HORSHAM Cricket Association wants to update its constitution ahead of the 2012-13 season.
Association president Michael McGough said a special general meeting to pass a resolution to confirm into law the the proposed constitution was scheduled for August 1.
Two delegates from each club are expected to attend.
A draft copy of the updated constitution has been circulated to clubs and the board is awaiting feedback.
Mr McGough said there were a number of reasons the board felt the constitution needed to be updated, including to address the current constitution being a mixture of constitution, policies, by-laws and playing rules, to address the many administrative issues created by the current mix of delegate versus board based systems, to enable the effective use of MyCricket and electronic banking, and to determine how the association and the board is run and with what authorities.
Mr McGough said the proposed constitution did not include the association by-laws and playing rules.
Rather, these are to be managed separately by the elected board of management rather than as any part of the constitution.
“It will make it easier to do things because at the moment if we want to changes things we have to wait until an AGM or special meeting,” Mr McGough said. “It means we can do things at anytime of the year rather than waiting for one day.”
Mr McGough said the association hadn’t identified any by-laws or rules which needed to be updated at this stage.
The special general meeting is on Wednesday, August 1 at Grains Innovation Park, Horsham, at 7.30pm.
