British Eventing Calls Extraordinary General Meeting

British Eventing have called an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM), after receiving a requesting petition.

The petition for the EGM was signed by 107 members of British Eventing, expressing no confidence in the Chairman and Chief Executive of the governing body. Under British Eventing’s ‘Articles of Association’, they must hold an EGM within a specified period, if 100 signatures are submitted.

Those who signed the petition have provided no additional information, apart from expressing their lack of confidence in the Chairman and Chief Executive and requesting an EGM.

British Eventing have stated that there will be no voting on the positions of the Chairman or Chief Executive at the short-noticed EGM. However, the EGM gives the British Eventing Board and members a chance to fairly consider and address concerns where necessary.


In an update addressing the EGM, British Eventing stated;

The Board takes seriously the views of members and will continue to do so, it is also acutely aware of its responsibility to both the members and for the future of the sport. We are lucky to have so many people who feel passionately about their sport and we want their opinions aired in a constructive manner.”

All members should have received an email or letter, inviting them to attend the EGM to voice their opinion. Alternatively, members can appoint a ‘proxy’ (someone to attend to speak and vote at the meeting on their behalf).

Members were reminded that although there will be no voting on board members position at the EGM, elections will take place for the Chairman and Chief Executive positions at their Annual General Meeting in November.

The EGM has been scheduled at short-notice for 2pm on Monday 22nd October, at The Loft, NAEC, Stoneleigh.
