The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of North Coast Football (NCF) was held in Coffs Harbour on Sunday, 29 November 2020.
The AGM was followed by the All Clubs Meeting when NCF and clubs reviewed the season that was; discussed the game as a whole and looked at changes for the 2021 season.
NCF also advised clubs that the surplus it made in 2020 would be utilised to enhance and protect the game:
- Providing financial assistance to clubs
- Preventing increases in NCF fees in 2021 to help retain and attract players
- Marketing the game to retain existing players and attract new players
- Providing a contingency to cover any costs associated with COVID-19 safety in 2021

At the meetings, NCF hosted a lunch for clubs and invited them to bring a volunteer each to represent all volunteers at the club. NCF wanted to say thank you to these volunteers on behalf of all volunteers. Each club president or secretary told a story about their volunteers, who are the backbones of their club.
