Notice of Change to Constitution
 Any current constitutional rule may be open to change.
The change must be initiated officially as follows;
An official representative of any of the said 12 teams shall table in written fashion and on official documentation amendments to current constitutional rules. DRAFT proposals & amendments shall then be then forwarded to the Chair person (or agreed delegate) no later than two weeks prior to the AGM. The ‘Chair person’ (or agreed delegate) shall then collate and circulate all suggested amendments to each of the 12 teams for perusal. Changes are then allowed to be made after consultation with fellow coaches and must be re-submitted no later than 1 week prior to the AGM. The new proposals & amendments will, when ‘seconded’ at the AGM, be voted upon. No changes are allowable after final submissions are made 1 week prior to AGM.
Changes to the consitution will occur in an online AGM (see above). This will include making proposals to change the constitution and voting on those changes.
The process for this will be as follows:
The constitution will be broken up into it's major parts (e.g. Clause 1 Legal)
Each clause will have its own forum under the overall category of AGM.
The clause (in full) will be "stickied" so that it remains as the first post in the forum.
Each sub-clause (e.g. 1.1 Disclaimer) would be entered as separate posts.
All proposed changes are entered as replies to that post by quoting the sub-clause. Any additions or deletions should be clearly marked.
Any discussion of those changes should quote the proposal.
After one week of discussions and suggestions, the Administrators (in consultation with the Executive) shall post a final version each of the proposed changes in the appropriate forum.
The Administrators will then add a poll to each proposed change and coaches will vote as either "yes", "no" or "abstain".
This will be done over a two day period.
In the event of a majority vote, the amendment shall be written into The Constitution for the minimum period of one year or until amended.
Voting shall not be secret.
Reasons: since we have moved to an online AGM, the constitution needs to reflect this. It also gives guidance for future AGMs.
