Club members and supporters are invited to attend the Newtown City Hockey Club Annual General Meeting for 2022, to be held on:
📅 Thursday November 17
⏰ 7.30 pm
📍 Stead Park, John St, Corio
2022 was expected to be a rebuilding year after the 2020 and 2021 effects of the COVID pandemic. We are very pleased to say that 2022 has been an excellent year for the Newtown City Hockey Club in many ways, with highlights including:
- excellent on-field performances
- significant recruitment activities and increased membership
- strong financial performance
- progress with facility development
The Annual General Meeting will allow members to see the strength of the club and the activities which have been undertaken in 2022. 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 2022 and future plans and projects.
The election of office bearers and committee members for 2022/2023 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.
We welcome any member who would like to volunteer their time, whether as a member of the incoming committee, or for an occasional role in the wide range of roles and tasks across the club.
Supper will be provided.
The Annual General Meeting will be followed by a Special General Meeting. The results of the recent 2022 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.
