2nd MayDHUA Extraordinary General Meeting Wednesday 8th June 2022

Nearly the end of an era!

The 2021/22 hockey season is now drawing to a conclusion with Finals Day on Saturday 7th May and with that comes the final few months of the existence of Devon Hockey Umpires Association.
We have all been in a transition phase this season as we have begun to adapt to the new Governance Structure that will be fully established for all administration by September 1st 2022.

As you are aware, County Hockey Umpire Associations are not a part of the new governance framework and so we are now concluding our involvement and finalising the dissolution of our own Association.

Previous documents have been circulated and outlined our four-stage procedure for the dissolution process.

On April 27th we held a Special General Meeting to agree the necessary arrangements to expedite the proceedings.

We are now at Stage 3 and as required by the Constitution we progress to an Extraordinary General Meeting to vote formally on the dissolution process and confirm all the final details required.

• The date for that Meeting is Wednesday 8th June 2022 at 7.30pm.
• The Agenda for the meeting is being circulated to members and clubs. A link for the Zoom meeting will be circulated in due course.
• All members and club representatives are invited to attend.

The final date for completion of all DHUA business (finance including submission of expense claims and also appointments) is Tuesday 31st May 2022.

This deadline is necessary to allow our Treasurer time to prepare the final accounts in readiness for the EGM and to determine the final net total of our financial assets for dispersal to clubs.

Please note that subject to the agreement of those attending the EGM that Stage 4 of the process to follow the EGM will be as follows:

o DHUA Management Committee to agree the allocation of “funds” to member clubs based on number of teams and category of club at the 2019/20 season. This will be a simple vote at the EGM where over 2/3s of members present need to vote in favour of a proposal.
o All funds to be distributed as agreed by end of August 2022...ideally by early August. At that point the DHUA will be fully dissolved in accordance with the EH target dates.
I am sure everyone can appreciate the fact that this is a necessary formal process and that we need to be transparent and clear about the dissolution outcomes.
We need to keep things as simple as possible but the required final formalities must be applied.
We would welcome your support and understanding as we bring the DHUA era to an end and prepare the way forward for an efficient area organisation to follow. Please do try and join the Extraordinary General Meeting on Wednesday 8th June 2022 at 7.30pm.
Once again, may I take this opportunity to thank everyone for their help and support for DHUA over the years and I wish everyone in the hockey family within Devon every success in the future.
Best of luck too to our officiating team and all of the clubs involved in Finals Day 2022…enjoy the day!
Best regards to all
