British Wrestling Annual General Meeting

In parallel with the transition to modernisation of the British Wrestling Association, there will be a move towards greater transparency in governance and decision making.

Part of this transparency is the availability of information related to the Annual General Meeting.

 

 

 

 

 

Below is an excerpt from the modernised 2008 Articles of Association about the Annual General Meeting: -
