In accordance with the USA Cricket constitution, all members of USA Cricket are invited to join the USA Cricket Board of Directors and Chief Executive for the USA Cricket Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Friday, February 21 at 7PM EST (4PM PST). 

This inaugural AGM will be staged immediately after the upcoming USA Cricket Board meeting in New York. It will be conducted via conference call and will review the highlights from 2019, present the year's Annual Report and discuss key objectives for 2020. Because of the logistics involved in a conference call with so many participants, we will not be able to take questions or invite discussion on any topics in real time. However, all members are invited to submit questions or provide comments or feedback about USA Cricket ahead of time to: agm@usacricket.org and we will do our best to answer as many of the most pertinent questions or provide additional information and context during or after the meeting itself.
