At the 2023 AGM a motion was passed to adopt a new Club Constitution, based on the model constitution of the Department of Fair Trading and modified to suit the needs of our Club and to bring us in line with the Associations Incorporation Act 2009 (NSW). This process was led by the 2023 Executive and supported by Tim Borham of Sajen Legal (sponsor and legal advisor for the Club).
The motion to adopt the new constitution was accepted with the amendments that:
- it will come into effect 30 days from the date of the AGM (27/11/23) in order to give members time to clarify any items or provide further feedback;
- specific reference be made to Lane Cove Council in addition to Willoughby Council in clause 13(d); and
- the Club Colour Scheme be embedded as a new clause 47:
The Club colours are, subject to requirements of authorities to which the Club is bound to comply:
- Royal Blue – Colour Hex #4169e1 aka RGB 65, 105, 225; and
- White – Colour Hex #FFFFFF aka RGB 255, 255, 255.
All questions and comments must be put in writing and addressed to the Executive Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. At the end of the 30-day period the Executive will review all feedback and determine whether any feedback would warrant the calling of an EGM.
The reasons presented at the AGM for the need for an updated Constitution included:
- the existing Constitution is out-of-date and may not meet all requirements under the Associations Incorporation Act 2009 (NSW) (the “Act”);
- the hierarchy of the Executive Committee and its subcommittees is unclear;
- some rules about the operation of the Association are either unclear, conflicting, do not comply with the requirements of the Act or are missing entirely.
The new Constitution will also make management of the Club easier by allowing sub-committee roles to be adapted throughout the year rather than waiting for approval at an AGM (not the Executive roles) and allow for updates to be proposed and voted on outside an AGM where necessary.
The overall purpose of this process is to ensure the effective running of Chatswood Rangers Sports Club, to ensure the Committee is supported and able to carry out their duties, and that all members are well served.
The 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Chatswood Rangers Sports Club will be held on Monday 27th November 2023 at 7:30pm at Longueville Sporting Club (The Diddy), cnr Kenneth Street and River Road Longueville.
- If you wish to nominate for a committee position, please complete the Committee Nomination Form and return it to the Club Secretary (email@example.com) no later than 5:00pm Monday 20th November 2023.
- If you would like to add an item to the agenda, please forward your request to the Club Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) by no later than 5:00pm Monday 20th November 2023.
2023 was the Club’s 60th year. Chatswood Rangers Sports Club continues to grow from strength to strength and is looking to continue this trend by ensuring our Committee is well supported in their efforts. The AGM is a very important event for the Club and is an opportunity for you to have your say in the running of YOUR club.
If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.
I look forward to seeing some new faces at the AGM.

The Community Program supports the core objective of our Club as set in our constitution:
To contribute to the development of children and adults in the Willoughby City Council and surrounding municipalities by providing the opportunity for them to participate in sporting activities”.
We are excited about this endeavour and look forward to the positive impact it will have on our members and wider community.
Today, we are announcing two Community Program initiatives:
1. The Community Program has been set up to support current and future members who are in financial difficulty to play Rangers netball or Rangers football. Our Club believes that no one should be prevented from participating in sport due to financial reasons.
If you or someone you know requires support please reach out to email@example.com. We will then discuss your request and how we can best support you.
2. Save the Date – Rangers R U OK? Round – 24 & 25 July 2021
We are partnering with R U OK? to organise a Rangers R U OK? Round. The aim of the round is to support, inspire and empower our Rangers family (players, coaches, managers, referees and umpires) to meaningfully connect with those in their world, and lend support when they are struggling with life.
Watch this space for updates as the Rangers R U OK? Round plans come together.
We are looking for volunteer committee members. If you are interested in helping develop the Community Program please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue to provide updates on the Community Program as it develops. Please contact us if you have any questions or comments.
