AGM of Ku-ring-gai Little Athletics Centre Inc.

As notified in the Information Handbook our 2016/2017 AGM is to take place on Sunday 7th May 2017 from 3.00pm at the Lindfield Sports Club, Highfield Road, Lindfield. Membership of the Centre includes our Executive Committee, Life Members of the Centre and all parents of children presently registered with Ku-ring-gai Little Athletic Centre. At the AGM we hold our Centre elections and approve our accounts but there are also likely to be important matters about which we believe our families should have the chance to present their views.

Our Constitution requires that nominations for Executive Committee positions be called for not less than 42 days prior to the AGM, that is Sunday 26th March. Contact for many parents is much reduced once our season ends on Saturday 11th March so all parents are requested to accept

this as the call for Nominations and Notices of Motion and if further information is required seek it from the President or any existing office holder within the next two weeks.

Please note the following significant dates:-

Sunday   9th April – Notice of Motions must be lodged with the Centre by this date.

Sunday 16th April – Notice of AGM including Agenda and Motions will be issued.

Sunday 30th April – Nominations must be lodged with the Centre by this date.

Our Executive Committee for 2017/2018 will be as follows:-

i)                   President

ii)                 Vice President

iii)              Secretary

iv)               Treasurer

v)                 Registrar

vi)               No more than 15 General Committee Members.

Note:-

  • Positions i) to v) above are the Executive of the Centre. No Committee Member shall be permitted to hold more than one Executive position concurrently, although a person may hold an Executive position and a General Committee Member position at the same time.
  • Duties of each Executive can be seen in our Constitution that can be located via the home page of our web site www.klac.org.au.
  • Most General Committee Members take responsibility for a portfolio but some General Committee members can be appointed without attachment to a specific portfolio.
  • Duties within each portfolio are currently being finalised. The names of the portfolios as currently listed in the Information Handbook and on the web site are mostly self-explanatory and unlikely to be much changed but more detailed information can be obtained from the President.

Other matters to note:-

Nominations – Must be:-

  • In writing.
  • Signed by two individual Members over the age of 18.
  • Certified by the nominee (who must be a Member) expressing his or her willingness to accept the position for which he or she is nominated.
  • Delivered to the Centre not less than seven days before the date fixed for the AGM.
  • Nomination forms can be obtained from our Secretary Ann Wilkinson ann.wilkinson@icloud.com or Paul Duffell phduffell@gmail.com

Ku-ring-gai Little Athletics is located at Bannockburn Oval, Bannockburn Road, Pymble

The Ku-ring-gai Little Athletics Centre was established in September 1977 and is one of approximately 200 such Centres in NSW. There are 39,000 “Little Athletes” throughout NSW, and around 90,000 nationally. Kur-ring-gai Little Athletics Centre Inc. is incorporated under NSW law, and is affiliated with the Little Athletics Association of NSW Inc. Our Centre is operated on a non-profit basis, and has no paid employees. Aside from qualified coaches whom we engage for several hours each week during the season, the Centre is operated entirely by parents and family members on a voluntary basis.

Our Centre draws on families throughout Ku-ring-gai including Gordon, Pymble, West Pymble, St Ives, Turramurra and Wahroonga – these six suburbs form the Centre’s “Club” structure. Ku-ring-gai Council maintains our track and field facilities in the best possible condition.

Ku-ring-gai Little Athletics Registration:

For the 2016/2017 season you must firstly register and pay through the Little Athletics NSW web site – www.lansw.com.au. Forms MUST be completed by a parent or guardian, rather than the athlete. Complete all details as fully as possible. The procedure includes internet payment of the registration fee. This year the Ku-ring-gai and State fees will total $150 for each little athlete regardless of the number of little athletes registering from a single family.

Once you have completed your registration and payment through Little Athletics NSW please print off a copy of the receipt, and then to complete the registration process and receive your registration numbers and other patches please present all the documentation, including your receipt and PROOF OF AGE for all new members on any Saturday morning at Bannockburn Oval from 17 September.

Need more information? E-mail: info@klac.org.au or phone Paul Duffell (9449-4831) Any child from 5 to 16 (as at 1st October) can join Ku-ring-gai Little Athletics.
