STAKEHOLDER SUBMISSIONS

G-7; 1-e; I am pleased you have included this. There have been many members here abusing this. Decidng not to play anymore  and cancelling their AP's. The contract is an annual contract not a weekly contracat.

N-16 Excellent

Plus the treasurer is also appointed according to Sec N-14

N-30 Duties of Secretary;1 The secretary of the club is a person who is democratically elected by the club's membership...... seems to be contrary to what is written in sec N-14 which says the secretary is not elected but appointed by the executive committee?????

I believe our Fees should increase every at the rate of 3%.

The CPI to March 2023 is 7.7%

The 3% would be $17.91 an increase of 34cents per week.

I submit that we change our club shield to something that represents Tokoroa better. My design has the old products tree for history and dark green for grass and trees. The axes for the bushmen and the stag for the Tokoroa pines hunting abundance. It can be used for ball markers and shirts to sell. Another good revenue stream

A description of the role and responsibilites of each role

I believe the secretary and Treasurer

should have voting rights if a paid position then no. I believe these are key positions in the organisation and they are working positions with hands on.

I believe we do not need a vice president when we have a president and pass president on the executive.

 

The vice president doesn't need to make a report, as the president in his report, will be reporting on events ther club has conducted, and how the committee has performed and the acheivments they've completed.

The immediate past president will automatically fill this position upon being deposed as the president from the last executive committee. And shall stay in this position until s/he resigns, or is removed as contained in this constitution. The appointment of past president will be conducted as contained within this constitution of appointments.

That the Annual General meeting of the Tokoroa golf club be held no later than the 15th of December in any calender year.

Life membership. Where it says life membership can only be by referral of the executive.

Should read, Life membership would normally be referred/only by the executive of the Tokoroa golf club executive committee, should also allow for a resolution from within the membership as prescribed by motions by a mover/seconder as contained in this constitution.

Or a referral somewhere that allows this to be done.

The annual general meeting will be held yearly, and conducted before the 15th of December in any one year.


Absence from meetings. Not with out the express permission of the President upon each request made on each occassion which may arise.

The executive committee should consist of:  


1 x President.

1 x Past President.

1 x Vice President.

1 x Men's Club Captain.

1 x Ladies Club Captain.


Treasurer and Secretary are not elected by appointed.  

There are not to many lions native to Aotearoa.

AUTHOR SUBMISSION AND NOTES

Bryce Hamiton, National Director of Advocacy for Working for Workers Limited provides the following submission for the consideration of members of the Tokoroa Golf Club Incorporated as a Stakeholder.


The Club has a number of obligations pursuant to a signifigant number of acts of law in relation to employment. Those obligations are fundamental lawful obligations and duties and actions to fulfil those obligations MUST be undertaken.
The club will also have policies and proceedures that address this obligation and provide how Officers of the Club, and Employees of the Club, must conduct themselves in relation to all matters of employment and employment relations.
By way of example, employees must have an employment agreement, and the empoyment agreement must be complaint, and updated on a regular basis so as to keep up with subsequent amendments, legislative changes and other matters.   - s. 54 of the Employment Relations Act 2000; and  - s. 65 of the Employment Relations Act 2000 are a good starting point.
A list of acts that provide the obligations of the Club as an employer can be found at: https://www.employment.govt.nz/about/employment-law/legislation/ however this list is a bit out of date due to signifigant changes like the Protected Disclosures Act 2022, the Employment Relations (Triangular Employment) Amendment Act 2019 and the non- inclusion of the regulatory frameworks such as Health and Safety at Work (General Risk and Workplace Management) Regulations 2016.
