ATA held their 34th Annual General Meeting

The 34th Annual General Meeting of the Anglo Turkish Association of Northern Cyprus (ATA) took place at the Arkin University of Creative Art and Design under the watchful eye of its founder Erbil Arkin. Addressing the meeting, Erbil welcomed the ATA to the university saying that it was an honour for the university to host such a prestigious Northern Cyprus organisation, stating, ”The ATA has a special place in the hearts of people in the TRNC, so both myself and the university are pleased to be able to help this great association whenever possible”.

The meeting was carried out by the Davan Chairman for the day, Richard Bradley, who undertook his duties with the expertise of a seasoned professional, ably assisted by Gülter Kuran and Caroline Houghton.

Following informative speeches by the ATA chairman Philp Lloyd and its treasurer Tim Morgan, along with the usual business matters of any AGM, a new ATA committee was elected (details can be found on the ATA’s website), and the meeting was concluded with a presentation of flowers by Philip to retiring long standing committee members Caroline Houghton and Nicky Montgomery, both of whom were equally surprised and delighted by such a gesture.

After the AGM, many members dined in the university’s canteen where the topic of conversation was centred around the hospitality given to them by the ARUCAD university, along with the way the information given to them by Philip and Tim during the meeting, in particular about its ‘donations to Good Causes’ in the coming year was done in such an easy to understand manner.

    • JOHN, on behalf of ALL members of the ATA, thank you for your kind comments and good wishes for our great association. When a well-respected influencer such as your good self passes comment, not only does the ATA take notice but so too does everyone else in the TRNC.
      The ATA is part of the fabric of Northern Cyprus and intends to be so many years to come. Fingers crossed, just like last year this coming year will also be another good one for the ATA and judging by the start to the year we’ve had already with membership numbers up, finances up, general interest in the ATA up, all our activities selling out fast and with large waiting lists, our public profile up, things are starting to blossom for the association.
      Once again, a BIG thank you for your comments.
      Philip
      ATA Chairman
