2017 BC Coastal Zone Director Report
Hello Everyone
The BC Coastal Zone's membership is up 3% or 44 members over what it was at time last year. We currently have 52 Junior and 1317 open for a total of 1369 members. The 2016 yearend membership was 1381 so hopefully we will continue to see some positive growth for 2017.
We have 6 new clubs in the zone: GABRIOLA BALSA BUSTERS (817,) PENDER ISLAND ELECTRIC FLYERS (818,) SALT SPRING ISLAND RC FLYERS (821,) BROKEN PROPS (827,) ALDERGROVE TAILDRAGGERS (823) and VICFLYERS (846.)
Gabriola Island, Pender Island, Salt Spring Island and Broken Props have all been "club / non clubs" for years but have decided to become affiliate members because of the Transport Canada Regulations. The Aldergrove Taildraggers and the VicFlyers have formed affiliate MAAC Clubs and are working towards acquiring flying sites.
The BC Coastal zone has a had a few field issues over this past year but all seem to have been dealt effectively by the clubs executive committees.
The MAAC Committees and Board of Directors have been very active this past year both in their zones and on the ongoing MAAC Strategic Business Plan, Transport Canada Regulations and the influx of membership and rules and regulations pertaining to Muli-Rotor model aircraft.
We believe that 2018 will be a very exciting year for MAAC, and that all the positive work that has been done by all involved will make our hobby grow and help us become more inclusive across Canada. Cheers Bill Rollins MAAC 27460-L ZD-H

Resolutions , Recommendations and Directives:
ZD Bill Rollins explained to everyone the differences between Resolutions and Recommendations and that the way we have traditionally brought Resolutions to the floor of our Annual Zone Meetings is under review and probably will change for the next AZM.
ZD Bill Rollins requested that any Resolutions and Recommendations be forwarded to the Constitution Adviser Committee so that the proper legal wording be used. In the past many of these motions from AZM's ended up being turned down because they were not worded correctly, and that it could take a few years to get them right. If the intent of the Motions are taken to the Constitution Advisory Committee for proper wording this would stop this problem.
Everyone agreed.
Resolutions:
1- That the name of Zone H be changed from BC Coastal Zone H to "South West British Columbia" Zone H.
Moved by Larry Lewin 10275,
Seconded by Bruce Duncan 15650-L,

Recommendations:
1- That MAAC offers a 5 year membership at a reduced rate.

2- That a MAAC Club's Main field location be named instead of the Club Contacts location (City address) on the "View the Clubs affiliated with MAAC" web page.
Moved by Larry Rousselle 30252-L
Seconded by Ian Munro 89777
Carried - Unanimous
Directive:
There was much discussion and a defeated recommendation on the formation of a Front End Website Committee to work with the Back End Website Database Committee. The discussion ended up being a "Directive" from the membership for Zone Director Bill to discuss the issues with the MAAC Executive Committee and the Website Chair.
This directive had unanimous support from the membership.
