GHA Annual General Meeting 2021

November 14, 2021

The Annual General Meeting of the Geelong Hockey Association will be held on:

📅  Thursday November 25

⏰  7.00 pm

📍  Stead Park, John St, Corio


The Annual General Meeting provides the opportunity to review the successes of the year just finished, and identify any areas where the expectations of members were not met.

Despite the ongoing COVID conditions, there are many highlights of the 2021 season, including the significant recovery and strong position of the Geelong Hockey Association as we head into the 2022 season.

The Annual Report will be presented to members to report on the activities and the finances of the organisation. The General Meeting which follows the Annual General Meeting is the opportunity to ask questions and make suggestions.  If you have ideas about how to improve hockey for our members, this is the time to put them forward. Do you have thoughts about facilities or competitions or recruiting or representative teams?  Then come to the meeting and share them so that we can add them into the plans for 2022.

The involvement of many members of the Geelong Hockey Association is needed in order to make plans and then to ensure that they are carried out.  The Geelong Hockey Association exists for the benefit of its members – YOU.

The Geelong Hockey Association Strategic Plan will be reviewed by the incoming committee and suggestions from members are a vital part of planning for success.
