Special Resolution & General Resolution for 2018 AGM

“A Special Resolution for the consideration of the Members of the Association, at the Annual General Meeting to be held at Regina, Saskatchewan on October 20, 2018”

New Bylaws

WHEREAS THE ASSOCIATION is the Sports Governing Body for the game of Baseball in the Province of Saskatchewan;

AND WHEREAS there is an expectation by our Members as well as by those organizations and individuals who are affiliated with or do business with or provide funding from time to time to the Association,  that it is governed thoughtfully and effectively  in all of its circumstances;

AND WHEREAS the current Bylaws of the Association have been in effect for a number of years, with minor amendments from time to time as approved by the Membership;

AND WHEREAS the current Bylaws lack the organization, and purpose and clarity that is reasonably to  be expected in an effective sports governing body, by its Members, and by the members of the public

AND WHEREAS new Bylaws will serve to address  and resolve and provide the purposes and clarity as herein contemplated and to raise up the Association to a high level of governance in a “not for profit” organization;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:

That the Association approve the form of revised Bylaws of the Association, in the form annexed hereto and forming part hereof.

Moved by: Charlie Meacher

Seconded by: Bert Kauf

A General Resolution for the Consideration of the Members of the Association, at the Annual General Meeting to be held at Regina, Saskatchewan on October 20, 2018, to follow the Special Resolution to amend the Bylaws”

Term Limits of Officers

WHEREAS THE current Bylaws of the Association may be unclear as to term limits of office holders in the Association, and thus may permit Members who have served as Officers in the Association, to seek re-election after having completing his or her term of office;

AND WHEREAS there is a good and important reason in the governance of any organization ( but including specifically the Saskatchewan Baseball Association) to encourage “Board Renewal” and “Officer Renewal” for the good health of the organization;

AND WHEREAS the Association should have time to consider the benefit or detriment of the current lack of clarity on “term limits” and to address and confirm this in the form of a future amendment to the Bylaws for the consideration of the Membership by a Special Resolution to the Members of the Association at its next Annual General Meeting;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:

That the Board of Directors form a committee to review term limits in the context of the good governance of the Association and to recommend to the Membership the application of any amendments to the Bylaws to correspond with best practices for the Association in its circumstances.
