Abta has announced the reappointment of Katrina Cliffe, Kathryn Darbandi and Amanda Campbell to its board of directors.

The reappointments were confirmed at the association’s Annual General Meeting on Thursday.

Abta members also voted to pass all seven proposed resolutions at the meeting.

The first resolution confirmed that Moore Stephens have been reappointed as Abta auditors.

The second resolution updated the association’s articles to reflect the changes in regulation following the introduction of the new package travel and linked travel arrangements in July.

The third resolution allowed Abta to carry out increased checks on persons acting on behalf of Members such as outside sales representatives, homeworkers or the owners or managers of managed branches.

The fourth resolution allowed Abta to require contributions towards shortfall security arrangements for all types of business conducted by members.

This reflected the different categorisations of business under the change in EU package regulations.

The fifth resolution reflected the change in regulation from July, which means members conducting retail business might be required to hold an Atol in respect of that business.

The sixth resolution removed the right to appeal against a termination of membership for failure to pay subscriptions.

And the seventh resolution amended the requirement to hold an election arising on the retirement of an elected director where a further election for that same position might then be required within three months.

By extending the period to six months, the obligation remains to keep the position filled but reduces the chances of needing to hold more than two elections in the same year.
