2019 AGM Attendees  

On Monday night the 2019 Lacrosse Victoria Annual General Meeting held a virtual meeting with 27 people on the call. The meeting was smooth and deftly run by Lacrosse Victoria Interim Board Chair, Theadora Kwas. Theo added, “I want to thank all who attended and the clubs for adjusting to how the meeting was managed. We had great attendance and thank you to all who helped facilitate the meeting remotely.”

All motions were passed by unanimous vote. Lacrosse Victoria Interim General Manager Michael Sholly said, “I would like to thank the clubs, especially presidents and secretaries for their patience and assistance through this process. Conducting the AGM virtually was a first for the organisation and it was very well administered by the Board. It has been a pleasure getting to know some of the presidents and secretaries over the phone and email and I look forward to meeting you in person when we get the season going!”

Two new Board members were welcomed and three more returned for another two-year cycle. Lacrosse Victoria would like to welcome Rebecca Chapman and Ben Stone to the Board and welcome back Simon Atkins, Jessica Symonds and Elena Theinschnack. Next Monday, the Board Meet Me Monday series will resume to meet the rest of the Board members.

Lacrosse Victoria would also like to thank Anne Hodder for her service on the Board as she finished her tenure last night. Interim Board Chair Kwas thanked Anne after the presentation on the Financial Report and touched on some highlights from the 2019 calendar year. She pointed to the strength of the High Performance and Representative Teams in 2019 winning five of six possible national championships and the strength of the Victorian presence on the Australian Under 19 Girls Team as well as Australian Men’s Indoor Team. Lastly, she thanked former General Manager Sam Watson for his service and dedication during his time at Lacrosse Victoria.

Thank you to all who attended last night. Stay tuned to the LV social media channels for some fun club challenges as well as the upcoming stringing and coaching tutorials!
