Herts Baseball Club has confirmed that its 22nd Annual General Meeting will take place on Sunday, 13 January 2019. To celebrate the 2019 MLB London Series the AGM will have an MLB-themed dress code as members and other attendees are invited to wear MLB jerseys and caps of their choice.
In 2018 the club continued its growth and success on and off the field. The AGM will provide a deeper understanding of the club’s present position, and will set out the plans for 2019 and beyond. Members will receive the AGM Information Pack in due course and that will give a better idea of what to expect at the meeting.
In accordance with the Constitution, a number of Board positions will be up for election at the upcoming AGM either as part of the annual retirement of a third of the Board positions or because they are vacant.
The club is now inviting nominations for the following Board positions:
• Shop Manager
• Facilities Manager
• Head of U17 Baseball
• Head of U15 Baseball
• Head of U13 Baseball
• Head of U11 Baseball
• Head of U8 Baseball
Note: The leagues which Herts teams will enter in 2019 will not be known until after the AGM. The Club may also enter additional teams in the BBF leagues.
Those who are interested to put their name forward or second a nomination can contact the club for more details.
Although only 2018 club members have the right to vote at the AGM, the meeting is very much open to former members and those who are considering joining the club in 2019 as players, members of staff, volunteers and fans. This is a good opportunity for newcomers to learn more about the club and meet its members. The meeting is also open to observers who are not members of the Club. Non-members who plan to attend would need to advise the club in advance as spaces are limited. If you are not a current member and wish to attend the AGM please contact the club.
The AGM will be held just a few minutes away from Grovehill Ballpark, at JFK Catholic School, which Herts baseball teams use as their indoor winter training.
Date: Sunday, 13 January 2019
Time: 2:15pm (expected to end at around 5:45pm)
