Who needs to attend the AGM?
The BSF Executive has published revised attendance requirements for this year's AGM:
Attendance at the BSF AGM is linked to participation in National Championships. Attendance is now required by:
All NSL 1 and NSL 2 teams.
All slowpitch softball leagues that wish to send teams to Nationals at any level.
All 2016 league divisional winners that wish to take up the place they have earned in the Co-ed Slowpitch Nationals in 2017 at the appropriate grade.
- All teams that won their grade (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze) at the 2016 Co-ed Slowpitch Nationals if they wish to be guaranteed a place in the 2017 Nationals as defending champions.
At a conference call meeting held on 7 February, the Executive has also agreed the following statement:
In general, a league representative cannot also represent a team at the AGM. However, a League Head who is a genuine registered playing member of a team from that league that has won a place in the 2017 BSF Co-ed Slowpitch League Nationals can represent both the league and that team. But such a person will only have one vote, not two.
If you are invoking this clause by representing your league and team at the AGM, please let the BSF know beforehand (email Liz Graham on: firstname.lastname@example.org).
