NWC 16-18 EGM?

46 posts in this topic

Unfortunately due to the current state of affairs at youth level people have realised the need for change and as a result have put themselves forward.

 

If the existing committee are voted out then whoever stands for election will have to be voted in where two or more candidates apply for a singular position, where only one candidate is standing then, as per the usual process at the AGM where only a single candidate stands, they will take up that position.

so clubs need to decide is it better the devil you know or do they risk / gamble their vote of no confidence with prospect of the league run by volunteers they may not or know due to no opposition.

 

Any way as a club we need to decide whats best for us.

 

Most clubs we talk to admit there needs to be some kind of change but then you have to have faith in the unknown to do that.

Teamplayer I think its been clear from the outset you have been fishing for information regarding who the potential candidates may be.

 

Whilst I am aware of a number of them, I don't think it is appropriate to start naming people publically before they have officially submitted their interest in standing for the available positions should an EGM go ahead.

 

It will be down to the existing management committee to circulate the relevant information regarding the EGM once constitutional protocol has taken place, it will also be down to the Management committee to circulate the names of all candidates who are either looking to stand or be re-elected for the available positions to the member clubs, once a vote of no confidence has been carried.

 

What I will say is that the candidates who will step forward are more than suitably qualified on many levels to take the League forward in the best interests of the clubs and the sport at youth level.

No but I am struggling to decide whats best for our club devils we know or the a new committee we don't.

Personally I wouldn't want to be part of any committee new or old.

 

If the majority of clubs want a new committee then thats what should happen, I think clubs are stuck in limbo at minute is there support or not for a vote of no confidence. If yes get the ball moving and we can all make our decisions as I said earlier our club is sat on the fence at the minute.

But most people agree and even yourself, reading the above, admit the status Quo is not sustainable.

There is very clear support for a vote of "no confidence" and I believe there have been official written notices of support that now go in to double figures, so I do not think it will be long before everything is submitted in the correct manner in order to call the required EGM.

 

As I have outlined earlier once the EGM is called, if the vote of "No confidence" is carried then any person wanting to stand for any of the positions on the committee will then need to formally put in written notice of their intentions and also nominate the management position they are looking to apply for.

 

As a matter of course the names of the candidates who apply should be circulated via official correspondance to all the clubs in the NWC 16's-18's by the existing/interim management committee, prior to a vote at a further EGM.

It's a breath of fresh air to see the system being transparent and used how it was meant to be.

Maybe Marauder, but transparency has to be across the board from all parties.

 

Its disturbing to note that a dual registration policy for U18's has already been agreed for 2014, this was done during discussions at Regulatory group in Feb 2013 and Community Board in April 2013.

 

Now there are parties who have been part of those discussions that frequent this and the NCL forum, so I'll let you draw your own conclusions regarding transparency!

 

What we must do is be able to deliver clarity and direction to the sport at youth level and for that to happen all parties need to be completely transparent in relation to their objectives and agenda's.

I'm well aware of certain people who have over stepped their powers, or should I say took it upon themselves to make decisions without proper unbiased consultation.

 

Clarity and direction needs to be delivered at all levels

Is whats happening at NWC 16-18 League an isolated case or are there other leagues with members not happy with their committees ?

Problem will all this of course is what comes after a vote of no confidence? Problem is the agitators for a vote are unlikely to declare hose putting themselves forward for a new committee until the deed is done. The argument of better the devil you know may not be inaccurate.

There have been problems this year of that no doubt but it was always going to be a settling in year after the move to a predominantly summer season.

Things can be fixed or supported but those clubs pushing for changes and there seem to be a couple seem to have particular issues that are the focus of their own agendas.

On the one hand you have a "return to winter" camp and on the other objections flavour involvement of "pro" players. The fact the the current committee have experienced problems is a very convenient excuse.

I have my own opinion about the winter/summer debate but I think we should at least give the current arrangement a chance.

The pro issue comes down to an argument about allowing lads who in reality have only just signed with pro clubs, even if not on pro terms, returning to have a game with clubs they may have only left within weeks or clubs. We are not taking about Sam Tomkins.

