Changes to the Constitution are made via remits that are voted on at the Annual General Meeting,
Regulation changes are made by the Board according to a Regulation change protocol. This process includes a 50 day Regulation change notification, and such notifications are notified to clubs and posted on the Athletics New Zealand website.
Protocol for Enacting Athletics New Zealand Regulation Changes
Athletics NZ revised its Constitution some years ago now. We have undertaken a project to revise and update the Regulations to better align with the Constitution as well as respond to changing legal and sport requirements such as anti-match fixing and sports betting. As a consequence we have now completely revised the Regulations for the consideration of our Membership.
The Athletics NZ Constitution requires that Members are provided a period of 50 days consultation on any proposed changes to the Regulations. We therefore invite Members to consider the set of Consultation Draft Regulations that can be found below.
We welcome feedback and comment on these draft Regulations by no later than 5pm on Wednesday 4 July, 2018. We will consider the feedback and the Athletics NZ Board will formally agree the final Regulations which will take effect.
Proposed new Regulations
- Administration Regulation
- Competition Regulation (replacement document uploaded 1 June 2018 to replace faulty document)
