NOTICE OF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Notice is hereby given that the Macedon Ranges Basketball Association is convening an Annual General Meeting at 7:30pm on Tuesday, 11 August 2020 via video online (Zoom) conference.

The AGM will include the presentations of the President’s report and the financial statements for the 2019/2020 financial year, as well as the election of the executive committee and general committee members.

Please confirm attendance with the Secretary (secretary@mrba.org.au) by 5pm, Tuesday 4 August 2020 so that we can provide members with the link for the meeting.

We encourage members to get involved in the running of the MRBA. If the duties and responsibilities of a committee role do not appeal to you, we encourage you to consider joining one of the subcommittees. Subcommittees cover specific areas of MRBA operations such as domestic or representative basketball - please let us know if you would like more information about what this would involve.

The MRBA’s Constitution and By Laws require all members to be included in the members’ register.

Date of notice: 21 July 2020

Please note:

  • The MRBA is required to give members 14 days’ notice of an AGM
  • You will not be able to vote at the AGM or be eligible to be a committee or subcommittee member unless you have been included in the members’ register at least 5 business days prior to the AGM
  • If you are uncertain as to whether you have applied for association membership, please contact the Secretary to confirm
  • If you are unable to attend the meeting, another member may vote on your behalf by proxy. A proxy form will be provided on request

COVID-19: Basketball Cancelled 13 March Until Further Notice

ATTN MRBA Families: All basketball everywhere is cancelled from this afternoon (Friday 13 Mar) and until further notice on Basketball Victoria's advice as a COVID-19 public health precautionary measure. This includes:

  • SBA matches
  • Aussie Hoops
  • U10/U12 local comp training
  • U16/U18 Country Champs
  • Country Champs training
  • All Abiliites

Code of Conduct Breaches: Zero Tolerance Policy

Following consultations with Basketball Victoria, the MRBA advises that it has adopted a zero-tolerance policy on Code of Conduct (By-Laws Sec 1) and Member Protection (By-Laws Sec 2) breaches.

It is important that the entire MRBA community understand that these breaches may occur on or off the court, and applies to players, parents, spectators, coaches, game and competition officials, and committee.

Under this zero-tolerance policy, reports of breaches will trigger two procedures:

  • A decision to initiate Basketball Victoria Tribunal proceedings will be made within 14 days of the receipt of the report by the Association Secretary. This may result in up to 10-years, and in some cases a lifetime ban, from all facilities in the state of Victoria (http://basketballvictoria.com.au/tribunal-report/).
  • Where the individual acting in breach has applied and been approved for MRBA membership, an administrative process under Formal Procedures (Rule 6.3) will be initiated, which may result in suspension of membership rights.