We all know that success ebbs and flows from club to club, year on year and what may happen at one club may happen at another a year later. I have concerns that the whole RFL operational rules and pro player debate may have it's grounding in one club's objections of another's use of certain players. If so we should not base the future of the sport on such prejudices.

As for the aregunent about operational rules these would be the underlying rules on the basis that the sport is supposed to be one. My understanding is there is a very good basis for these rules following a case in which a young lad died a couple of years ago playing RL but there being being confusion about the responsibility for whose rules he was playing to. Having overreaching RFL rules would simply put the sport in line with every major sport in the UK. Competition rules would simply lay over those ie NWC rules regarding transfers etc.

As for the amateur / pro debate I'm sick of the fact that Rugby League people who have spent a century complaining about the prejudices of Rugby Union can't see the irony of their stance. Some amateur RL are more anti pro RL than RU ever where. It was no accident that when RU went professional they described the sport as "open". It is only in RL that the distinction between pro and amateur continues to be so decisive.

Lets all just play the game. Lets cut the BS that detracts and the politics of the mad house.

If those individuals manage to pursuade 30% of the NWC 16-18's club secretary's to sign their proposal they better be ready to explain what it is they want to do and how it'll be better.

At the moment I think others need to know who it is that making the moves and how they intend to move things forward.

An EGM needs to be specific about it's intent.    It has to be in motion form.     It has to be ready to take up the consequences of the vote , and phrased in such a way that all those who vote know  what will happen thereafter.

 

If you want support Lord C then you need to spell out your plan to the clubs.. Or you are just playing the 'smoke and mirrors ' game.....

 

If I ever faced a successful vote of no confidence than you would't see me for dust........no-one with any integrity on Management would stop thereafter.

 

So if your issue is with certain individuals that you believe are getting it wrong and need to be removed , then that is where you need to target your motion. Phrase it properly , if you have the balls.....and be ready to tell the clubs your alternatives.

 

Needless to say , I expect an 'off the park ' resolution in due course.....

Del.........I could be wrong, but I think the reasons have been clearly outlined as to why the vote of no confidence in the committe as a whole has been submitted, what the potential new candidates are looking to achieve and even example structures that could be implemented to address certain important issues.

 

Perhaps you need to get up to speed...........or are you still deliberating your answer to the dual registration issue at NCL level on the OA RIP thread?

Maybe you need to bring us all up to speed then as the only proposal I have seen is the idea for the fixtures. So does that mean that everything else in the constitutionstays the same transfers, registrations, etc

Before they're in a position to "recommend" anything I think they need to explain what they intend and how it would be better.

At the moment they seem to be more about what's gone wrong. My opinion as set out about is that there seem to be 2 camps. One relating to a return to a "traditional" season and another whose beef if with "pro" players returning to their amateur clubs. I'm not suggesting they have an agenda but they need to be clear to avoid people coming to their own conclusions.

 I think you will find the most important aspect for any new committee will be their desire to engage with the membership regarding various issues, in particular the now ratified final draft of the RFL's Operational Rules.

 

After going through the Regulatory Group and Community Board this final draft of the operational rules are now for the clubs to debate, review and fully understand before deciding if they, as members of the league, wish to adopt them via a democratic vote.

 

Potential new competition structures have already been outlined in order to cover the entire spectrum of ability that encompasses each age group, again this is an issue for debate in order to find the most suitable regular program for ALL concerned.

 

The possibility of commercial sponsorship has also been mentioned with a view to supporting other initiatives the NWC could potentially take a lead on.

 

Progressive, positive and structured change will I feel be something any new committee has the potential to achieve should the people looking to step forward have an opportunity to do just that.

Can these proposals be read anywhere.

Note what you say about new committee but shouldn't their views be aired before there's any "beauty parade"?

A number seem to have taken against the operational rules because its the RFL. Has anyone stopped to consider why they might be needed.

Do you think other leading sports worry about the governing body of the sport having rules the league need to adhere to? That doesn't stop local leagues having their own constitutions.

Have you read the operational rules and if so do you think the proposed rules benefit the community game ?

Every one in administration acknowledges the need for clear open and transparent guidelines for leagues to work to, with a common theme recognising the needs of each section of the game .

ONE FIT DOES NOT SUIT ALL .

So why are they needed and should the operational rules not identify the needs of the whole game ?
