One of the last orders of business before we close out this very unorthodox year, is for us to hold the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
In accordance with the Club Constitution, we are required to hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) between mid Nov and mid Dec. This year’s AGM will be held on 22 November 2020 @ 10:00am via Zoom.
While planning for this years AGM, the Executive Board realized that due to the COVID pandemic, we find ourselves in a unique situation. None, of our Senior players have registered and therefore cannot vote in accordance with our Club Constitution. However, following a Special General Meeting (SGM) held on 1 Nov 2020; it was unanimously approved to permit an exemption to the Club Constitution and allow all members in good standing from the 2019 season, to participate and vote in the 2020 AGM.
The AGM allows the Club Executive Board to report on such things as the state of the club, how the year went, plans for the future, elect new executive members as terms expire and more importantly listen to the membership. Traditionally, the AGM has been attended primarily by the Senior members of the Club, even though every member who has registered and paid their club dues, has voting privileges. (U8 to Old Boys) The condition being that anyone under the age of 18, must vote via their parents.
Any member who wishes to submit agenda items for consideration, should do so prior to 14 November 2020, by sending them to email@example.com. The AGM agenda and Zoom details will follow after the 14 November 2020, and we truly hope that a proper representation of our membership takes the time to attend, be part of the discussion and vote on the future of your club. Mark it in your calendars now, please.
