    7. Notices of Motion: Proposed Rules Changes

      Resolution 1
      That the existing rule 2[b] be amended to read:
      All monies received shall be banked in the name of the Club in a suitable bank account with a registered bank in New Zealand.
      Resolution 2
      That the existing rule 2[i] be replaced by:
      To invest, lend and deal with the moneys of the Club not immediately required upon Securities with at least an AA credit ranking as the Club may think fit. 
      Resolution 3
      That the existing rule 5 be replaced by:
      The Signatories of the Club's Bank Accounts shall be the Honorary Treasurer and a minimum of two other members of the Committee.  Electronic Payments to be authorised and Cheques to be signed by any two of the Signatories.

      Moved by Wayne Kennedy, Seconded by Richard Taylor

      Rationale for rule changes
      The change to rule 2[b] is simply to add clarity and provide security by stipulating that the bank account must be “with a registered bank in New Zealand”. 

      The other two changes are required because the current rules of the club make reference to the appointment of Trustees and with investing in Trustee Securities. This terminology implies the existence of a Trust Deed outlining the duties, office and powers of the trustees, as well as a set of processes around their appointment, retirement and removal. In fact, there is no Trust Deed for the club and the use of “Trustee” in our rules harks back to language and use which differs to that in vogue today. The above resolutions are intended to remove any confusion or misunderstanding that the previous terminology might cause.

    8. Election of Officers and Committee for the year 2017/18:
      • President
