At a recent meeting of the Executive Committee held via Skype the subject of an Annual General Meeting (AGM) was discussed.
We are very conscious that according to our constitution we should have had an AGM at the World Championships in Busan during 2020, but as you all know this was not possible as the event was cancelled amidst the Covid pandemic.
It was then planned to have the AGM in Busan in 2021 on the rearranged dates, but again this was not possible.
The Executive Committee would like to hold the AGM in 2021, with elections, but at the time of writing await an announcement from the ITTF as to when and where the World Championships might take place.
If this again proves impossible we will look to the possibility to hold the AGM in September at the European Team Championships in Cluj Napoca, Romania.
We are sure you will appreciate that all such activities are not simple under the current restrictions, but assure you we will do all we can.
