Thanks to all those Clubs and Individual Members who provided comment on the draft By-laws circulated in January. The Board was pleased, and grateful, for the number and quality of contributions made. The Interim By-laws now replace the former By-laws, the Status Rules, the Rules of Racing, Points Policy and the Tinnie Protocols.
An annotated version of the Interim By-laws has also been posted which contains explanatory notes. The notes relate only to substantive changes made. A host of formatting, consistency and other minor errors were picked up Members and the Board and these have been simply incorporated.
The Interim By-laws are now in force and provide a robust framework for transparent and effective governance. However, they will remain open for comment until 24 April. This will provide members with the opportunity to seek clarification or to provide additional comment. It is expected the Board will issue final By-laws in May but will, of course, update them as required.
Comments submitted will forward directly to Directors.
