Greetings old boys and friends of the School we love the most.
In the last quarter of the year 2021, the Alliance High School Old Boys Club (AHS OBC) will hold the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM is tentatively scheduled for mid/ late November 2021.
A key agenda of the AGM will be elections for office bearers and Executive Committee members for the period 2021-2023. Old boys are encouraged to update their membership status in good time in order to participate in the elections as candidates and voters.
This year we introduce an exciting opportunity to advertise in the OBC Annual Report. The Annual report provides a timeless opportunity to reach thousands of old boys and friends of Alliance with direct messaging on your brand.
Annual General meeting
The Annual General Meeting for the Club is tentatively scheduled to be held virtually in mid/late November 2021. The Club traditionally holds the AGM at the end of September. This year’s postponement was caused by the Registrar of Societies’ delay in processing prior-year Club returns in time to recognize the proposed 2021 AGM business. The Executive Committee and the Secretariat are working hard to ensure that the returns are processed in time for the AGM.
The Executive Committee will circulate the Notice of the 2021 AGM, Minutes of the 2020 AGM and the Financial Statements for 2020 in due course.
