10/26/20: Updated Annual Meeting Invitation with Improvements


New Canaan Field Club

Annual Meeting – 2020



In response to suggestions from several members, we have improved the Annual Meeting and election process. Although we are not inviting members to attend in person, we now plan to make Zoom available.

We have also added the option of voting your proxy for or against individual nominees if you so choose, rather than only for the whole slate. 

And you may optionally submit comments or questions either on the proxy or by email to boardsecretary@nc-fc.com, since microphones will be muted during the Zoom meeting. So please submit your proxy asap (click here) even if you plan to attend the meeting on Zoom. 

If you have already submitted your proxy, you may submit again, and only the submission with the latest date will be counted.


The Annual Meeting of THE NEW CANAAN FIELD CLUB, INC. will be held at the NCFC Field House, located at 164 Smith Ridge Road, New Canaan, Connecticut, on Wednesday, November 11, 2020, at 8:00 P.M. Because of social distancing requirements, we are not inviting members to attend in person this year, but Zoom will be made available. However, you are welcome to use the box on the proxy form or email to me to submit any questions or comments you would like to be raised at the meeting.
