Bowls In Focus : November 2009
Bowls In Focus 19 TWO ASSOCIATIONS TWO HISTORIES ONE DIRECTION A "yes' vote on December 3 and the subsequent unification of Bowls Victoria will ensure the future viability of our sport within the state. I trust that the 'Special Resolution' as proposed will attract your support and thus allow the Joint Working Party to proceed towards the objective. Graeme Hosken President RVBA The Joint Working Party has spent two years of planning, discussion and consultation to prepare the 'Special Resolution' and to help you make an informed decision. Your vote will decide the future direction of lawn bowls in this state and I am certain your determination will be very positive and in the best interests of our sport. Maureen Connolly President VLBA BENEFITS There will be:- • More effcient organisation • Better standard of governance • Duplication eliminated • Better business approach • Improved marketing • One affliation fee • Substantial cost savings THE JWP HAS:- • Prepared new constitution • Determined 16 regions for state • Consulted widely on proposed boundaries • Held several information meetings, Town Hall meetings, region meetings • Kept members informed with frequent updates on website and in this magazine • Sent out letters and special advice packages to assist clubs FOR YOUR CLUB:- To get both VLBA and RVBA members to vote to decide club vote. DELEGATES You (or your proxy) to attend Special Meeting on 3 December and cast club vote. DECISION OF VOTE This will be advised as soon as voting is completed. WHAT COMES NEXT? Both season 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 will continue to operate as they are now. Groups, Districts and Associations, and their committees will be the same, and PENNANT and STATE EVENTS will proceed under the same format. The JWP will become the Interim Board and will be responsible for the election of the new Bowls Victoria Board. They, in turn, will then proceed to appoint a new Chief Executive Offcer.
