Martin Evans Proposed Notice of Motion

Equestrian Northern Territory (ENT) memebr and Vice Chair, Martin Evans is seeking voting members to support his Notice of Motion as part of the Equestrian Australia (EA) 2020 AGM.

Recently Marty was involved in discussion with the newly elected Equestrian Australia (EA) Chair, State Chairs, and representatives. Mark Bradley EA Chair placed emphasis on inclusiveness, collaboration between all the states and Territory would be a key success factor for EA to move forward as a more transparent organisation, working for its members, improving the cooperation between all horse sport organisations across Australia .  This was broadly acknowledged and supported by all of those who attended this meeting.

When Marty joined the Board in 2019 he was surprised to hear that ENT is not currently considered a voting member of EA, and therefore is excluded from voting rights, and often denied the right to be an observer at meetings.

As a result he firmy believe for ENT to secure its place in the EA structure for its membership and equestrian sport in the NT, ENT must be recognised as a Member of the Company.

Marty comments 'Without this there is no security for ENT'

To propose change Marty is seeking at least 100 voting members 'signatures' to support his Notice of Motion.  

Your signature can be provided by two methods:  Via Nominate or via email [email protected],au when emailing please inlude your full membership registered name and membership number.  Deadline is Friday 18 December 2020 9am NT time.

Members can provide their signatures from aroudn the nation, you don't have to be a member of ENT to support!
