London volleyball governance
Bid to avoid 2018 confusion
Open in new windowSunday 14 July will have been in many diaries for some time as the date for the London Volleyball Association's annual general meeting that follows the usual end of season league meeting. It may have come as a surprise to some on receiving the formal notice that this year there is to be a third meeting. It will take place between the two we all expected.

Twenty-one members have asked the LVA to hold a Special General Meeting prior to the annual General Meeting in order to have clarity on the current voting procedures at the AGM i.e. who has the right to vote (member classification) and how can we work together to produce a more transparent, equal opportunity procedure that reflects the current and growing needs of the volleyball community in London. This includes:
1. The request to publish a month in advance the nominees (submitted by all members) for the different positions in the LVA such as President, Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer

2. The request to publish two weeks in advance the members who have submitted their proxy to vote on their behalf and to whom they have given their proxy (voting preference should not be public)*

As a result the League meeting scheduled for 13:00 will be followed by a Special General Meeting at approx. 15:00 and that by the Annual General Meeting at approx. 15:30, as last year at Southbank University

Agenda - League Meeting
1. Division Administrators Reports
2. Junior League Report
3. Trophies/Medals Presentation
4. Changes in League Rule for the new season

Agenda – Special General Meeting
1. LVA Constitution

Agenda - Annual General Meeting
1. Chairman’s Report
2. Treasurer’s Report
3. Secretary's Report

5. General Discussion

The room number for the meeting is L-10 and the address is London Road building 100-116 London Road, SE1 6LN. Entrance to the building located at the top of the ramp. The nearest station is Elephant and Castle.

The association has been told that it needs to submit an attendee list with name/surname participants prior to the meeting. All members intending to attend should send their details as specified to the secretary at league.lva@londonvolleyball.org by 12th July 2019 as she needs to submit these details to the venue in advance to avoid security issues at the entrance.

*wording is that of the formal request for the special general meeting
