Good Morning Everyone,
A quick update on the Annual General Meeting. We have set the date for the AGM to be held on Thursday October 28, 2021 at 7:00 pm. The AGM is held every year to present the status of the league, financial updates, Board of Director election and proposed Bylaw amendments. You must be a member in Good Standing for 2022 to vote on any Bylaw amendments or vote on the Board of Directors. This means you must be registered for the 2022 season.
2022 Board of Directors - We have a few current Board members who will not be running for re-election. If you are interested in running for the Board of Directors, please refer to the Election Process in the Bylaw section on the web site. To submit your name for consideration you have until October 14, 2021 to do so. Please send your notice by e-mail to me directly at email@example.com. The voting and counting process will be the same as last year.
Bylaw Amendments - Again, please refer to the Bylaw section on the web site for the process to submit an amendment request. Same deadline applies, Bylaw Amendment requests must be submitted by October 14, 2021 and sent to me as well.
Once again, due to COVID restrictions, we will need to hold the meeting virtually. More instructions will follow on how we will manage the meeting. Since we need to send invite links out to all of those who would like to attend, I would ask that you respond to me by e-mail that you would like to be added to the invite list.
We will also be looking for non-Board volunteers to assist with the counting of votes. If you are interested in helping out, please send me an e-mail.
Playoffs - Great job to everyone getting round 1 completed. This week's weather doesn't look great but please remember that playoffs are rain or shine!! Only the City can cancel games by pulling permits or the Umpires can cancel games due to lightening or dangerous field conditions. We are working on contingency plans to make up any cancelled games, should they occur. It may mean back to back days, double headers, different parks or even different days. Lets hope it doesn't happen but we are working on it in advance to minimize the impact.
Good luck to everyone in Round 2 and thanks for your patience and understanding this year. It's been a challenging season to get completed but we're almost there.
