Dear Members, 
 
I want to thank all the Members who attended last night’s Parramatta Leagues Club (PLC) meeting. It was pleasing to see that there was an increased turnout from Members for such an important occasion. I was especially pleased to hear that there was a large number of Members who made the effort to travel from Newcastle, Central Coast and the ACT to support the vote. 
 
As you may be aware, the first resolution fell just short of the required 75 per cent which would have seen all of the governance reforms proposed by the Administrator adopted in full and a new Leagues Club Board appointed on merit within three months.  
 
However the second resolution was passed, which proposed some of the key reforms including postal/electronic voting, triennial elections and the recognition of the Parramatta National Rugby League (PNRL) Club within the PLC constitution adopted. Importantly these initial reforms will provide opportunities to complete the full reform process and the Football Club stands ready to work with the PLC and the Independent Liquor Gaming Authority (ILGA) on what are the most appropriate next steps in the reform process. 
 
The most pleasing aspect of last night’s meeting is that the vast majority of Members want to see the full reforms proposed by the Administrator adopted and this provides a good platform from which to build on within the coming months. 
 
Thank you again for your support.
 
Yours Sincerely,
 
Sean McElduff 
Parramatta Eels Chairman

  • This looks like being a break through. I hope so I am over coming to the meetings.

    Electronic voting is far more effective than what is happening. With the electronic option maybe they can get all of the reforms through and put an end to this.

    who conducts the electronic voting? I assume not the club.

  • It also provides an opportunity to vote for someone who lives 800 km away. 

    • I take it they still need to meet certain criteria to even get a look in at being voted in. Attendance at board meetings would certainly be one of those criteria.

      • LE, I think you've misunderstood John's comment. He means it's easier for someone who lives 800km away to vote. Which is the entire idea of this. Plenty of Leagues Club members have moved away from the area but maintained their membership. 

  • Electronic voting means I’m becoming a member.

    Hold on to your hats in 3 years!

  • It just time now. The majority now at the next AGM can vote no matter where you are. Postal / Internet. Now the league's largest supporter base can Vote any way it wants without any fear from the old crunts.
