NSW Masters 50th Anniversary Lunch Postpone until 2022

Due to the current restrictions and ongoing border lockdowns we are experiencing, the Executive has decided that it would be better to reschedule our NSWMA 50th anniversary event until another date in early 2022.

We will refund the tickets sold so far, and start a new booking link once we have settled on a new date.

Agenda Item 6. - Amendments to the New South Wales Masters Athletics Inc. Constitution as Proposed by the New South Wales Masters Athletics Inc. Committee

  1. Committee

 

The current Constitution clause 4 (a) reads:

4         COMMITTEE

 

(a) The Association shall be administered by a Committee consisting of

            i.        The Executive:

President

Vice-President

Honorary Secretary

Honorary Treasurer

One of these officers shall be appointed the Public Officer of the Association.

 

 ii.         Other elected officers: 

    Registrar

Records and Awards Officer

Journal Editor

Media and Communications Officer

A representative of each of the categories of:

track events, field events, walking events and distance running events.

 

It is proposed the current Constitution clause 4 (a) ii. should be replaced with the following wording:

         Other elected officers: 

Registrar

Records and Awards Officer

Journal Editor

Media and Communications Officer

Championships Officer

A representative of each of the categories of:

track events, field events, walking events, distance running events, and multi events

 

The Committee is proposing to add the positions of Championships Officer and multi event representative to the positions on the Committee. These changes recognise the greater emphasis the Committee wants to place on running and coordinating events for NSW masters athletes.

The current Constitution clause 4 (d) ii. reads:

No committee member shall:

(a)       Improperly exercise powers conferred upon them, or

(b)       Fail to carry out duties properly delegated to them, or

(c)       Act contrary to the Objects, or

(d)       Display conduct prejudicial to the good name of NSWMA or the sport of masters athletics, or

(e)       Breach the IAAF Code of Ethics.

 

It is proposed the current Constitution clause 4 (d) ii. (e) should be replaced with the following wording:

Breach World Athletics Integrity Code of Conduct.

 

The Committee is proposing the change to the Constitution to recognise the IAAF changing its name to World Athletics and the change made by World Athletics from the Code of Ethics to Integrity Code of Conduct.

COVID Safety Protocols at Athletics NSW Interclub Competitions

Due to COVID-19 and NSW Government requirements, we will be delivering our Interclub events safely in 2020/2021

 

In order to be able to deliver events under the current NSW Government COVID-19 restrictions, the following protocols will be followed concerning our Interclub Competitions this season unless otherwise communicated:

  • There will be a maximum of 400 unique entries i.e. 400 total athletes that will be permitted to each Interclub competition. If you are registering for an Interclub event, we ask that you are 100% committed to participating at that event you register.

  • 65 spots will be available for registered coaches and club administrators to attend each event (upon pre-registering via a form provided before each competition), with the remaining spots being occupied by NSW Officials, Club Volunteers and Athletics NSW staff at each Interclub competition

  • Only athletes pre-registered accredited coaches, volunteers, NSW Officials, and Athletics NSW staff will be allowed to attend the event. Unfortunately, at this stage with the current restrictions, Interclub Competition events.

  • Carers for para-athletes will be permitted, upon pre-registering themselves on the form provided before each competition.

  • Athletics NSW will endeavour to provide the safest possible environment for all participants at every event that is delivered throughout the Summer Season 2020/2021

 

If you have any questions regarding the above changes, do not hesitate to contact us at competitions@nswathletics.org.au at any point in time.

We thank you for your understanding of these necessary safety precautions during this period, as we try to provide as many members as possible the opportunity to compete this track & field season. We will regularly update our valued members throughout the season to any further changes regarding the delivery of Interclub Competitions during the Athletics NSW 2020/2021 Summer Season.
 

Yours in Athletics
