Bowling clubs to vote on unification proposal


Bowling clubs to vote on unification proposal

The Umina Beach Men's Bowling Club will hold a special general meeting at 12:40pm on Thursday, May 13, in the Club Umina auditorium.

The meeting will vote on a proposal to unify Bowls New South Wales (BNSW) and Women's Bowls New South Wales (WBNSW).

Club secretary Mr Peter Springett said that bowls had been adversely affected by declining memberships and clubs in financial duress, with many closing their doors.

"By contrast, a unification of our associations offers a great opportunity to reinvigorate bowls," he said.

"Financial strength, a high-quality offer and cost synergies, and stability come from a large membership base.

"Unification will deliver a modern organisation and governance structure.

"There will be equitable representation from males and females on both the transitional board and the board of the new entity.

"The unification can achieve all elements of the new entity's vision to lead and enable the ongoing growth, success and sustainability of the sport for all current and future bowlers in NSW.

"The primary benefit will be improved member and club services including a focus on club health and development, and growing the game to ensure the sustainability of our sport in NSW."

Mr Springett said the member benefits, both transitional and long term, were substantial.

The unification would lead to enhanced member services, and increased focus and investment into game and club development, he said.

Members have been asked to arrive by 12.30pm to sign the attendance register.

Ettalong Memorial Bowling Club will also hold a special general meeting in the Clubhouse at Spiingwood St,. Ettalong, on Thursday, May 27, at 12pm.

The purpose is also to vote on the proposed unification of Bowie NSW and Women's Bowls NSW.

Club chief executive Mr Tim McGavin said the resolution would authorise the Royal NSW Bowling Association to amend its constitution and the boards of RNSWBA and the new bowls entity to take the consequent steps.

He said only registered bowling members were eligble to vote.
