Club secretaries in the league have been sent details about the annual general meeting which is set to take place on Thursday 4 June at 7pm. Secretaries should be aware that the deadline for extending invitiations to other club members, and to submit questions, is 1 June.
As detailed below, the league has been trialling the most appropriate way to conduct the meeting in these unprecedented times, and Zoom is the preferred option.
The AGM on the 4th June will take place by video conference at 7 PM. Please note we have brought the start time forward by an hour from our normal general meeting start time of 8PM. This is to avoid clashing with the weekly ‘clap for carers’. The meeting will be available to join from 6:45, and will start at 7PM prompt. Attached to this email are the agenda, previous minutes, rule changes and ballot paper.
We successfully tested Zoom with Manchester FA on their licenced version (avoids timing out after 40 minutes), so we’ll be using Zoom and MFA will issue the invitations. Further, more detailed joining instructions will be issued to secretaries.
The invitations to attend will be sent to club secretaries, if secretaries want invitations to go to other club members, let me know by 1st June. Every club is expected to do their utmost to attend.
If you would like to submit questions in advance of the meeting, again let me know by the 1st June. There will be a facility to ask questions on the night.
Attendees will be logged, achieving a virtual roll call. All voting items are on the ballot paper which is to be sent in to me by 9AM on the 8th June, by email by club secretaries. The votes will be verified by MFA and the results declared soon after.
