The Association’s Annual General Meeting was held on 30 June 2020, by video conference on Zoom.com – a first for the Association. We thank Tom Barton for arranging this and for all who “attended” and enabled this most important business to be transacted.
With his customary efficiency, Steve Wedlock has already produced the Minutes, which are available below in DRAFT form, together with the meeting documents (zipped).
One thing we were not able to do was to present any trophies, partly because no teleportation device is yet available but mainly because there are no finished events! Dave Millward still harbours the wish to see the 2019-20 League competition completed, but cancellation of the Southend Congress meant that there has not yet been any competition for the award of the Essex Championship and Essex Minor Championship.
Officers: Les Groombridge has had to stand down as Treasurer for health reasons and we wish him a speedy recovery. Fred Whitefield (Southend) was elected to succeed Les as Treasurer. The only other change is that David Smith has stepped down as Assistant Match Captain. No replacement candidate has yet come forward and this appointment has been referred to the Executive – if any Member wishes to be considered for this vacant position, they are invited to contact the Secretary (email link). Otherwise, all other Officers were re-elected.
The Association’s Fees remain unchanged.
