Topic: Asahi Baseball Association Annual General Meeting
Time: Aug 29, 2020 08:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
As always, we are always looking for new directors. If you are interested, please email email@example.com.
Please note we will be voting on a special resolution to amend the bylaws as follows:
SPECIAL RESOLUTION 2: The Bylaws of the Society be amended as follows (blacklined for your convenience):
(1) The membership period is from September 1 to August 31 of the following year
will be set by the Board of Directors.
Discussion: The flexibility of allowing the Board to set the membership period allows it to be changed to April 1 to March 31 to better align with Baseball BC dues. As Baseball BC dues are based on the number of Asahi player, if Asahi’s membership period is not aligned, it may result in an overpayment of dues.
Asahi members should have already received the video conference information via email. If you didn't get the information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm membership and get information on the video conference.
