North Ballarat AGM

The North Ballarat Agm was on tonight

With lots of ballot papers handed out the chairwoman was re elected winning a vote at ballot.

As well are a few other positions voted by ballot.

The thing that was a surprise was no time was elected for general business

With any general business questions not being answered as all general business needed to be submitted 14 days before the AGM of which nobody seemed to know of.
It would have been good for the board to answer questions from the floor but the meeting ended abruptly.

Club made a profit it seemed but is still paying off pokie machines & has a bank loan which was suggested at being paid off by 2021

Another thing that was of note was the ladies commitee has retired who have served supporters at the canteen for over 45 years.

The club had a total of 1009 paid up Adult members for season 2015

I'd suggest that at 1009 members, North Ballarat probably has one of the highest membership bases in the competition.

No general business unless lodged 14 days prior.. was that mentioned anywhere in the notice of AGM? I'm guessing not!

I've never seen more than 50 people at any of there games? What type of members are they Digs? Similar to Southport Sharks I'm guessing... Where every person who walks into the bistro and signs in is considered a 'member'. Think they have about 80,000 currently

Burra,
The North Ballarat Membership is based on a Gerrymander that Joh Beilke Peterson would be proud of.
The membership base comprises of the parents of under age junior players both football & netball are granted membership along with the dues to play each year.
I would suggest that 90 percent would not have a clue who the captain was or what colour we wear.
Unfortunately that will never change under the current group which is hardly a level playing field so they have got us by the orchestra stalls.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green
