Club members and supporters are invited to join us for the 2023 Annual General Meeting of the Newtown City Hockey Club.
📅 Thursday November 16, 2023
⏰ 7.30 pm
📍 Stead Park, John St, Corio
2023 provided many highlights for the Club and its members, and we are very pleased to share the details. Highlights include:
- excellent on-field performances and finals results
- reintroduction of a Division 1 Men’s team
- excellent member participation at Regional and State level teams and programs
- significant membership recruitment activities
- strong financial performance
- completion of Stage 1 of the Lloyd Reserve Pavilion Project expansion
The Annual General Meeting will allow members to see the strength of the club and the activities which have been undertaken in 2023. Reports will outline the strong financial position of the club and the performances of all our teams. The Annual General Meeting gives members the opportunity to ask questions regarding the Club’s finances, the actions taken during 2023 and future plans and projects.
The election of office bearers and committee members for 2023/2024 is one of the very important actions of the Annual General Meeting. The incoming committee will be guided by input from the members of the club, so contributing your thoughts and asking questions is both an important right and a responsibility of your membership of the Club.
The Annual General Meeting is also the starting point for planning the activities and improvements of the 2024 year, so come along and give us your ideas. The General Meeting which follows the AGM will include discussions about the results of the Annual Review survey.
Supper will be provided.

Special General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting will be followed by a Special General Meeting. The results of the 2023 Annual Review survey and the actions planned as a result will be discussed. This is the opportunity for club members to contribute ideas to ensure that the club meets their needs and provides an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.
How can we make the Newtown City Hockey Club even better than it is at present? Is there some aspect of the Club which is not performing as well as you, the member, expects? Do you have a suggestion which the club could adopt to ensure a strong and sustainable club?
We would love to hear your ideas for the Club’s future actions and aims. Please join us for the Annual General Meeting and share your thoughts.

If we did something good, let us know so that we can do it again! If there are things which you did not enjoy and which we need to improve upon, please tell us so that we can put a plan into action for next year. If you don’t tell us, we won’t know and can’t take any actions!
We would love your suggestions and ideas to help us plan for a great season in 2024. Please submit your response by November 13, 2023.
