It’s that time of year again when we need to ask for new volunteers to help run our club

The Greenvale Basketball Club Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday the 15th August, 2012, at 7:00pm, at the Greenvale Recreation Centre.

Some of you may know that some of the current Committee have been in their positions for quite a number of years now and would like to take a break, not to mention it would be great to great some new ideas running through the Committee.
With that in mind we are calling on parents and senior members (U19 Players) of the club to nominate for a position on the new Committee at this year’s AGM.

If you are interested in joining our Committee or taking on a supporting role, please send a small letter via email to me at Paul Byron ( before AUG 5th 2012 stating the position you may be interested in.

There are 4 major and 3 general committee positions with all responsibilities spread around all 7 members. However, because of the size of our club (44 teams) we require more volunteers to take on supporting roles. I have listed below the official committee positions available for nomination and their roles/responsibilities as well as the other supporting roles we desperately need more assistance with;

President: Oversee club management and administration, hold the public officer position, ensure all requirements of the articles of association are adhered to, and chair club meetings. Club contact, attend Association Meetings.

3 x Club Registrars (These positions can be taken by non-Committee Members): Maintain current team / player listings, maintain club membership register, co-ordinate the formation of teams each season, organize the registration of teams with BBA, collect player registration cards from team managers and forward to BBA.

Supporting Roles

Remember you don’t have to be a Committee member to be involved but we do need a minimum of 7 Committee members in order for the club to continue. Again I urge you to seriously consider a position and reply before Aug 5th. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

The future of our club relies on your involvement.
