AGM meeting Motions and comments

The deadline for new business for the upcoming AGM has come and gone.  We only had one member bring up any new business so instead of doing a poll through the Internet, the member’s new business will be presented at the AGM and voted on there.

 

New Business to be voted on at the AGM

 

 

          12.10 Permit Players

                a) Players defined as “PERMIT PLAYERS” are currently signed on any roster. They

                    “PERMIT” when they play for a team other than the team they are currently signed on.

                     PERMIT PLAYERS can only play for teams within their division or divisions higher than

                     their current team.

                b) Permit players are only allowed to participate in regular season games

                c) Every team is allowed to use PERMIT PLAYERS for 12 matches (any portion of a 3 set

                    match) per season, in accordance with 12.4.b). If a team goes over their limit, they will

                    default all matches played with the illegal player.

                d) Every player is allowed to “PERMIT” 4 matches per division (coed and women’s) during

                    a season in accordance with 12.4.b). If a player goes over their limit, they will be

                    suspended the following week of league play in the division in which they over

                    permitted.


Motion 1  amendment to bylaw 12.10c  to have team permits doubled.  If the motion is

             passed the bylaw would then read “Every team is allowed to use PERMIT

             PLAYERS for 24  matches(any portion of a 3 set match) per season, in

             accordance with 12.4.b). If a team goes over their limit, they will default all

             matches played with the illegal player.”  If the motion is not passed the bylaw

             will not be changed.

 

Motion 2  amendment to bylaw 12.10d to have player permits doubled.  If the motion is

             passed the bylaw would then read ” Every player is allowed to “PERMIT” 8

             matches per division (coed and women’s) during a season in accordance with

             12.4.b). If a player goes over their limit, they will be suspended the following

             week of league play in the division in which they over permitted.”  If the

             motion is not passed the bylaw will not be changed.

 

 

 

          2.2 All terms of the executive are one year in length, with the exception of MALs

                    and Treasurer, which are two years.

                a) As of January 1, 2012, any executive member that resigns or is asked to resign

                     from an executive position due to inappropriate conduct may not rejoin the

                     executive in any position for 3 years/seasons following the resignation.

  

The members wanted the executive to further clarify this bylaw.

 

Motion 3  to have the following statement added to bylaw 2.2a stating that “A vote must be

             held by the executive without the member in question present and the vote must

             be unanimously in favor to have the member in question removed”

             A vote yes will pass this motion to the current bylaw.  A vote no will leave the

             bylaw unchanged.

 

 

 

I encourage all members of SAVA to discuss these new amendment proposals among yourselves over the next 3 weeks.  You can then either inform your team representative so they may vote on your team’s behalf or you can come to the AGM and cast your own vote for or against the proposals.  I will be holding a short discussion among the members present at the AGM before each vote.  Bear in mind the deadline for new business has passed and the voting will be held only on these 3 motions as stated here.

 

 


Teams that had their games cancelled because of gym space will be reimbursed $45 for each week of cancellations per division.  The amount will be added to the remainder of teams’ performance bond and cheques will be handed out at the AGM.


The AGM will be tentatively held on Wednesday, April 17 at Kelsey Campus Auditorium, room 104 doors open at 6:30 pm, doors CLOSED AND LOCKED at 7:00 p.m.  Rental pending.  

 

Teams without a representative at the meeting will lose preference for a spot in the league

New Teams: Will want to get there early to have your name added to the waiting list because the order on the list is the order of preference.  

Executive members have preference for spots in the league including a new team with a member on the executive.

If you or one of your team members are interested in being a part of the executive read through the positions available to make an informed decision. A full description of executive positions and duties are posted in the bylaws on the website.


Looking forward to seeing everyone there.


Thanks for your time


Jason McFarlane

SAVA President
