Surfing England Annual General Meeting

Surfing England

Annual General Meeting

WELCOME Surfing England invites members and interested parties to the 2018 Annual General Meeting.

MEET THE TEAM The AGM offers a chance to meet the Staff and Directors of Surfing England, hear news about the year that’s been, and the vision of what is to come. The 2018 event plays host to a number of key speakers who will bring knowledge and information from different sectors of the surf world and provide food for thought; as well as a networking and social opportunity.

FIND OUT Surfing England places the utmost value on professional and transparent leadership of the National Governing Body. Hosting the 2018 AGM in North Devon is an opportunity for the NGB to open its doors and provide an insight into the inner workings of the organisation. Surfing England’s close friend, and office partner, the British Surfing Museum will also be opening for free for surfers to explore the rich history of British Surfing.

HAVE YOUR SAY For members, the AGM is your opportunity to elect the board that runs YOUR NGB and vote on the resolutions that govern YOUR organisation.

SUPPORT Attendees who wish to renew their support for their NGB & have their say on the future of English Surfing are reminded to ensure your memberships are up to date in advance of the AGM in order to take part in voting.
