Date and venue announced for 2017 BSF AGM
Fri 9 Dec 2016
The BSF has announced that the 2017 BSF AGM will be held on Saturday 25 February 2017 at the Metropolitan Police Bushey Sports Club, Aldenham Road, Bushey, Herts WD23 2TR.
The venue is next to Junction 5 on the M1, and just two miles (10 minutes) by taxi from Watford Junction Mainline Station (trains from Euston to Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Manchester, Scotland etc).
Details on AGM timings and programme will be released shortly and a full AGM Pack will be circulated to teams at the beginning of February.
The 2017 BSF AGM will be particularly important because members may be voting on the proposal to merge the BSF, BBF and BSUK into a single organisation.
In addition, a new BSF President will need to be elected as the current President, Stella Ackrell, is stepping down after many years of service. The Federation will also be looking for someone to fill the vital position of Administrator.
These roles need to be skills-based, and the person elected President will also need the capacity to represent softball on the Board of the new single baseball/softball organisation if merger goes ahead. The BSF will shortly publish full job descriptions for these and other roles where nominations can be made.
Motions and nominations
Anyone who wishes to submit a motion to the AGM, or to make a nomination for a position on the BSF Executive, should send the motion or nomination, with supporting information, to BSF Administrator Lesley Morisetti (lesley,firstname.lastname@example.org).
