Proposed Constitution Change Print E-mail

file icon pdf Proposed Constitution Complete DRAFT.pdf

As indicated in the Notification of Annual General Meeting, the Board are putting forth a new Constitution to be considered by the members at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting. The cause for this is the new Associations Incorporation Act which regulates how incorporated bodies such as ourselves are run has been changed significantly. Failure to change our Constitution prior to October will render our current Constitution illegal, and we will be required to run the club on rules set down by the Government.

This new Constitution also recognized member categories, that will streamline the administration sector of our club. It will make it easier for our volunteers to administrate as the Constitution categories will directly reflect SurfGuard, the IT system we use as our membership database.

The Constitution Committee has worked on this project for several months was chaired by our Secretary; Kane TRELOAR and consisted of Paul ENGLEFIELD, Ben GRIFFIN and Iain DICKSON. Paul has previously served as our club's Treasurer and has a good working knowledge of the issues around the club's membership system; professionally he also has a good knowledge surrounding corporate governance and accountability. Ben is a life member at our club and has previously served as Club Captain on the former Committee of Management. He worked as a part of the committee that rewrote the Wye River SLSC Constitution some years ago and had input as to how constitutional change effected that club.

The Constitution Committee believe that this is the Constitution that will best serve our club going forward and this is a thought echoed by the Board who have approved it for forwarding to the members for consideration without any changes. Should you have any questions please contact the Secretary. The final document is posted below for your consideration.

1 & 2 K Australia Day Swim Print E-mail

It's on again, the 24th Annual Australia Day Swim. Major sponsor STONEHENGE HOMES has taken over naming rights of the swim after Mobil announced their withdrawal from direct sponsorship of the event after 20 years.

Mark Davis of Stonehenge is getting strong support from the local business community including Greg Hocking, Wayne Ely and Villis Pies, who are also assisting in supporting the event.

The good news for the swimmers is that this year the entry fee has remained static at $45 and that water safety will be enhanced with all swimmers being required to swim in a Hi Vis racing style Lycra singlet. Check out the Australia Day Swims page or Register Now website for details.
