The Committee met on three occasions between the IGM and the 2015 AGM, in April, August and October 2014 and is scheduled to meet once more on 28 February 2015. Issues that required higher consideration or decision were referred to the Council or the AGM.
Issues requiring continuing attention and which will be passed on to the incoming Committee are: membership of Swiss Olympic and the International Cricket Council (ICC).
The members of Cricket Switzerland in Season 2014 were:
Basle Dragons Juniors
Geneva Region Youth
Geneva X1 Stars
swiss Federation Of Cricket Umpires & Scorers (swissFOCUS)
Cricket Coaches Association of Switzerland (CCAS)
La Chataigneraie School
The Cricket Switzerland website was kept up to date throughout the season. A regular Newsletter continued to complement the website; the objective remained as publicising Cricket Switzerland
activities and news more or less monthly, depending on available information and newsworthy topics.
Switzerland’s membership of the ICC remained cancelled. Nevertheless, working relations with the ICC were maintained, by the SCA President. Dialogue included the continuing issue of Swiss
representation on the ICC. During the season the ICC maintained its position that it would not consider an application for membership unless Swiss Olympic membership was first awarded to a Swiss
cricket organisation. For its part, at the time of writing of this report the ICC was considering whether to adopt a proposal made by ICC to its members to possibly award membership to a country
even if there were two competing claimant organisations in a country, only one of which would be successful.
Pro-active dialogue with Swiss Olympic during the season concluded with that organisation suggesting that Cricket Switzerland submit an application for membership. An application for
membership was prepared in February 2015, in the German language (it being required by Swiss Olympic that German or French languages be used for communications). The German translation of
the Constitution will be submitted to the AGM for formal adoption. A French language version will be prepared for later adoption.
The formal process of consideration and decision by Swiss Olympic will conclude in the fourth quarter of 2015.
