Have YOUR say at the AGM this Sunday!

Updated: Nov 17, 2020

Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of ABC Hockey Club is set out for Sunday 22 November at 5pm

At the Harbour Lounge, National Hockey Stadium, 159 Bush Road, Rosedale, Auckland 0632.




Typically, our AGMs have followed a simple process of confirming the appointment of the nominated key officers; President, Secretary, Treasurer, Club Captains (Men’s and Women’s), agreeing our accounts and completing any other formally required business. We have often done this very quickly before prize-giving when a significant number of members are gathered.


However, this year we would like to make some changes to the club constitution, the most significant of which is to change the way the committee will run. As a result, we will be holding the AGM separately allowing us the time for discussion on these changes as needed. If you would like to have a say in the way the club is run in the future please come along to the AGM and be heard.


We will make the new draft constitution available on our website, but the key changes being proposed are:

  1. Increase the minimum number of people who must attend an AGM or SGM from 8 to 20 in order to reach a quorum

  2. Add a more formal process to get online proxy votes for AGMs and SGMs

  3. Allow proxy voters to count towards the number required for a quorum

  4. Change the structure of the committee from having one person per team member, to specific members assigned to particular roles on the committee.

It is intended the revised Executive Committee will consist of the following:

  • President

  • Secretary

  • Treasurer

  • Women’s Club Captain

  • Men’s Club Captain

  • Uniforms and Equipment Officer

  • Communications Officer

  • Funding and Sponsorship Officer

  • Social & Functions Officer

  • Head Coach

With any other roles agreed, either at the AGM or by appointment from the executive committee.


If you would like to be considered for one of these roles and can not attend the AGM, please notify Karen Croft by emailing abchockeyclub@gmail.com with your apologies for the meeting and any background information you believe is relevant regarding the role you would like to put your name forward for.


In addition to the roles on the committee, the intention is for subcommittees or workgroups to form under each relevant area in order to get jobs done and we would welcome support and engagement in these areas.


Finally, all committee meetings in the future will be notified in advance via our club website and any club member is welcome to attend and have their say on matters.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding the upcoming AGM that you would like addressed ahead of the meeting, or if you would like a copy of the Club accounts or 2019 minutes ahead of the AGM, please contact Garry Bishop by email garry.bishop@gmail.com


Kind regards


Garry Bishop (GB) ABC Hockey Club President
