Nominations for the election of Directors were opened on 25 August 2023 for two Northern Zone and two Southern Zone positions. On 8 September 2023, WRL completed the call for nominations for the election of Directors for 2023. The Rules of Association for WRL require an election every year, with half of the positions on the Board being declared vacant.
There were only two nominations for the two vacant positions in the Southern Zone. Therefore Stephen Minutillo and Mat Thompson have been re-elected as Directors.
There were three nominations for the two vacant positions in the Northern Zone. The candidates in order of nominations received are Greg Cole, Justin Pirrottina and Jared Groom.
An election is required for Northern Zone and the ballot paper/s have been sent by mail to Northern Zone MFL holders. This was completed on 14 September 2023. The closing time/date for the election will be 4.00 p.m. Wednesday, 11 October 2023. The declaration of the new Directors will be made at the 2023 AGM and will also be posted on the WRL website as soon as possible after the conclusion of the AGM.
It is essential you RSVP by Friday 6th October 2023 to make the registration process as efficient as possible, and to ensure there is enough food and drinks for everyone.
