Council Meeting report

On Saturday 15th October delegates from Cricket Switzerland (CS) member clubs met at the Restaurant Egghölzli in Berne for an end of season Council Meeting.

In addition to the short reviews of the 2016 domestic and international competitions at all age groups & genders, activities & the progress made against the Operational/Development plan were discussed.

A detailed report on the association's finances was presented by the Treasurer, including a preview of the proposed budget for 2017.

Another important topic was an update on the ICC-initiative to attempt a merger between CS and the SCV for fast-track re-admittance of Switzerland to the ICC. Valuable feedback was given by the members on the next steps.

Further, training requirements for next season were touched upon, along with proposals to amend the competition rules, all designed to improve and to continue to develop cricket in Switzerland.

Discussion on all topics was positive & constructive and some very good new ideas were developed during the afternoon.

The minutes of the meeting will be distributed to the club representatives in the coming days.

The next meeting will be the Annual General Meeting set for Saturday 18th February 2017.
