Update On The Recent Extraordinary General Meeting


As I am sure, you all are aware, an EGM was held recently to consider the future direction of the

BKKS and how it may best serve the Koi hobby in the UK and especially its members and Club

sections. I am pleased to say the meeting was well attended and very productive.


It was clear that something needs to be done about communication in terms of what the BKKS

currently does for the hobby and its members, and to this end we will be producing a regular

newsletter, which will be emailed to all members. This will include information on the main

Committee meetings and the Show Committee, when appropriate, as well as information from the

JSC and HSC, plus important and relevant information for members.


The first Newsletter will include information on all the issues raised at the EGM, which we would like

members to comment on before we start moving forward with implementation. I believe it is very

important that all members have the opportunity to have their say on all the points raised at the

EGM, so we can be clear on how the BKKS develops in the future.


I am also pleased to say that the Main Committee now has four additional members and our first

meeting was very productive, with a number of interesting points being raised, along with additional

offers of help in moving them forward.


As a first step, can I encourage all members to make sure George our Membership Secretary has

your up to date email address, as this is going to be a key element in making sure we can improve

our communication. The newsletter and future member information will all be distributed by email,

because, as I am sure you are aware, printing and postage costs would be prohibitive.


If you are not currently a member of the BKKS, could I actively encourage you to join and be part of

the future developments. Information on how to join can be found on the BKKS website.


On a personal level I am very pleased and optimistic about the level of response and suggestions

which have been made about the possible future direction of the BKKS and I would like to thank all

those who attended the EGM, as well as those members who emailed us their comments and

thoughts prior to the meeting.



Kind regards

Cliff Beckett

BKKS Chairman
