Voting and Articles
The Articles of the Company state that a club representative must have an authorisation document signed by two club officers in order to confirm them as authorised to vote. A copy of this form is below.
All signed forms must be sent to the England Boxing office to enable basic attendance numbers to be established and confirm that the club is able to vote in accordance with the Articles of Association.
In addition to voting members, Associations are entitled to send a representative, who can attend and speak but not vote on behalf of that Association. Secretaries have been sent an invitation for their Committees to determine their representative.
All representatives are required to bring copies of the signed forms on the AGM day to enable them to represent their club/association.
Access an authorised club voting form by clicking here.
Details of the Articles including quorum can be found by clicking here.
Please note that in the event the meeting is not quorate at the 6pm start time, then the AGM can proceed as quorate at 7pm.
The AGM proceedings can therefore be completed on the day. In the event this happens, the intervening period shall be filled by the Board taking questions from those in attendance.
