AGM Notice: IABA AGM Deferred.

The IABA AGM, scheduled to take place on November 28th in Belfast, has been deferred.

This deferral is to allow candidates in the elections to Central Council affected by the recent determination of Independent Membership Panel to exercise their right to an external appeal of that decision, using the mechanisms of Sports Dispute Service Ireland (SDSI).

A rescheduled date for the AGM will be issued at the earliest opportunity.

The AGM scheduled for November 28th was to have been a dual in-person and online meeting. Given the changing Covid 19 situation, it is likely that the event will take place online, only. An advisory will issue when the date for the AGM is re-set.
