Dear London Boxing member,
These are very unprecedented times, which caused us to forgo our London AGM last summer.

11am start AGM with fixtures meeting to follow on.

Who can vote:
All clubs affiliated to England Boxing for the new season 2021/2022 and who are paid members of London Boxing (having paid their regional affiliation fee £100 new clubs £50 renewing clubs) are eligible to vote. Each club that attends the meeting is entitled to two votes per club. Any club not in attendance but wishes to have a proxy vote, must put their request in writing to the London Boxing secretary by 13th June 2021. Only one proxy vote will be permitted per club.
The fixtures meeting will follow the AGM.
At our last Executive meeting, the following was decided: U = Unanimous vote
U – As we are unaware of the number of officials returning and with the added pressure of running two championships, it was agreed that club shows could only begin after 6th Sept
U – Only one London show can be accommodated, whilst our regional championships are running.
U – We can only accommodate the maximum of two club shows only a day whilst National championships are running (subject to change).
U – At all other times only two shows can be accommodated on the same day outside of championships.
U – Clubs can put in a maximum of two shows between Sept and Dec and then after Xmas a maximum of three (five in total per club)
U – Dinner shows are given priority at all times
U – Once we know where we are and we are clear on the number of officials we have, it may be possible to request further shows on days that open up in our regional calendar. We will do our best to accommodate club requests but it is unprecedented times which now include double the number of championships to run; this inevitably impinges upon club events as our calendar (especially at weekends) is filled.
A draft of our London Championships calendar is attached; it is version 3 and subject to change. Please delete any other version you may have.
Show Request forms are also attached.
Motions at the AGM – These are matters of policy or concerns
Motions from our members must be put in writing, with a brief heading and summary and then sent to email@example.com by 13th June 2021
Any other questions, please do not hesitate to seek clarification – firstname.lastname@example.org
Yours in Sport
London Boxing Secretary
