Club AGM 2018
« on: March 21, 2018, 11:31:42 AM »

After years of playing at a club run by a one-man committee as a de facto dictatorship, I'm delighted to be attending a properly-run AGM for my new club tonight.

At my old club the AGM was not well advertised, agenda/minutes were not prepared or circulated and the whole thing was done as a formality. While the members did always give their opinions, they were informal and nothing was ever done. In fact, I spent the last few seasons complaining that we were paying our subs but our wishes (eg around which league we played in etc) were not being listened to.

Does that ring a bell with anyone, or are you all at well-run clubs with excellent committees?

My new club has circulated last year's minutes and season report well ahead of time, and the AGM for tonight has a clear agenda. I'm sure it won't be a strictly formal affair but it's great to have some structure.

We're very fortunate to have a number of dedicated members who form a strong and consistent committee. I've been on it for 3 years, but others have been there for 20+. We don't agree on everything, but there's no doubt that we all want the club to progress in a positive and inclusive way. A good committee makes all the difference to a club, even when the teams are short and results go against you.
