Notice of Special General Meeting



Over the last two years, the Rockhampton Golf Club (RGC) has undertaken a comprehensive review of the Club’s constitution.


This activity was required to ensure our constitution stayed current with Golf Australia’s expectations and with changes to State legislation governing the operations of sporting clubs and associations.


The proposed Constitution will bring us in line with most golf clubs in Australia and will serve as the document that takes us forward as the leading golf club in Central Queensland.


What do the changes mean?


The new constitution will not alter the day-to-day operations of the club.


The main changes will be to the Club's governance structures which will move to a Board and sub-committee model.


It will also provide fairer and more equitable dispute resolution processes, and properly recognise our current membership categories.


The proposed new Constitution has been approved by your Management Committee and a Special General Meeting (SGM) of the RGC members will now be held to vote on its introduction on:

  • Monday 21 March 2022 at 6:00pm in the Clubhouse .

What happens at the meeting?


At the SGM you will have two options:

  • Vote Yes to the resolution to adopt the new constitution.

OR

  • Vote No to reject the resolution to adopt the new constitution.

At the SGM, there will not be an opportunity to propose amendments to the document - the Committee will present the entire document in a resolution for acceptance to the membership.


Should the Members approve the proposed new Constitution, it’s planned date of effect would be 4 April 2022, to allow time for consequent work to be completed on the Club’s By Laws.


How can you get a copy of the proposed new constitution?


The new constitution can be downloaded here or hard copies are available by contacting the office.

Rockhampton Golf Club Management Committee
