    2009 Nswca Agm

    The 2009 NSWCA AGM was held earlier today.

    The NSWCA Council for 2010 is:

    Code:
    President			Peter Parr
    Vice President			Bill Gletsos
    Secretary			Tom Accola
    Treasurer			Norm Greenwood
    Registrar			Peter Cassettari
    Tournaments Officer		Lou Damaschino
    Ratings Officer`		Barry Cox
    Publicity Officer		Vacant
    Club Liason			Shane Burgess
    Country Rep			Keith Farrell
    Communications Officer		Laura Moylan
    Webmaster			Vacant
    Member without portfolio	Brett Tindall
    NSWJCL Rep			Richard Gastineau-Hills
    NSWCA fees remain the same as last year.
    These are specifically:

    The standard NSW membership fee (including the club affiliation fee) is $30.
    The concessional membership rate is $20.
    Country membership is $10.
    The membership fee for those that have never been a member of the NSWCA is $10

    The Non Member - Registered player fee that entitles the player to have all their games for NSW based non NSWCA events to be rated but have no voting rights and cannot play in NSWCA events (which includes Grade Matches and ACF events) is $10.

    The NSWCA announced a profit of $11,683 which was an increase of $2,322 over the previous year.

    congratulations

    Hi All,
    Congratulations to all the NSW office holders for the forthcoming year.

    Bill as you are no longer President of NSWCA does this mean you will be posting more often on this BB where your posts have been few and far between .

    Congrats Bill on doing a difficult job over the last few years - being Pres has many many headaches most of which few people understand.

    Ciao

    In the vote for NSWCA President, Peter Parr brought with him a bunch of followers (grumpy old men?) and successfully defeated Bill Gletsos 17-11.

    For the information of chess players outside NSW, Peter Parr is the proprietor of Chess Discount Sales and Brett Tindall/Laura Moylan are associated with Sydney Academy of Chess. The other nine councillors have no known affiliation with any chess business!

    All eyes now turn to Melbourne for the CV AGM this afternoon!

    Good work Peter, nice to see the majority of NSW voters know what's good for the future.

    Winds of change.

    Regardless of whether Bill or Peter won the fact is an association of something like 600 members were represented at the AGM by around 5% of total membership. Thus the majority of voters didn't even bother to turn up to the AGM!*

    All other positions were filled unopposed so I suspect had Peter's nomination for President been unsuccessful then he would have been elected VP with no other change to the make up of the council.

    (I should note having been a member for several years this is the first AGM I have attended).

    Yes Peter signed up 5 mates on the day.

    Stephen Kerr - last played a rated OTB game of chess in December 1991.
    Jason Lyons - last played a rated OTB game of chess in July 1994.
    Joe Reif - last played a rated OTB game of chess in June 2003.
    Max Fuller - last played a rated OTB game of chess in December 2005.

    Also unlike the CV Constitution which gives total power to the CV President between CV Executive meetings, the NSWCA Constitution gives the Decision making power between Council meetings to the NSWCA Executive (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer).

    Constitutionally the NSWCA Council is required to have at least 10 meetings per year, however in practice it turns out to be 11, held toward the end of each month except November.

    By contrast the CV Constitution has no requirements for the CV Executive to ever hold any Executive meetings.

    Wouldnt the CAQ model be better where clubs have the votes (based on membership numbers) and not individual members.

    The CAQ's model is ace IMO.

    Congratulations to all those elected (and to Barry for attending).

    One point I would make is that the last 2 NSWCA AGMs at least have been held at Rooty Hill. I couldn't have made it yesterday wherever it was held, as I was performing at the time, but it does seem time that it was held north of the bridge in 2010. Maybe at norths or Manly?

    The NSWCA long ago ditched the club based model.

    It is true that the CAQ model would have prevented this signing members up on the day to vote nonsense, but it does allow the possibility of other avenues of manipulation. Eg fudging club numbers.

    Im probably wrong, but doesnt the members have to be CAQ members to count for the club.
