BTBA AGM opened to members for the first time

We are pleased to announce that the date for this year’s AGM has now been confirmed as the 25th May 2019, and for the first time, we are excited to invite BTBA members to attend alongside their area delegates.

We recognise that for many years, members have aired their frustrations of not being able to attend and put their questions to the council in person and we hope that this new initiative will give members the opportunity to speak freely.

BTBA Chair, Martin Webster said: “As Chairman of the BTBA, I am delighted that for the first time this year, we are opening up the AGM in May to all our members across the UK.

I sincerely hope that members will support this new initiative and come to the AGM where we can openly discuss questions from the floor in a transparent way and speak openly about the association and the opportunities that lie ahead for our sport.”

The AGM will be held at Heartlands Hospital, Birmingham, B9 5SS on 25th May 2019 from 2:30pm – 4:30pm. Only Local Association Delegates will be able to vote, but members are invited to contribute to the open Q&A session. Venue restrictions mean that space is limited to 100 members, and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis at a cost of £5. Spaces can be reserved via the events tile on Go Membership.

We hope that members will support us as we pilot this new initiative.

  1. The £5.00 Fee to attend the BTBA AGM – Is the attendance fee applicable to the elected Association Delegate ?

  2. It’s a pity that the AGM is being held when it is the Spring Bank holiday weekend and that the NAYBC Nationals are taking place in Dunstable.
    Also understand hiring the venue must be paid for but to charge members £5-00 to attend is unbelievable – it’s not encouraging membership attendance at the first open AGM.

  3. Due to the date i.e. Spring Bank Holiday the DATA Delegate will be unable to attend.
    Other DATA Council members are also unavailable due to holiday commitments.
    DATA also accept costs are involved but to charge members to attend an AGM is totally unacceptable.
