2018 Annual General Meeting Special Resolutions:

Notice of Motion – two (2) received:
  1. to amend Rule 24.1 of the constitution to include Member protection officer.

I wish to propose and amendment to the NSWBUA Constitution rule 24.1 

Rule 24.1 currently reads

” The Management committee shall comprise of President, Vice President, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Treasure, two (2) other elected Members and State Director of Umpiring.”

Proposed New Rule 24.1 to read

” The Management committee shall comprise of President, Vice President, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Treasure, two (2) other elected Members.  State Director of Umpiring and Member Protection Officer”.

My reason for the inclusion of Member Protection office follows on from Baseball Australia’s introduction  of their policy developed to cover all participants in the sport of baseball, with guidance from the Australian Sports commission and  providing a safe environment for which is free from harassment and abuse for all participants. To foster and promote respectful and positive behaviour and values, and it expects that is participants, officials, and spectators.
