Why attend the BC School Sports AGM?
Every BCSS Member School has a vote at the BC School Sports Annual General Meeting. The Legislative Assembly at the AGM makes decisions on competitive and operating policies and regulations that will affect the way that your school's extra-curricular athletic programs function. The school representative must be a Teacher or Administrator assigned to that Member School, and should be knowledgeable about school sport issues and concerns. Additional school observers can also attend for a small fee.
To ensure that your school's views and opinions are well represented, attend the AGM, or complete the online voting (more information coming soon). Member Schools have a direct say in the governance of BC School Sports by exercising their AGM vote on all issues that affect school athletics.
Attendance at the AGM will:
- Enable the school representative to influence (through voting) the decisions made regarding school sports,
- Help the school representative to be better informed about rules and policy decisions, and
- Provide valuable networking and information-sharing experiences with teacher-coaches and administrators from across the province.
Is there financial assistance to attend the BC School Sports AGM?
BC School Sports contributes financial assistance for travel from/to each of the BCSS Designated Zones outside of the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. The money is allocated to ensure that schools representing all parts of the province will be in attendance. BCSS attempts to keep the over-all costs and costs to individual schools as low as possible. There is no registration fee for the official school representative to the BC School Sports Annual General Meeting. The registration fee for observers to the meeting is a minimal $15 per person.
