The AGM of the GOA committee was held at AAA house on 5 August 2018 and a new Committee was elected un-opposed. The new committee would like to thank all the members who attended the AGM and we hope to receive your support during our tenure.
On the day, a Special Resolution was passed “resolution without dissent” and the members of GOAWA present at the meeting ratified:
