2018 NSGA Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting of the NSGA will take place at the Glen Arbour Golf Club, Halifax, NS on Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 1:00-3:00pm.
All club and members are welcome to attend.

The Board of Directors of the Nova Scotia Golf Association is proposing changes to the existing bylaws. These changes will be voted on at the NSGA Annual General Meeting. The current NSGA bylaws can be found by clicking here. If approved the bylaws would take effect on January 1, 2019.

The amended bylaws can be found here along with a detailed summary of the changes which can be found here.
As we approach the changes in the Sporting World with the implementation of the Revised Rules of Golf (2019) and the World Handicap system (2020), as well as changes in Sport Nova Scotia for funding and support of the NSGA, has led to the requirement for changes to the NSGA Bylaws. To do this we have to created a Strategic Planning Committee.

The Strategic Committee was tasked with reviewing and updating our Bylaws, Policies, Procedures and Terms of Reference.  The first step was the Bylaws and it has been completed for implementation January 1, 2019.  The Proposed Bylaw-2 January 1, 2019 maintains all of the appropriate details that were in the Bylaw-1 October 28, 2012. As you will see that there are very few changes in content, rather the format, presentation and wording have been streamlined to more modern language.

A detailed summary is provided but the primary Changes are:
  • Adding the Objectives of the NSGA from the Memorandum of Association
  • Remove areas that detailed Policies or Terms of Reference.
  • Align topics to make the Bylaw easily read and understood.
  • Creation of two new Committees (Strategic Planning and Heritage)
  • Bring our Bylaw in line with Golf Canada and Sport NS requirements.
  • Restructure the Format of the Bylaw.
In preparation for the AGM we would like to host a conference call to review the changes and address any questions that may arise from the proposed changes to the bylaws.
