Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting of Gloucestershire Basketball Association will take place at Tewkesbury Rugby Club, Gander Lane GL20 5PG, on Monday 3 June at 19:00 prompt.

Some light refreshments will be served, and the bar will be available before and after the meeting.

All teams in current membership of the league are required to send a representative. There is a £25 fine for any team failing to do so.

Other guests are only permitted with the advance permission of the Chair.

Each team which has no debts to the association has one vote.

As usual, we plan to run an efficient meeting, giving appropriate time to important matters, but dealing with routine business quickly.

Therefore, please submit the following to me by Monday 27 May:

  • Proposals for changes to the rules
  • Matters for the agenda (with any related papers if appropriate)
  • The first part of the meeting will cover routine AGM business, and league structure for 2013-14.

    After the refreshments break, development and any other matters will be discussed.

    The meeting is planned to conclude by 21:00, with a latest cut off at 21:15.

    I look forward to meeting you all on 3rd.

    Best regards
