British Judo Governance Review

Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) 2017 Details

This Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) is being held to discuss the changes to the Memorandum and Articles to meet the UK Sport (UKS) and Sport England (SE) Governance Standards.

This follows extensive consultation with Member Clubs, and a report prepared by Jonathan Hall Associates, taking into consideration the British Judo Strategy, the Hamlin report recommendations and UKS/SE Code of Good Governance. This code has some mandatory elements that National Governing Bodies of Sport and other agencies will need to comply with in order to access and receive public monies.

To confirm as well that this weekend’s meeting IS NOT A COUNCIL MEETING. This weekend’s EGM is purely to discuss the Governance changes.
