Clubs are reminded that the 2016 AGM of the Association is currently scheduled for Sunday 27 November 2016, venue and time to be confirmed.
Although the Management & Rules Committees will both be bringing forward proposals for Rule changes, clubs may also do so - provided always that notice of such proposals is submitted by 5pm on Thursday October 27, and are proposed by a minimum of 3 clubs. A consolidated list of proposals will be submitted thereafter, with 14 days permitted for clubs to submit amendments. Clubs considering proposals are however encouraged, if they feel it would be helpful, to make initial contact with the Association Secretary on issues of drafting. The Management Committee will be proposing that in addition to changes affecting season 2017 a formal process of reviewing the entire Constitution in light of recent statutory requirements and to meet the requirements of charitable status, including separating out the Rules of Competition, be put in hand over the coming 12 months.
Teams which have not already done so who wish to apply for election or re-election, or who wish to withdraw, are reminded that they should do so by November 1st 2016. Unless however there are withdrawals, shortage of pitches means that the Association may be unable to elect new teams who require City pitch facilities.
Currently, it has been confirmed that all of Ellon, Cults and Gordonians will be applying for re-election of their second teams to Grade 4.
