I hope that you are all keeping well despite the Cabin Fever that we are all suffering.
Bowls SA have directed that all clubs review their constitution, as they have been directed by the Equal Opportunities Commission to remove gender from constitutions. The Board of Management has been working hard to update our constitution accordingly. The 2 Vice President positions are recommended to become Vice President Club and Vice President Bowls Director. We were also asked to change the term for Board members to 2 years, to provide improved continuity with only half of the members retiring at any one time, this has been included. We have also reviewed other changes that needed to be updated.
Once the pandemic situation starts to return to normal, we wish to have a Special General meeting just prior to our Annual General meeting to endorse the constitution updates. I will be posting all information out to you all once we have a date for the AGM/SGM, this will include a full explanation of each change. If there are any queries, please dot hesitate to contact me or any other Board member for a clarification.
I will try to keep you informed of anything that is happening at the Club.
