The EGM originally scheduled for 14 March 2022 has been rearranged for 6pm on Thursday 31 March 2022, in the East Stand Long Room at Headingley Cricket Ground.
Company Secretary Paul Hudson said:
“It’s important that our governance, administration and process is right.
“After finding an issue with the distribution of EGM materials to some Members, we’ve looked into it fully, addressed the problems and taken the necessary decision to rearrange the date.
“Our auditors were involved in this process and we’ve been in dialogue with ECB.”
“We’re sorry for any effects on Members and are looking forward both to a productive EGM and continuing to make progress for YCCC.”
“Having discovered this issue, we spent the weekend looking into it in detail and found that it was caused by a technical issue within our historic database systems.
It meant that Notice of the EGM may not have been sent to all Members – in particular some new Members and a handful of Honorary Life Members and Vice Presidents.
“Clearly, whilst the delay isn’t what anyone would want, it’s imperative that all members receive the necessary information and are able to have their say on the future of the Club.”
The EGM has been called to consider and vote on the resolutions in the documents available to download below, which are being proposed as special resolutions.
As applicable, Qualified Members have received an email today and those who do not receive electronic communications will receive a letter in the coming days.
