As a company limited by guarantee, Kent Golf Limited is by the Companies Acts to comply with a number of statutory obligations. As a private limited company, Kent Golf is not required by that legislation to hold an annual general meeting or, indeed, any general meeting. However, the Articles of Association of the Company provide that an annual general meeting is to be held in each calendar year to transact certain administrative business. These are: to receive from the Board the Company's financial statements, to receive a report of the activities of the Company since the previous annual general meeting, to receive a report from the President and Lady President (which will usually cover golfing activities), as and when appropriate to appoint a President or Lady President in place of such persons retiring, where candidates are proposed, to appoint Vice-Presidents, to elect the Elected Directors in place of those retiring or to fill vacancies and to transact such other business as may be brought before it. Notice is sent to all affiliated clubs, each of which is a Voting Member of the Company, such that those clubs can either send a representative to the AGM or submit a proxy form in order to exercise its voting rights. The Company permits associate members to attend the meeting, but these individuals do not have voting rights.
Kent Golf holds regular meetings for delegates, club managers and junior organisers in order to gain feedback on golfing matters.
The minutes of past AGMs and Board Meetings can be seen at Kent Golf minutes .
The 2022 Annual General Meeting is scheduled to be held at Mid Kent Golf Club on Wednesday 7 September at 10.00am. Notice will be issued to member Clubs in August together with any supporting documents.
As previously advised, two directors retire at the 2022 AGM having served three years since their last election and, our Chair, Peter Long has advised that he will be stepping down at this meeting as he is due to take on the Captaincy of his home club later in September. In addition, we presently have a vacancy on our Board in the position of Finance Director. Those retiring may stand for re-election. A nomination form for Directors has been sent to all Club Managers/Secretaries. Should you have any queries, please contact the County Secretary.
The closing date for nominations is 31 July 2022.
