Annual General Meeting
On October 22nd at 6:00 p.m. at Westhills Stadium (formerly Bear Mountain Stadium) the Annual General Meeting for the Spartans Football Association will be held. If it’s raining, we will move to the upper level seating in the stands.
The Spartans exist because of volunteers. In fact, without people putting in time to make a difference, there would be no football at all. Most of the decision-making and organizing occurs at the Board of Directors level, and each year, people can volunteer to be on the Board and this normally happens at the AGM.
Coffee will be served and an agenda and financial statements to-date will be provided at the meeting. We welcome all parents, coaches and other interested parties to attend.
