vice President, Col George Kerton, who was stepping aside, having served two Presidents and the EXCOM during the past 5 years.  Col Kerton was subsequently elected as a Representative for the Eastern Region.

Executive Committee Motion

A motion consolidating ARCO’s Rules (V 02 Oct 20) was unanimously adopted.
