The AGM was briefed on the review that had been conducted by ARCO.  Issues addressed in the review include the Association’s future Strategy, Structures and Activities.  A total of 930 retired officers were surveyed.  Responses were received from forty-five percent, including 136 non-members.  More than 80 serving officers were also consulted at pre-retirement courses.  The findings proposed new priorities for ARCO: these are Pensions, Information Dissemination, Representation, Health Services and Social Welfare issues.  The development of an enhanced web site and a new electronic means of communication were seen priorities. 

As a result of work conducted by the Executive Committee a new Vision, Mission, Objectives and Goals are proposed for ARCO.  A rules sub committee will be established in the coming year to review and make proposals, which will be presented at next years AGM for the approval of members.  ARCO is also developing a financial plan to advance its new priorities and to this end it was proposed that the annual subscription be raised by 10 euro to 25 euro per annum to accommodate these changes.  The meeting agreed to this increase with immediate effect.

A full account of the AGM proceedings will appear in the Spring Newsletter.
