Open Meeting for Affiliates
The 2014 Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday, March 9 at the Radisson Hotel Philadelphia Northeast
in Trevose, PA. In accordance with our constitution, any proposed amendments to the constitution and bylaws must be submitted to the Secretary 45 days in advance of the AGM- January 23, 2014. 30 days prior to the meeting, all members will receive advance notice of any proposals.
Last year, there was a proposal to amend the constitution. The proposal was a consolidation of the current constitution and bylaws into one document, as well as an updating of the documents to be consistent with Pennsylvania law. The discussion was lively and led to several friendly amendments and additional revisions have taken place since last spring. There is a new proposal for your consideration at this year’s meeting. The proposed amended bylaws can be found on our website after the first of the year and we invite you to please review them in advance of the AGM.
To answer any questions or concerns on this issue, the Board of Directors will host an open meeting on Saturday, January 18 at 10 AM. The meeting will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia in room 109A, in conjunction with the NSCAA Convention and US Youth Soccer Workshop. Registration for those events is not required in order to attend this meeting.
However, if you are interested in attending the Convention, you may register
in advance or on-site. As a reminder, we have placed our own workshop on hiatus since this tremendous event is in Philadelphia for the next two years. This is a great opportunity to see and learn what’s happening throughout our greater soccer community.
