In accordance with Clause 11(1) of the Constitution of the CIO the First Annual General Meeting of Croquet England will be held via Zoom at 10 a.m. on Saturday 16 March 2024.

The Constitution provides that the first AGM must be held within 18 months of the registration of the CIO. That registration took place on 22 March 2023. The Board of Trustees has resolved that this AGM should be arranged so as not to take place during the playing season and that a further General Meeting should be called in October 2024 so that the pattern of Annual General Meetings established for the Croquet Association may be continued for its successor.
