Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Dear President and Secretary of UKKCA Units,

   Subject: Selection of UKKCYL Unit Directors.

 I  am hoping you and your family had a blessed Christmas and are preparing for the New Year.

Firstly, may I take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the current UKKCYL unit directors for providing a very successful and eventful 2 years for our KCYL members. Without the support and commitment of the directors, UKKCYL members would never have accomplished so much in the last 2 years.

After completion of the most rewarding two years of UKKCYL, now it is time to select your new KCYL unit directors. I hereby remind you to follow the UKKCYL byelaw whilst selecting your unit directors. For your convenience, I have included the relevant sections of the bye law underneath.

 Section C: Directors (National / Unit)

 

1.       National Chaplain shall see the appointment of UKKCYL National Directors – one from female and other one from male. Chaplain shall seek a written reference of character and conduct from their local UKKCA Unit. The appointment shall have approval of the Archbishop of Kottayam Archdiocese.

 

2.      The National Directors shall give guidelines and directions to UKKCYL members and assist the chaplain in discharging his responsibilities for the over all functions of the UKKCYL.

 

3.      The selection of the unit directors shall be by the UKKCA unit general body – one from gents and one from ladies.

4.      UKKCA unit Secretary shall send the names of the unit directors to national chaplain.

5.      Directors shall be minimum 35 years of age and they shall have a proven record of mature behaviour and organisational skill.

6.      Directors should have enhanced CRB. The UKKCA unit shall be responsible for the CRB clearance of the concerned.

7.      Director’s working periods shall be for two years and not more than two consecutive terms.

8.      The directors shall abide by the children’s act of 1989 and any amendment passed by the Act of Parliament to function as safe guarding children board.

9.      The Directors shall attend all the executive meetings.

 

The newly appointed directors would assume office for two years i.e., January 2013 to January 2015. Selection of the Unit Directors should be made only by the UKKCA Local Unit’s Executive body or General body, and not by the KCYL members. It is very important to make sure that they practise Catholic faith and lead an exemplary family life. You also have to be well aware that they uphold values, principles, traditions, customs and culture of our Knanaya Catholic Community. At this point, may I also request you to remember that KCYL directors have to travel quite a lot with KCYL members around UK for various camps and activities, giving up their own time and family for even 2-3 days to attend camps.

 

 If your current directors have only been holding office for 1 year, then they could either continue for another year or it is up to the discretion of the unit’s General Body or Executive committee under such circumstances to elect new directors.  Please make sure you send the names of your 2 newly elected / re-elected directors either to me (UKKCYL National Chaplain) or UKKCA General Secretary latest by 15th January.  

 

Along with this, I would also like to remind you about the Leadership camp on the 13th, 14th and 15th of February 2013 at Wales which is only for the newly elected KCYL office bearers. Please refer to the email sent by UKKCYL Secretary, Deep Simon dated 16th November 2012 for further details of the camp.  

 

This time the camp is a three day ‘Retreat based Camp’ focusing mainly on providing a Spiritual input for our young leaders and will be led by Fr. Cyril Edamana Sdb & team. Along with spiritual growth, there will also be activities for personality development and leadership skills. So I request all parents to encourage their children to attend this camp. Please could the UKKCA unit office bearers make sure that your newly elected unit directors accompany your KCYL members throughout the camp.

 

Together let us endeavour to do the best for our next generation, so they grow and develop in our culture and lead successful lives as true Catholics and Knanites and make us all proud.

 

   Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need further clarification about any of the above mentioned points. I would be on holiday from 12th of January onwards. So for further enquiry or any clarification you are welcome to contact UKKCYL National Directors Mr.Sabu Kuriakose (07868027839) and Mrs.Shery Babey (0161-7247724).

 

Every Best Wish

 

Yours Sincerely

 

Fr Saji Malailputhenpurayil

(UKKCYL National Chaplain)

Christmas -2012

UKKCYL Leadership Camp 2013

 

Dear UKKCA and UKKCYL Office bearers,

 

Hope you are keeping in good health and looking forward to the christmas festivities coming soon. This is an important letter regarding the UKKCYL national election to be held in Feburary 2013.

