FHBC AGM Feb. 10
The upcoming Field Hockey BC Annual General meeting will have a lot of items on the agenda that will be important to the state and future of field hockey in Victoria. As a collective, it is important that members in the Cowichan and Victoria men’s and women’s league as well as voting members such as coaches, officials, etc. take part in the upcoming votes. Though we don’t expect everyone to attend the meeting we are collecting proxy votes to be submitted to Field Hockey BC before Feb. 3, 2020.
This means that each player should let their designated team rep or club rep know if they are okay (or not) with their names being used by a representative to vote on their behalf. Once the names are submitted we will also circulate information around ‘our’ as in Vancouver Island’s best recommendations on what directions we would like to see the motions and elections move in. This will be a challenging conversation but we are open to having the reps that will carry proxy votes meet in person.
Monday Feb. 10, 2020 at 6:30 pm
Room 155 at McKinnon Gym (UVic)
In the immediate future, please get your names to your team/club reps who will forward lists to Ali Baggott. Ali will coordinate all the proxy votes going in. Club and team reps are expected to support in finding a person to be either on the phone call carrying 35 votes (plus their own) or doing the same in person (either in Victoria or going to the meeting itself in Vancouver). Proxy names must be submitted by Feb. 3 if we want to have a right to vote via phone.
Just as in any large election, every vote matters, and even if things do not go in our favour, we will know that every voice in Vancouver Island at least participated in their say. This is a really important time for us to take part in the conversation. Please don’t think your vote does not matter.
A reminder that voting members include:
a) Senior Player
b) Junior Player (under 13 and under 18 as of January 1 of the playing season)
c) Associate members (non-playing, non-officiating, non-coaching members that have a FHBC voting membership)
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ali at 250-418-5633 or firstname.lastname@example.org
