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

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.

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

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
