Results of the AGM 14th May 2015

A special general meeting was held before the AGM regarding changes to the constitution. The motion involved a restructure of the current committee. The thought process behind this change was to create positions within the committee that focused on particular areas. In turn this would take pressure off the President ‘to do it all’ and provide a more defined structure and effectively create on field and off field management positions. The title of President was effectively removed and replaced with CEO whose key role is to run the administrative side of the club (off field). The role of DOCO was effectively removed and replaced with Operations Manager whose key role is to co-ordinate and manage the on field side of the club. These 2 positions will co chair the overall running of the club.

Other positions within the committee were modified to work with the new leadership group. Every committee person involved now has a defined role and set tasks within the organization.

This graph shows a breakdown of the new structure.

Congratulations to Brad Boyer who was appointed CEO at the AGM and Geoff Smith who was appointed Operations Manager.
