We have a legal requirement to hold an Annual General Meeting. However, the AGM should not be considered a chore. It gives us all the opportunity to gather together, review the successes and problems of the past year and to get new people involved in the administration of the League. In this way we will all ensure that the League continues to prosper and grow with the support of clubs and players in its activities and governance.
Each club affiliated to SAPL will, in the near future, receive a formal invitation to be represented at the SAPL Annual General Meeting on Thursday, 28 July at 7 pm in the Club de Petanque d’Adelaide club rooms.
Each Club will have one vote at the AGM, however all of your club members are welcome to attend and join in the process.
This year the positions of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer are not up for re-election
If your club has any propositions or resolution that it wishes to discuss at the AGM please inform the Secretary in writing in good time to allow circulation of the content to all members.
Please provide to the Secretary before, or at the meeting, the names and email addresses of your club President and Secretary, and also confirm the names and contact details of your club delegates to the SAPL committee. Remember, each club may nominate two delegates and has one vote.
The general view of committee work is given in the Poem:
O give me some pity, I’m on a committee, this means that from morning to night.
We attend and amend and contend, without a conclusion in sight.
We confer and concur, we defer and demur and reiterate all of our thoughts.
We revise the agenda with frequent addenda and consider a load of reports.
We compose and propose, we suppose and oppose, and the points of procedure are fun.
Though various notions are bought up as motions, there’s terribly little gets done.
We resolve and absolve, but we never dissolve since it’s out of the question for us.
What a shattering pity to end our committee. Where else could we make so much fuss?
But I can assure you that the SAPL Committee is much more focused than this.
