MINUTES of the 2010 Annual General Meeting of the Formula Experience Class

The following votes were recorded:
With 11 votes in the room the meeting was declared quorate.
Apologies - From Marc Cardon who sent a detailed letter of support for the class, of which he has been an active member since its beginning.
There were no matters arising.
3. Chairman's Report & Financial Statement.
Remi Vila reported that the class was growing. There were now 11 member national Associations, a slight increase on last year. Expansion of the class had been greatest in South America, and owed a lot to the dynamic support given by the national distributors.
For the class to expand further, particularly in Europe and Asia, it would require a change to a "one design" format, and the next item on the agenda, class rules, would define the future of the class.
The 2010 championship saw a welcome return to competitor entries not achieved since in 2005. The increased membership and championship entry would ensure the class was once again starting to "pay its way" within the IWA.The 2009 IWA Accounts were published on the IWA website
