Election of Officers at AGM
Unfortunately Brian Kendall is unable to continue as League Chair and Treasurer. The League urgently needs a new chair and treasurer and the opportunity has been taken to review the some of the other posts set out in our constitution. A list of the proposed new posts together with outline job descriptions has been sent in a separate email together with a call for nominations. In view of the short time available before the AGM a Special General Meeting of the existing committee agreed to waive the requirement for 21 days notice of nominations and to accept nominations submitted up to Tuesday, September 28th. Posts to be filled include Chair and Treasurer a Publicity and promotions officer and a Junior development officer. Please call me if you need more information.
Fees for 2021-22
We propose that annual fees should remain the same as in 2019-20 (to be confirmed at AGM). However, since the 2019/20 season had to be abandoned before the matches were completed in any division it has been decided to declare all the results void. Teams that participated in 2019/20 offered a discount on their 2021/22 entry and will be asked to pay £20 for their registration fee.
Normal team affiliation £35
Discounted fee £20
New teams £20
U18 teams £20
Surety for new teams £15
These fees must be paid at the Fixture Meeting
If you require an invoice or wish to pay by bank transfer please contact me at least a week before the meeting.
Volleyball England Affiliation will be discussed at the AGM.
Could all teams (including new teams) reply by email at least two days before the meeting to indicate the division they would like to play in in the coming season – assuming we will continue to have two men’s and two women’s divisions – this will save time at the fixture meeting. Normal automatic promotion and relegation will be applied to the 2019-20 league tables but we recognise that post COVID some teams will wish to claim exceptional circumstances for this year’s league entry.
Des Jeffers Tournaments
The MVL runs men’s and women’s curtain raiser tournaments at the end of October/ early November to help get the season started.
Provisional dates (to avoid clashes with NVL)
Women : Sunday, October 31 at Woodchurch Sports Centre
Men: Sunday, November 14 at Woodchurch Sports Centre
Dates, times etc. will be finalised before the Fixture Meeting. You should be prepared to confirm your entry and pay the entry fee of £20 at the Fixture Meeting.
These tournaments are on Sundays and have been held at Woodchurch Sports Centre for the last 5 years.
Let me know if you’d like to put forward an alternative venue – it must have two courts and be available on Sundays for at least 5 hours.
