The Yorkshire County Cricket Club can confirm that Saturday’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will go ahead, with only essential formal business items to be covered.
Due to the widespread effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Club have decided to shorten the AGM to only include formal business. As such, there will be no oral reports from any of the Club’s senior management team nor the Chairman, although questions will be answered.
The meeting will be live streamed to allow Members’ who are unable to attend to witness proceedings. All Full and One-Day Members who have provided the club with a valid email address will receive a web link to the stream ahead of it starting. A Members’ forum will be organised when circumstances allow, with full presentations from the Chairman, Chief Executive, Finance Director and Director of Cricket.
Members who believe they may have any symptoms of the virus or think that they are at risk of catching it should NOT attend the meeting.
Yorkshire County Cricket Club Chairman Robin Smith said: “Given the nature and widespread effects of the Coronavirus, we have deemed it necessary to shorten Saturday’s Annual General Meeting to cover only essential formal matters, such as elections, Rule amendments, receipt of the accounts and appointment of auditors. The health of our Members and staff is of paramount importance and we would therefore encourage those who fear they may have been affected by the virus or are at risk not to attend. They will have an opportunity to hear the usual reports from the chairman and management team, and to ask questions, at a members’ forum which will be held as soon as circumstances allow.
“We envisage that Saturday’s meeting should last no longer than 30 minutes, with only formal agenda items addressed. Whilst this isn’t ideal, we feel in the present exceptional circumstances this is in the best interests of the Club and our Members.”
