Governance Principle – Board Composition and Operation
There is strong evidence that diversity on Boards leads to better corporate performance. The position of the SA Office of Recreation and Sport is that each State Sporting Organisation should seek to achieve a target of a minimum of 40% representation of each gender. This target will be pursued and encouraged.
Persons elected at the AGM as Directors will be elected for 2 years, except that 3 of the 5 elected Directors must retire at the following AGM and may be eligible for re-election.
The Constitution (at 11.4) provides:
(d) At least half of the Elected Directors must retire every year. If the number of Elected Directors whose term ends in any one year (Retiring Directors) is less than one half of the number of Elected Directors, then an additional number of the Elected Directors who are not due to retire (Non-Retiring Directors) must retire to make up one half.
(e) If the Non-Retiring Directors cannot agree on which of the Non-Retiring Directors will retire, it will be determined by ballot.
