Notices of Motion

Guidelines for submitting Notices of Motion can be found at clause 10.5 of the RNZRSA Constitution and clause 14.1 of the RNZRSA Bylaws. Both these documents are available online.

All Notices of Motion for consideration at National Council should be submitted by email to: nationalcouncil@rsa.org.nz 

Notices of Motion proposing changes to the RNZRSA Constitution must be submitted by 1 August 2024, while all other Notices of Motion must be submitted by 28 August 2024.

 

Nominations for National Vice President election

An election will be held during National Council to fill the vacant National Vice President position.

Information on the role and process for appointing a National Vice President can be found from para 6.1 of the RNZRSA Constitution and from para 12.10 of the RNZRSA Bylaws.

Nominations for the role should be submitted to nationalcouncil@rsa.org.nz using the form which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. All nominations must be received by 28 August 2024.

Once nominees have been confirmed, candidates will be asked to complete the questionnaire which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page to provide additional information for voters. 

 

Proxy votes

Associations that are not able to send a delegate to attend National Council in-person are able to attend online.

Online attendees are able to fully participate in National Council and will have the ability to vote during the meeting which should eliminate the need to vote by proxy.

In the unlikely event that an Association cannot provide a delegate either in-person or online, they can appoint a Proxy using the form which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

All submissions for voting by Proxy must be submitted by email to nationalcouncil@rsa.org.nz no later than 18 September 2024.

Travel, Transport and Accommodation

Associations and Affiliates are responsible for their own travel, transport and accommodation requirements. No transport will be provided from accommodation to Sky Stadium.

Car Parks will be available at the Stadium and information on how to book them will be available soon.
