SEQDGA DRAFT CONSTITUTION UPDATE

Clubs and Members –

Please see below information regarding the ongoing works to the SEQDGA constitution. Clubs will be aware that submissions regarding the draft  constitution were due back to the SEQDGA Secretary on the Friday the 10th

May 2019  – in that time correspondence was received from member clubs and discussed in the board meeting held at River lakes GC – on the 18thJune 2019 – as such information has been forwarded to CPR Group (Corporate Governance Specialist ) to assist create draft two (2) of the document. These works will be ongoing over the next period.

See below copy of email forwarded to all district club managers on Tuesday the 11th of June -  2019


Dear SEQDGA Clubs,

Further to Paul's Fitzpatrick (GM Redland Bay Golf Club ) email to clubs of last week, please appreciate the SEQDGA Board have submitted the feedback previously provided by the Redland Bay Golf Club to CPR Group (Golf Queensland's Corporate Governance Specialist) for consideration.  Once CPR Group have provided feedback to the Board it is our intent to consider the feedback provided and communicate further with all SEQDGA clubs regarding the amendments proposed.  As I am sure you would all appreciate, this will likely delay the review and possible amendments to the existing constitution and the timeline to achieve this will need to be extended beyond the original timeline of June 2019.

Further notification on the progress of this review and when it is likely that this will be considered at a formal meeting of the SEQDGA Board and clubs, will be provided at our earliest opportunity.

Regards

Adrian Paterson
SEQDGA Secretary
