The 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Surfing New Zealand Inc scheduled to be held at the Adams Centre for High Performance, 52 Miro Street, Mount Maunganui, Saturday 1st December has been adjourned.
The new date for the AGM will be confirmed by Friday December 8th.
Please read the note below from the Surfing New Zealand Board.
We regret to advise clubs that the Board of Surfing New Zealand has today made a decision to adjourn the Annual General Meeting which was scheduled to happen this Saturday at Mount Maunganui.
We sincerely apologise for the late notice and any inconvenience caused.
This was not a decision that was made lightly. However, the Board felt it had no other option after having taken guidance from Sport NZ.
We will notify clubs next week of the replacement date and venue for the AGM.
The Board is committed to improved governance and transparent engagement with you as stakeholders. The reasons it’s become necessary to delay the AGM are;
* Financial accounts have not been signed off by the auditor.
* Accounts were not published online 14 days ahead of AGM for clubs to consider in line with rules.
* Board nominations process not conducted within AGM rules in accordance with agreed processes, and biographies of the candidates have not been provided to clubs.
In addition, our Chairman suffered a family bereavement and would not have been able to attend on Saturday. The Board extends its condolences.
The Deputy Chairman advised many weeks ago of an important prior commitment that meant he would not be able to attend on Saturday.
This combined and unusual set of circumstances has resulted in the adjournment.
We apologise for the inconvenience and late notice and will be in contact next week in regards to a new date and confirmation of venue.
Yours in surfing,
The Board of Surfing NZ
