    Sorry to do this again, but I have sent the following request to GBA email and I am still waiting for the documents:

    Dear GBA EXCO

    To ensure a speedy meeting it is important that members engage with documents beforehand, therefore please send the following documents as per the agenda:

    1. Minutes of the AGM 30 May 2010.

    2. Minutes of the GM 13 June 2010

    3. Organisational report, especially midterm strategy

    May I also add constitutional amendments to the agenda as I have a proposal for the GBA structure. Also, please send the constitution in this regard. I will submit my proposal as soon as I have studied the current constitution.


  2. Joseph Mangadi says:

    Just as I predicted, what a farce of a meeting:

    1. How can you convene a general meeting without providing obvious documents like minutes, constitution, reports, plans, motions?

    2. How can ‘members ‘ come to a general meeting without preparation ie. background research?

    3. How can you elect board members without a stipulated criteria and with no clear mandate?

    4. How can you re-elect board members without perfomance evaluation?

    5. How can you decide that district membership is the way forward but fail to discuss the definition of a district?

    Until ballers confront the fact that we are ignorant of sport governance and adminstration issues, we will continue to swim in the pool of mediocrity.

    Sorry to say “I told you so” and as they say “who laughs last…”, I wonder what is the status of GBA?

    Also BSA is only now acknowledging that without proper functioning Pronvincial, District and School structures there is no point in planning development programmes when the structures are not aligned properly to implement them.
