"A Structure fit for the future” update

"A Structure fit for the future” update
After a long and detailed consultation process with members over the past few years, the Board of England Hockey met yesterday (3 February 2020) to approve the resolution that will be put before the 2020 AGM seeking a mandate to deliver the “Structure fit for the future” proposals. The proposals were shared with members last year and, in light of the positive response, the Board wants to work with members to deliver the change over the proposed timeline.
The wording of the resolution will be:
• Approval of the resolution to endorse the ‘Structure Fit for the Future’ proposal and instruct England Hockey to work with the membership with the aim to deliver the changes proposed in the timeline set out in the full proposal document.
We are also pleased to announce that England Hockey has partnered with Civica Election Services  (formerly the Electoral Reform Services)  who will be managing the voting process for the AGM on our behalf. We believe this will give members full confidence in an independent and transparent process and details can be found here: Civica Election Services – AGM Process
Members are advised of the following timeline: 
20 February 2020 – Closing date for notification of any proposed AGM business to the EH Company Secretary.
24 February 2020 – AGM papers issued to members
15 March 2020 (19.30) – Closing date for electronic appointment of proxies and postal voting for vacant roles.
17 March 2020 (19.30) - England Hockey AGM (CES will also be conducting and overseeing the voting process at the AGM)
The full details of the AGM Resolution proposal - A Structure Fit for the Future, including consultation and a draft implementation plan can be found here: www.englandhockey.co.uk/agmresolution
These changes have come from feedback provided by our members so we would encourage all members to review these important changes and vote on the proposals. If you have any questions or comments please don’t hesitate to get in touch at agm.resolution@englandhockey.co.uk
