Motion:

To change the Pakenham and District Basketball Association Incorporation’s Constitution, Incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012, Issue 7 – 20th August 2015.
Rules 49, as per the attached.


Rationale:

We are asking that people nominate in writing fourteen (14) days prior to the election day, so that all members are able to make an informed decision on whom they are going to vote for the next executive position biannual elections of our committee.

This will allow all eligible voting members to gain knowledge of the valid nominees intentions and what they would like to bring forth in to the committee during their 2 year stand on the executive committee of the PDBA.

Should this motion be passed, the next annual general meeting will see nominations for positions having to be received in writing to the Secretary at least fourteen (14) days prior to the scheduled annual general meeting being held.

 

 

Current Rule

(1) Prior to the election of each position, the Chairperson of the meeting must call for nominations to fill that position.  

(2) An eligible member of the Association may—

(a) nominate himself or herself; or

(b) with the member’s consent, be nominated by another member.  

(3) A member who is nominated for a position and fails to be elected to that position may be nominated for any other position for which an election is yet to be held.

 

Proposed Rule 49

(1) Prior to the election of each position, the Chairperson of the meeting must call for nominations to fill that position.

(2) An eligible member of the Association may—

(4) If no nominations for committee positions as detailed in Rule 42 are  received as per Rule 49 (2) (a) or Rule 49 (2 ) (b) then the Chairperson of the meeting must call for nominations of eligible members from eligible members who are in attendance.

 

 

New FIBA / Basketball Victoria Rules – 1st October…

Hi All,

 

As of the new season for domestic, and will be for VJBL quite possibly as well.

 

These will be added to our by-laws, and website shortly.

 

New Rules
Please be aware the FIBA rules have changed effective from the start of our new season (Monday October 1st).

To follow is a file outlining all the changes made, but the key changes for a domestic level are:-

– Technical fouls (player, coach and bench) will all now be two shots + possession (This is not the FIBA rule, but instead a state-wide by-law that will be used in VJBL and BigV as well).

– The inbound following a technical foul, unsportsmanlike foul or disqualifying foul shall now take place at the throw-in line in the team’s frontcourt (and they shall only be entitled to pass into the frontcourt).

– During an inbound in the final two minutes of the game, the referee administering the inbound shall give a warning to the defender (using signal and voice) about not reaching over the line and interfering with the inbound. Should this action happen, an immediate technical foul shall be assessed to that player.

– When the game clock shows 2:00 minutes or less in the fourth quarter or overtime, following a time-out taken by the team that is entitled to the possession of the ball from its backcourt, the coach of that team has the right to decide whether the game shall be resumed with a throw-in from the throw-in line in the team’s frontcourt or from the team’s backcourt at the place nearest to where the game was stopped.

– For a double foul to be called, the fouls must additionally have an equal penalty. For example if each team has 2 team fouls in the quarter, a double foul can occur, however if the defensive team instead had 5 team fouls (in the bonus), a double foul could not be called as the penalty for one of the fouls includes free throws and the other does not.
