CA Special General Meeting – 8 July

As CA Members should be aware, the Council has decided to propose

(i) that the Chairman of the Council and the Honorary Secretary should be authorised to make an application to the Charity Commission to register Croquet England as a new Charitable Incorporated Organisation and

(ii) that, if the application is successful, the Executive Board should be authorised to transfer all of the assets and liabilities of the CA (by stages) to Croquet England so that Croquet England CIO will eventually replace the CA completely.

This major change has been under consideration for some time. Members are being asked for their approval. The Special General Meeting will be held via Zoom on Monday 18 July 2022 at 6 p.m. The meeting link has been sent to all Members. You are encouraged to attend. Special arrangements have been made to enable up to 500 Members to be accommodated.

Three significant documents are still available for perusal. Just click on the links below.
