2014-15 CNSW Annual Report
The 2014-15 CNSW Annual Report is now available from the Governance page (plus others from recent years). By now clubs should have received their printed copy, however one page is missing due to a printer's error. This page can be obtained by printing page 11 (PDF page 13) of the report on the Governance page, trimming it to A5 and inserting it between pages 10 and 11 of the printed version.

New Constitution now in Effect
CNSW was advised by FairTrading NSW earlier this week that the new constitution was registered on 7 September and is in effect. This means that the old constitution is no longer in force. The by-laws, standing orders, policies etc that form the remainder of the old handbook have mostly been replaced by CNSW Policy Documents however there may be some areas that have not been addressed yet. If something is not covered by a Policy Document then the relevant section of the old handbook remains temporarily in force.