 

The tenure of the 1st UKKCYL National Committee is coming to an end and on behalf of the UKKCYL national committee, I would like to take this opportunity to thank  all UK Knanaya members for the tremendous contributions, support and motivation given to us over the last  2 very successful years.

 

Firstly, I would like to confirm the dates and venue for the leadership camp (UKKCYL National Election). The date for the camp is Friday 15th Feburary 2013 to Sunday 17th Feburary 2013 (3 Days) and the venue is Cefn Lea Park, Dolfor, Newtown, Powys, SY16 4AJ, WALES.

 

During the 6th National council meeting held on 20th October 2012, few decisions were made regarding the UKKCYL national and unit elections based on our constitution which is as follows-

 

Every contestant standing for election should –

·         Have been a member of the UKKCYL unit for a minimum of 1 year before contesting in unit elections.

·         Have a minimum of 2 years of visa status to remain in the UK and complete the term as an office bearer.

·         Be under 28 years of age to become an office bearer, so as to conclude the office term by the time he/she is 30 years of age.

·         Be the member of the parent unit (UKKCA) of the respective UKKCYL unit to be able to vote and become an office bearer.

 

It was also decided that if in case a particular member joins a UKKCYL unit outside his/her respective UKKCA unit due to absence of a UKKCYL unit within their unit or due to the absence of a UKKCA unit in her/his respective area, then he/she would not be allowed to vote or contest as an office bearer. However they can participate in all the events and programmes in unit and national level under that respective unit.

 

Another decision was also made by the National council to conduct and conclude all unit elections before Tuesday, 15th January 2013. The list of the new office bearers for each unit should be emailed to the Executive committee of UKKCYL before the end of 15th January 2013. If any unit email is received after the deadline, then the respective unit office bearers would only be allowed to attend the leadership camp and would have to be sadly declined from taking part in the UKKCYL National Election.

 

Futheron, I would also like to inform you that UKKCYL central committee is happy to welcome any new unit to our UKKCYL family which already consists of 26 units. For the new units to attend the Leadership Camp, they should also send us (the UKKCYL central committee) the names of their elected office bearers and directors (male & female) before the fore mentioned date, Tuesday 15th January 2013.

 

Following are certain important  rules  regarding forming a new UKKCYL unit according to the UKKCYL constitution:

·         The UKKCYL Unit should be a youth wing of an already registered UKKCA unit.

·         The UKKCYL Unit should contain a minimum of 5 KCYL members. (5 Office Bearers)

·         The age range to become a UKKCYL member is 14 - 30 years, unmarried.

·         The Unit would need to have 2 directors - 1 Female, 1 Male.

 

It would be of great help if the President or Secretary of the UKKCA unit could confirm & recommend by an email to us that your new UKKCYL unit complies with the above mentioned laws. Please don’t forget to add your every UKKCYL unit members' full name and Date of Birth including their family names in that letter. 

 

Once UKKCYL Central committee receives the above letter, they will confirm that the new unit met all the requirements according to the UKKCYL Constitution before recommending to the National Council. The official approval would be given by the UKKCYL National Council according to the UKKCYL constitution. If UKKCYL does not receive any email about formation of the new unit before the above mentioned date of 15th January, unfortunately the office bearers would not be allowed to take part in the leadership camp.

 

It is also important to note that any new unit formed would be only allowed to attend

the leadership camp and not in the national election. This is due to the regulation regarding the approval of a new unit. According to the UKKCYL constitution, a new unit could only be approved by the UKKCYL National council and the next UKKCYL national council meeting would only be held after the National Election 2013-15.

 

Hope this letter covers all the important initial details regarding the election and leadership camp. Further details would be provided in the near future.

 

If you have any further queries regarding any information mentioned above please feel free to contact - Zubin Philip (President) 07411019890, Deep Simon (Secretary) 07735252373,

Sabu Kuriakose (Director) 07868027839 & Shery Babey (Director) 01617247724.

 

 

Thanks

Deep Simon

General Secretary, UKKCYL
