Berks and Bucks County Bridge Association AGM - 22 May 2021 at 4.00 p.m.
This is to formally inform you that the AGM will go ahead on 22 May 2021 at 4.00 p.m. in line with the constitution. As last year, due to the current circumstances, this year’s AGM will be held on-line, in two parts (see details at the bottom of this notice).
In order to show you the list of reports, resolutions and elections to be debated and voted upon, a draft agenda is accessible with the link below, together with the Minutes of the B&BCBA 2020 AGM.
The following documents will be published on the website on about 1 May 2021 are listed below.
Chairman’s report 2020-21
Treasurer’s report 2020-21
Elections and nominee statements
As usual, all committee members stand down at the AGM, and most will seek re-election. On this occasion, after seven years as chairman, Dick Davey will retire from the committee.
We expect there to be at least one contested election, including for the position of chairman, and there are vacancies for other committee members. We invite nominations for officers (Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary) and other members of the main committee (proposer, seconder and confirmation that the nominee has consented are required, nominees or their proposers may also include an election statement of up to 300 words).
These should be sent to the secretary (Peter Hawkes, firstname.lastname@example.org) by 30 April 2021.
We also invite proposals for agenda items and resolutions supported by five members (with details). These are also to be sent to the secretary by 30 April 2021.
Hoping these difficult times will end well and we can all get back to the game we love.
