What the committee does

The role of the Management Committee is defined in Section 7 of the Club's Constitution:

The affairs of the Club shall be conducted by a Management Committee (the Committee) comprising not less than six members. The Club’s Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Club Welfare Officer(s), Junior Cricket Coordinator and Club Coach shall be ex-officio members of the Committee. All members of the Committee shall have equal voting rights and voting shall be by a show of hands, unless otherwise agreed by the Committee. If there is a tied vote then the person presiding shall have a second vote.

The Committee will be convened by the Secretary and shall meet at agreed intervals and not less than four times a year. The Secretary may, at any time, and shall at the request of any three members of the Committee, call a special meeting of the Committee. Reasonable notice of such a meeting shall be given to all members of the Committee.

The quorum required for business to be agreed at Committee meetings shall be four.

The Committee shall be responsible for the management of the Club, its funds, property and affairs having due regard to the law on disability discrimination and child protection. Its duties shall be to -

a) control the affairs of the Club on behalf of the members and to deal with any matters not covered by the Constitution;

b) introduce new policies, review existing policies and deal with all matters incidental to the efficient conduct of the Club, including control of the club’s finances;

c) consider reports by the Club Welfare Officers;

d) fill any vacancies on the Committee occurring after the Annual General Meeting; and

e) appoint Sub-Committees as necessary and to co-opt additional members and advisers who may be non-club members invited to advise on specialist subjects.

An elected Committee member ceases to be such if he or she ceases to be a member of the Club, resigns by written notice, or is removed by the Committee for good cause after the member concerned has been given the chance of putting their case to the Committee. The Committee also has the right to remove a Committee member who (i) fails to attend 50% of the actual Management Committee meetings in a calendar year or (ii) leaves the Club to join and/or play for another cricket club. Appeal against removal may be made to the Appeals Panel. The Committee shall fairly decide time limits and formalities for these steps.

The Committee has the power to:

a) acquire and provide grounds, equipment, coaching, training and playing facilities, clubhouse, transport, medical, social and other facilities;

b) take out any insurance for club, employees, contractors, players, guests and third parties;

c) raise funds by appeals, events, subscriptions, loans and charges;

d) borrow money and give security for the same, and open bank accounts;

e) buy, lease or licence property and sell, let or otherwise dispose of the same;

f) make grants and loans and give guarantees and provide other benefits;

g) set aside funds for special purposes or as reserves;

h) invest funds in any lawful manner;

i) employ and engage staff and others and provide services;

j) co-operate with or affiliate firstly to any bodies regulating or organising the sport of cricket and secondly any club or body involved with cricket and thirdly with government and related agencies; and

k) do all other things reasonably necessary to advance the aims and objectives of the Club.

NONE of the above powers may be used other than to advance the aims and objectives in a manner consistent with this Constitution and the general law.
