AGM, Website, Registration, Training and Committee Meetings

Thank you to everyone who attended our AGM last week. It was by far the best turnout for a long time with a lot of robust discussion and a great start to our season.

Congratulations to all of the new Executive team and Committee members. For the first time in a long time we filled all roles and with 8 different people so the club is definitely moving in the right direction.

The minutes from the AGM and the treasurer’s report are available for you all to read.

A big thank you to Mark Parnell for our new website, for those of you yet to check it out, it is a HUGE improvement on the old website and will help our club continue to move forward in the digital space.

That brings us nicely along to registration. Rego is now open and can be accessed through our website. You will be required to register before you can play any games as the association is provided up to date information on players who have paid their HNSW component.

This year we have also introduced a deposit for the Emu Plains fees to be paid at registration. You will have the option to pay the full fees, or alternatively pay a deposit and part payments through the season. All fees are due to be paid in full be the end of May. We pride our self on being flexible and if you are experiencing difficulties, we strongly urge you to chat to one of the executive or the competition representatives and we can try and work something out.

For our club life members, hold off and I will send you directly information on how to register without paying the Emu component.

Training kicks off this Tuesday with juniors from 6pm to 7pm and Seniors from 7pm to 9pm. We hope to see everyone down there as much as often this season.

We will also be having monthly committee meetings this season for all to come down and raise issues, ideas and improvements for our club so we can keep going forward.

The first meeting will be the 16th of March at Kingswood Sports Club. We will leave the agenda to this meeting largely open however we will be looking at establishing and defining a few new roles in the club and we would love as many people as possible to attend and help with this process.

There are a number of coaching and managing positions still available so if you are interested in any of these please let us know and we can have a chat about them.

We are also holding our registration day tomorrow at KSC from 2pm, so please head on down and meet up with your Emu family again before we get into the season proper.

Anything else, please send us an email or give us a call.
