AGM 2013 details and papers

The 32nd Annual General Meeting of the British Orienteering Federation will be held on Friday 29th March 2013 at the Leighton Park School, Shinfield Road, Reading, RG2 7ED starting at 5.00pm. This is during the JK weekend and will be held after the Sprint event.

The proposals this year are for the adoption of accounts, appointment of auditors and 2 proposals for special resolutions relating to the make-up of the Board of Directors.

These proposals consider independent directors and the gender balance of Board members.

After the change to the Articles of Association agreed at the 2012 AGM, British Orienteering are now able to distribute AGM documents via email. This email was sent to members on Tuesday 6th March.

An incredible 98% of our members have email addresses in the membership database and we are therefore providing access to electronic copies of the AGM documentation.

On our website, all documents can also be found on the home page news and on the ‘Hot topics’ page.

By using emails to distribute the booklets, we will be able to make a considerable saving on print and postage, part of our drive to cut costs wherever possible.

Please accept our apologies if you have received this email more than once. This will be because your email address is held on the British Orienteering database for multiple family members e.g. same email address for yourself and child within a family. If you would like to update email addresses, please email or make updates on the ‘My account’ section of the website.

If any member would like us to post a copy of the booklets directly to them, please email

Many thanks and we look forward to seeing you at the AGM or receiving your proxy vote.
