Field & Game Aus­tralia AGM

Field and Game - - NEWS -

The 2016 AGM was held on Novem­ber 26, 2016 at Attwood in Vic­to­ria.

Apart from the usual fi­nan­cial re­port­ing, the Na­tional Of­fice staff ran some short work­shops on mem­ber re­ten­tion and so­cial me­dia. De­vel­op­ment man­ager Daryl Snow­don, along with Martin Smith from My Clubs My Scores, gave a demon­stra­tion of the new scor­ing sys­tem cur­rently be­ing tri­alled by a small num­ber of branches.

Two small changes to the FGA Con­sti­tu­tion were passed.

The first en­ables the even­tual re­nam­ing of the Wet­lands En­vi­ron­men­tal Task­force (WET) to bet­ter re­flect the con­ser­va­tion ef­forts of mem­bers, the sec­ond al­lows the cre­ation of spe­cial, value-added mem­ber­ships for those who want to pro­vide ex­tra sup­port for FGA’S work.

A mo­tion put for­ward by Sale branch for FGA to adopt the “di­vi­sional” grad­ing sys­tem for clay tar­get shoot­ers sparked a lively dis­cus­sion that recog­nised the need for a re­view but did not pass.

A ma­jor­ity of branches sup­ported a pro­posal to con­trib­ute 50 per cent of branch mem­ber re­bates so that the or­gan­i­sa­tion can con­tinue to pro­mote the real story of Aus­tralia’s most sur­pris­ing con­ser­va­tion­ists an pro­tect our tra­di­tions.
