Dear all, as you would be aware the SGM re the new constitution is on tomorrow night.

The new constitution includes a vote being required for entry into an alignment arrangement.

It looks like it is largely a dead issue for now but you never know so I am keen to make sure this clause gets up.

Unfortunately the clause provides that only a 50% majority is required for an alignment and not 75%.

There was always the option to ask for an amendment to the new constitution so that there is a requirement for a 75% vote but that option has not been taken up.

My preference is that, rather than run the risk of a split vote between 50 and 75 resulting in no clause getting up that the 50% clause gets up and if there is enough interest to try for a 75% this happen at a later time.

See as many as can make it tomorrow night.

Cheers

Damian

That's interesting FD?

If that refers to an alignment, I was led to believe that crap had been put to bed and that Perth were not interested?

Good turn out. Both motions passed. I particularly enjoyed the 15 minute debate on whether the wording association or club should be included in the document.

Thanks Dazzler.
Is the vote allowed for 50% or 75% in relation an alignment?

The new constitution adopted last night provides for a 50% vote. As explained I did not agitate the 50%/75% debate because was worried it may split the vote and not be in the constitution at all. We would be the first club to ensure that members have a say in this issue.

I am now going to gauge support for proposing an amendment to the constitution at the AGM ton provide for a 75% vote.

It may seem to everyone like a dead issue and the WCE will probably get their own team but things can change, I mean who can even keep up with what happens in the VFL?

If you support 75% please let me know.

By my reading of it - clause 19 - any motion to align would be considered an ordinary resolution and therefore require 50%.

I would support an amendment at the AGM to make it 75% and from my reading that would require that such a resolution be re-classified as a Special Resolution.

Wim Rosebender asked an interesting question last night - "Were the WAFL presidents consulted on the WAFC announcement of concessions for EP?" Answer - No. He followed up - "Would the PFC be protesting to the WAFC about this proposal? - Answer - Yes.

To have this changed would we need to hold another meeting?
