Notice of Sussex Cricket Limited rescheduled Annual General Meeting 2020

As Members are aware the Board of Directors took the decision to postpone the Sussex Cricket Annual General meeting on March 31st 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The rescheduled virtual AGM will take place on Thursday August 20th 2020, starting at 6pm. The meeting will be held via the online ‘Zoom’ platform, much like the recent successful virtual Members Forums. After the formal proceedings have been concluded, there will be a Members Forum conducted with opportunities for Members to ask questions of the Board Officers, the cricket management and Chief Executive, Rob Andrew.

As with previous years, Individual Members and Affiliated Club Members will be admitted to the AGM on evidence of their paid-up membership for 2020. Therefore, if you would like to attend the virtual AGM on the 20th August, we would ask all Members to register their interest in the form below, stating their membership number by noon on Tuesday, 18th August 2020 at the latest. The joining details for the Zoom meeting will only be sent to members who have indicated their interest by the deadline. If you have any issues with registering please contact Laura Walford (laura.walford@sussexcricket.co.uk) stating your membership number.

The Board of Directors have agreed that it is not considered necessary to send out the Audited Annual Accounts and Report of the Board as these documents have already been sent to Members with the original AGM notice, on the 3rd February 2020. These documents are available online here.

As per the 31st March 2020 proposed AGM agenda, alongside the normal business, there are a number of resolutions of which Members will be asked to vote on at the 20th August meeting (please consult the Annual Accounts Booklet for this information). Voting will be possible during the virtual AGM, via the Zoom ‘polling’ function (instructions for which will be given at the start of the meeting by Chief Executive Rob Andrew), however, we will only be able to count one vote per device. If you are unable to attend the AGM, you can cast your proxy vote below the registration form. Please note, an Individual Member/Affiliated Club may not submit more than one vote. All proxy votes must be received by noon on Tuesday, 18th August 2020 at the latest.

Sussex Cricket Limited welcomes any questions in advance of the AGM. These can be sent to Laura Walford, Executive Assistant, laura.walford@sussexcricket.co.uk
