A reminder will be included in the January 5, 2022 update to follow.

In addition and as a polite reminder, the full calendar outline for the submission of information and documentation ahead of the virtual FHBC AGM is as follows:

  • AGM Date: February 9, 2022 at 6.30pm
  • Deadline for Submission of Nominations to the Board of Directors: January 17, 2022

  • Deadline to Register Questions in advance of the AGM (Optional): February 4, 2022
  • Virtual AGM Trial Run (Internal): February 7, 2022

The timeline above recognizes the level of complexity required when considering a virtually hosted AGM and in particular sets realistic submission deadlines designed to enable FHBC to pre-load election, motion, and voting detail into the supporting technology. Once such detail has been pre-loaded sufficient time remains for FHBC to communicate with members (most specifically voting members) as to how such technology will be utilized both in advance of and at the AGM.

FHBC intends to provide a further AGM update/reminder scheduled for membership dissemination on January 24, 2022. Each AGM update is intended to provide guidance as to due process ahead of pertinent calendar deadlines.

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out and contact us at info@fieldhockeybc.com should you have any questions regarding the 2022 FHBC AGM.

Yours in sport,

Mark Saunders
