Board Update: AGM, Reduced Debt, Legal Update

Annual General Membership Meeting and Election
The next Annual General Membership Meeting (AGM) will be held on Wednesday, April 26, 2023 at 6:00 pm in Bend. All members are invited and encouraged to join in person. 

It is important to note that beginning this year, members now vote for board seats, and we will have three board seats up for election/re-election this year. 

In addition to voting on board seats, the board will give an overview of the past year including a financial report by the treasurer. Our executive director, Wayne Price, will also present. More details including location and election details to follow in a few weeks.

Three board seats will be up for election or re-election:

Seat A: Open
Seat D: Currently held by Summer Brill
Seat G: Currently held by Paul Grignon

Randy Broadbent, past president, has decided not to run for reelection. Please join us in thanking Randy for his service over the past 2 ½ years. His leadership guided our club through a very turbulent time, and we would not be the club we are today, without him. Thank you Randy!

At this time, Summer Brill and Paul Grignon have indicated they plan to run for re-election. If you would like to self-nominate for any seat of the 3 seats up for election/re-election, all applications must be received by March 27, 2023. You must be a current member in good standing and you must indicate the seat you are running for. Each board seat carries a 3 year term.

If you would like to self-nominate for a seat on the Bend FC board, please fill out this application. All applications are due by March 27th.

The board will announce the nominating slate and disseminate the submitted board applications to membership by April 12, 2023.

Board Update
The board of directors held its regular meeting on February 21, 2023. The meeting minutes for previous meetings and current financials are posted on our website.

Our club received an anonymous donation of $200,000 to pay down existing debt. Our current debt balance is now $560,000. We successfully refinanced this debt and reduced our interest rate from 8% to 4%. We are now paying quarterly payments of both interest and principal. 

Legal Update

On December 29, 2022, three former staff members were convicted of Criminal Mischief in the Third Degree. The District Attorney’s press release on this matter is attached. As part of a plea agreement, former staff members paid a fine totalling $3,000. These funds were received by Bend FC and will be applied to our scholarship/financial aid fund.

The stay in the civil case against former staff has been lifted. Discovery and depositions have resumed.

The defamation case filed against the club by a former staff member is currently pending. The club is being represented by counsel paid by our insurance policy for this matter. 

We look forward to seeing you at the AGM in April. 

Go Bend FC!
