The purpose of the Special General Meeting is to approve a Special Resolution for NTCA Inc applying to become registered as a public company limited by guarantee under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) with the name ‘Northern Territory Cricket Limited’ and the adoption of a new Constitution.
An earlier form of the Special Resolution was considered and voted upon at an NTCA Inc SGM held on Friday 24 July 2020 (July 2020 SGM). That special resolution was not carried by the required margin of at least 75% of members voting on the special resolution.
Since the July 2020 SGM, NTCA Inc has undertaken further consultation with Members, inclusive of a forum in Darwin with DDCC clubs and a discussion in Alice Springs with clubs at the ASCA AGM. Following these meetings a number of changes were made to the proposed membership model and a redrafted Constitution was prepared to submit to the members at the November 2020 AGM of NTCA Inc.
The Board of NTCA Inc withdrew the notice of special resolution proposed on the AGM agenda at the request of a group of Darwin based members to enable further consideration of their concerns.
Having met with representatives of this group of members following the 2020 AGM, the Board has enacted on the feedback provided and removed the name Cricket North Australia and reinstated the name Northern Territory Cricket in the Constitution.
In relation to other requests from the members the Board has resolved that it has an obligation to present members with good governance reforms for corporate entities that are found across national and state and territory peak sporting bodies. The Board recommends members adopt these practices as are set out in the proposed Constitution.
