Scottish Golf Annual General Meeting, Sunday 15 March 2020

Dear Club, County and Area representative,

Against an ever changing backdrop of advice in relation to the ongoing Corona Virus - COVID 19, I thought it helpful to share an update in relation to the upcoming AGM.

Based on current Scottish and UK Government and World Health Organisation advice we are currently anticipating that the meeting scheduled for Sunday 15 March will go ahead as planned. 
We are aware that the advice in relation to public gatherings could change dramatically at any time.  
Each of us will be reflecting on not only our own vulnerability to the virus but, in many cases, more importantly, the vulnerability of loved ones. The decision as to whether or not to attend the AGM is therefore a personal choice.
The Board and Executive team at Scottish Golf are committed to ensuring that every effort is made to have the AGM take place on Sunday 15 March and that we move through proceedings in a timely manner with a view to minimising unnecessary contact time in a confined space.

Please note that the meeting will now commence at 12.30pm and that registration will be open from noon.

In these circumstances, so that those that wish to attend do not make the trip only to find that the meeting is not quorate, please can I ask all member organisations with voting entitlement to consider registering a proxy vote before 12.30pm on Friday 13 March. This will ensure that, should any of our currently registered attendee's choose not to travel on Sunday, the meeting remains quorate.
I appreciate that these are worrying and changing times. I will ensure that prompt communication is issued to all member organisations should our position change in the coming days.
Thank you and I hope to see you on Sunday.
With very best regards, Eleanor Cannon (Chair Scottish Golf)
