The Jarrow and Hebburn Annual General Meeting will take place on Monday 28 June 2021 at 7pm (with arrivals from 6.30pm) at The Lakeside Inn, East Fellgate Farm, Wardley, NE10 8YD. The event is open to all current and honorary members, as well as parents and carers of junior members. Formalities will close by 8.30pm. This is also our company AGM so the agenda includes the appointment of director(s) and presentation of company accounts, in accordance with our articles of association. The meeting will be in-person and will follow the anticipated further easing of social distancing restrictions on 21 June, although some Covid-secure measures will still be implemented. The event will also be streamed live online for those who are not able to attend in person. The meeting agenda and the minutes from the previous AGM held on 7 September 2020 are available below:

All current members of the Committee have expressed their intentions to continue in their current positions during 2021-22. There are currently no vacant positions, but if anyone would like to  stand for election, please email expressions of interest to secretary@jhac.org.uk. A maximum of 10 voting members are permitted under the Club Constitution. Committee members should be able to commit to one meeting per month (usually held on the first Monday evening) and dedicate some additional time to the Club. The Committee also welcome offers of support from members in a range of areas, from helping with the website and digital marketing, to coaching and officiating, and volunteers are welcome to attend Committee meetings as non-voting members. If you feel you have the skills, positivity and enthusiasm to help take the Club forward, please speak to a member of the Committee.

We also hope to re-elect two senior captains at the AGM. Captains are not Committee positions and it is not obligatory to attend meetings, but captains are welcome to do so and will be included in Committee correspondence. The role of captain involves sharing information on upcoming races, drumming up enthusiasm, entering and coordinating teams, and otherwise being a positive role model for other members. Ideally, captains will attend a significant proportion of key events each season
