Notes on Committee Meeting
July 2014

Draft minutes are available here.

  • The new committee met for the first time and confirmed, reappointed and rearranged the sub-committees. 
  • Changes were agreed to the payments to players representing the County in matches. 
  • The Treasurer presented a budget for 2014/15 which will be achievable with the transfers that have been made of some section funds to central funds. 
  • Representtatives from the EBU’s Regional Club Working Groups will soon be forming a National Group. This is the way for clubs to put their views forward and be heard by an EBU Board member. Contact Dick Andrews if you have any views. 
  • Counties are encouraged by the EBU (and its offshoot EBED) to have a Youth Officer. Any volunteers? 
  • There will be no printed calendar this year; instead all information will be updated on the website and a 2-page printed version provided to Club for their notice boards with a request to print hard copies for any club members who have no internet access. 
  • Watch this space : there may be a West Section league (check website for updates).
