The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has called for its inaugural Annual Convention at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) stadium from June 21, 2016. The conclave is scheduled until June 24.

The four-day conclave will include a series of workshops and meetings. The conclave will start with a workshop for media managers of all state cricket associations, which includes a session on digital media. It will be followed by a conference of coaches and captains, IPL Governing Council, Junior Committee and Affiliation Committee meeting.

The conclave will focus on steps to strengthen one of the biggest domestic cricket season of the world and ways to take IPL, the fastest growing league in the world, to new heights. Members will also deliberate on how to make the BCCI more transparent and efficient.

Anurag Thakur, the BCCI president, noted: "This is the first time BCCI is hosting a four-day long Conclave that aims at getting all stakeholders at one place and align everyone's thoughts for improvement of the sport."

"Timing of this Conclave couldn't have been better. We are about to step into one of the most exciting cricket seasons, and this is a perfect opportunity to bring everyone under one roof and discuss ideas and how to implement them," Ajay Shirke, secretary of BCCI, said in a media release.
