Notice of Annual General Meeting
Western Australian Racing Trainers Association (Inc.)
Friday 27th September, 12 noon
Licensed trainers are advised that the AGM for the WA Racing Trainers Association (WARTA) is to be held on the last Friday in September and that nominations for four (4) positions on the committee for a two year term are now being received.
Retiring committee eligible for re-election are Stephen Rowe, Karen Kersley, Warwick Bradshaw & Ross Price. All office bearer positions declared vacant.
WARTA as one the five eligible bodies recognised under the RWWA Act (2003) has an active role via the Thoroughbred Racing Consultative Group (TRCG) in lobbying RWWA and government on behalf of Western Australian thoroughbred trainers, liaising with RWWA management and race clubs regarding programming, facilities, insurances and most factors impacting training in Western Australia.
As a direct result of negotiated funding from RWWA, membership of the association is guaranteed to all licenced thoroughbred trainers on an annual basis.
The association’s constitution also provides for full or associated committee members from regional training centres and most committee meetings are open to all trainers by request.
As part of the 2019/20 Annual General Meeting, members will be asked to consider amendments to the rules of the association to firstly account for the formalisation of the funding model as well as other variations to satisfy the requirements of the relevant government department overseeing incorporated bodies. A copy of the association’s rules are available to all members on request.
Trainers wishing to nominate for election to the committee are encouraged to do so via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12noon, Friday 20th September 2019.
