It will be interesting to see if there's an election.  I'd be surprised if there was.
None last year and a good lifelong supporter was defeated by a new to the Club, Board preferred candidate the previous year.

I scrutineered that election.  It was interesting.

Who is up for re-election?
It has no mention of a name in the statement.

The President and Finance Director are both up for re-nomination at the AGM.

I thought they originally had different terms?

Anyone know? (not that it matters).

Lethal, you are correct as always.

The financial Director was specified in the Constitution as only being for 2 years. It would seem that due to an error by the club CEO and Board that that did not happen hence the Financial Director has completed a third years in conflict with Constitution.

Who ever is appointed financial Director this time around will only be for 2 years to ensure that President and Financial are not nominated in the same year.

While the original error is concerning to try and keep this a secret from Members as has happened is unforgivable IMO.

Isn't there a governance committee? What have they done about this?

Aldo, interesting question you raise "Isn't there a governance committee? What have they done about this?"  and I have been mulling over this and think I have the answer remembering I am NOT legally trained hence could be wrong.

Clearly an error was made and normal convention is that while the President ultimately is responsible for any error made by a club employee however it is very clear that this is in the area of responsibility of the CEO now gone. I feel sure that if an governance committee investigation was undertaken then what I said above would be the results and the CEO if still present would have had been counseled/disciplined. End of story LOL.

I presume the President and Board took advice from the Club Honorary Solicitor John Levy on an appropriate manner to handle rectification of the error in a legal manner that complied with any other limitations/restrictions within the Constitution and relevant State/Federal Legislation. Based on my personal knowledge of the Club Honorary Solicitor I have no issue with the rectification efforts undertaken by the Board.

It is fair to note for others general information that by the Constitution rule 18B Governance Committee advises that said committee is to comprise of the Honorary Solicitor (if appointed or such other person nominated by the Nominations Committee) plus the President or Vice President as the case may be plus one other Director selected by the Chairman of the Governance Committee as having experience in governance matters).

The one fact of serious concern is that it was kept from the Members ----- whilst embarrassing and quite rightly could lead to concerns by Members in regards to the Boards performance Members clearly had a right to know about this at an early stage and it should be made clear to the Board at the AGM that concealment of information to Members is unacceptable
