Below is the formal notice of the AGM on Monday 15 June.
We hope to see you there, and would particularly welcome your thoughts on future development of the league and basketball in the area generally.
This meeting needs to have a purpose which makes it worth us all giving up an evening to attend, so it should be about improving everyone’s basketball opportunities and experience.
This in turn requires input from us all, as committee proposals will only succeed if they have the practical support of a majority of teams.
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The Annual General Meeting of the Gloucestershire Basketball League will take place at Tewkesbury Rugby Football Club on Monday 15 June, starting at 19:00 prompt.
Each team currently in membership of the league is required to send one representative. No person may represent more than one team. Failure to be represented will result in a fine of £25 (loss of deposit).
A representative of any new team considering joining the league may attend by prior permission of the Chair, but they will not be entitled to vote (see below).
Should a vote be required on any matter, each current team and each committee member shall be permitted one vote. No person may vote in more than one capacity.
The agenda will include the usual end of season reports, proposals for the 2015-16 season, and discussion on the development of basketball in the area.
Anyone who wishes to propose items for the agenda, or changes to the Constitution/Rules must submit these to the Chair by Wednesday 10 June.
A snack buffet will be provided, and a cash bar will be available as usual.
One important point requiring resolution is the requirement from Basketball England for each affiliated league to have a suitably trained Child Welfare Officer.
From past experience in a club requiring a CWO for the past 10 years or so, it is very unlikely that the person appointed will be called upon to take any action, especially as we have very few Under 18 players in the league. However he/she must undertake three short training courses: Safeguarding in Sport, First Aid, Time to Listen (as well as having a satisfactory DBS check).
It may well be that you have someone in your club who has already done some or all of these.
Please look into whether you have a potential volunteer.
Any training costs would be paid from league funds.
Please understand that we will not be able to function as a league, register teams and players etc unless we can satisfy this requirement.
