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.
