Notification of General Meeting - 1 March 2017

The Cumberland FA Board of Directors have called a General Meeting to vote upon a special resolution, which would see an increase in the maximum number of directors from its current nine to eleven.

This increase would see a further two appointed directors, if needed, being added to the board to support the work of the County FA, whether that be as a business or developmentally, in what is an ever-changing political and economic landscape.

Please see below for associate members wishing to attend the General Meeting.

-    Date: Wednesday 1st March 2017
-    Time: 7.00pm
-    Venue: Hunday Manor, Winscales, Workington, Cumbria (CA14 4JF)
-    Further details regarding the AGM will follow in due course

More information on the special resolution can be found at the downloadable link at the foot of this page.

In order to provide further clarity, the Cumberland FA will be running an online web-ex session to go through the special resolution, in addition to the rationale behind, and answer any questions that associate members may have on the matter. This session will take place on Thursday 23rd February at 7.00pm. For an invite to the session, please email
