A Special General Meeting of the N.Z. Standardbred Breeders Association Incorporated (The Association) will be held at 7.00pm Spectators, Addington Raceway, Jack Hinton Drive, Christchurch on Thursday 7th November 2019
The sole item of business;
To consider a proposal to replace the current rules of the Association and adopt a new constitution for The Association.
The proposed draft constitution is attached.
HRNZ has adopted a new board structure removing the kindred body appointed positions to that board. The Association’s current rules needed amending to remove the HRNZ representative position from the NZSBA Executive.
The Executive of The Association is taking the opportunity to modernise and update all the rules. We have used as a template the model constitution for national sporting organisations prepared by and recommended by Sport New Zealand.
The new constitution is largely the same as the previous except:
Update the objectives to recognise integrity in harness racing and breeding and animal welfare;
Abolish the HRNZ representative position;
Retain two Executive positions for each of the three affiliated bodies;
Increase the Executive to eight people by allowing the Executive to appoint an additional two people; and
Generally modernise the administrative and other arrangements
Questions prior to the meeting are welcome. Please email email@example.com
