SACA Members voted to adopt a new constitution and legal structure for SACA at a Special General Meeting (SGM) held at Adelaide Oval on 7 June 2018.
The proposed reforms passed with a majority vote of 94% received in favour, more than the 75% approval required. Together with direct voting that occurred prior to the SGM, 6868 SACA Members voted on the proposal – a fantastic effort.
The SACA Board undertook extensive stakeholder engagement with SACA Members and affiliates, including Premier Cricket, which resulted in the final proposal voted on by SACA Members. The consultation process included extensive member research, ten member forums across South Australia and an online feedback tool, ensuring that all SACA Members were able to contribute.
SACA sincerely thanks every member who took the time to consider and vote on the proposal. With almost 7,000 SACA Members having voted, the significant majority vote provides a clear endorsement for the implementation of the changes.
This is an important step to position cricket in South Australia for a positive future. SACA is committed to leading the way, remaining accountable to members and striving to uphold the spirit of cricket in South Australia.
The result of the member vote means that SACA will transition to a nationally recognised not-for-profit organisation, being a ‘company limited by guarantee’, that is governed under a modern new constitution. SACA’s purpose will remain - to promote and develop the game of cricket in South Australia and, in doing so, to provide quality experiences for members.
At this stage, the effective date of the transfer to the new constitution and legal structure is expected to take place on 1 July 2018. For further details in relation to the transition process, refer to page 7 of the Voting Brochure.
