The CNSW Board is formed from 7 Directors and this number is necessary so that the work of the Directors can be shared around and that there is a range of views. At the moment there are 5 Directors due to the mid term resignations of John Levick and Peter Coles meaning there are 2 casual vacancies. The Board has decided to fill these casual vacancies as soon as possible and is asking for Expressions of Interest (EOI's) from people who are affiliated to CNSW which if possible, should be returned by the end of the month. The board will review the EOI's that have been received at its next meeting on 10th October. An information document should be read by potential directors. People who fill the casual vacancies must 'retire' at the 2018 AGM and stand for election, however the time spent on the board between now and the 2018 AGM will not be considered as a term.

The CNSW Board has this evening accepted Peter Coles' resignation as a CNSW Director, effective immediately. The Board requested this due to the Chair having provided obvious support to a number of candidates which ran counter to the Boards commitment to impartiality in elections. The Board will continue to run the election for four (4) Elected Directors at the upcoming AGM and will advise Clubs if there are any changes to the list of candidates whom have nominated. The now two (2) casual vacancies will be filled by Board appointment at the earliest possible Board meeting.

The report has been emailed to club Secretaries and club Delegates and a number will be printed out for attendees at the AGM.

AGM and Election for Directors

In the past week you may have received communications from the Chair regarding the upcoming election for Directors. Unfortunately these communications contained inaccuracies, primarily about electoral procedure. Due to the number of nominations received, the Board had to determine a voting process that was fair and equitable to both nominees and voting members (the clubs). The election procedure was finalised by the Board at 8.59pm on Wednesday 9th August.

Clubs and their delegates have now received all of the election materials from the Secretary, including nominee information, election procedure and proxy voting slips. All of this has been checked thoroughly to ensure the election is conducted in accordance with the constitution and is fair and equitable.

We encourage you to give proper and due consideration to the 4 nominees you will vote for at the AGM.

LEAD UP TO THE 2017 AGM - Clubs have been emailed a document that outlines the timetable leading up to the 2017 AGM, which is being held on Saturday 19th August at 11:00am at Concordia Club, Tempe. At the AGM four of the First Directors will be retiring and all can stand for re-election, however some may decide not to. Some of the Officer position may also become vacant.

Clubs may also wish to submit a notice of motion for discussion and voting upon at the AGM.
