At their meeting held September 28, 2020, the Board of Directors made the difficult decision to postpone the Annual General Meeting of Mann Park Lawn Bowling Club currently scheduled for October 21, 2020.
The Board looked into various options that would comply with public health guidelines while still permitting all of our members a voice at the meeting. We could not find an option that was feasible during current COVID restrictions.
Recognizing the difficulties that societies are facing in holding their AGMs during the pandemic, the Registrar of Companies in Victoria passed a declaration permitting them to postpone their meeting until no later than November 1, 2021 (see attached). Although we can delay the meeting for a year, the Board hopes to be able to hold our AGM compliant with COVID restrictions in March 2021. That being said, the health and safety of our members will be our primary concern in rescheduling the meeting.
While we will not be holding our AGM this month, a detailed annual report is currently being finalized that summarizes the business that would have been presented at the meeting. I hope to circulate that report to you shortly.
