The Board will introduce Pat Aiyenuro and James Williams who join the Board following this AGM as a result of the recent elections.

The Board will also seek your approval of the extension of the appointment of Hilary Philbin as British Fencing’s President to expire at the first Annual General Meeting of British Fencing after the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

John Troiano, in his capacity as Chair of the Board’s sub-committee for Audit, Governance & Risk, will take members through the accounts and finances and respond to your questions. The accounts have been published on the BF website here. Questions should be submitted in advance using the registration form here.
