SIGBI General Meeting 2021

The following documentation relates to the SIGBI Ltd General Meeting 2021.

Governance of the General Meeting

Owing to the pandemic, SIGBI did not hold a General Meeting in 2020 as the Conference was a virtual one and there was no provision in the SIGBI Byelaws allowing them to hold a virtual General Meeting. As SIGBI Ltd is required to hold a General Meeting at least every two years, one must be held in 2021, but again the Conference will be virtual.

Therefore, an addendum to the SIGBI Byelaws is necessary to allow the General Meeting 2021 to be virtual. Appropriate legal advice has been taken in comprising the Addendum. A vote of Clubs is not necessary for an Addendum to the Byelaws.

The letter below from Cathy Cottridge gives full details of this decision, and the Addendum is also below. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Gina Coad  –
