2017 membership and voting rights



  • Received info on next years membership as we have auto rollover and there was mention of voting rights for members next season .
    Do not know what this means exactly but interesting non the less!



  • I’d be surprised if it’s board members we are voting on… Would require a massive change to the whole set up of the club



  • probably member’s player of the year



  • Lol

    I haven’t received anything as yet Snake, did you receive the info today? does the info you received outline how many games are being played at each of our home grounds next year?

    I spoke to the membership department the week before last and was told the home ground allocation for next year will be exactly the same as it currently is

    Membership of Wests Tigers is like being a member of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program.
    Frequent fliers get lots of nice perks, but it is totally seperate to being a Shareholder of Qantas.
    The shareholders own Qantas and therefore have voting rights.

    Wests Tigers are a JV between Balmain and Wests.
    The only people who can vote are members of the board, being representatives of the owners.
    Wests Tigers are answerable only to its owners (Wests, Balmain, etc… see other thread about ownership structure)

    Balmain and Wests are clubs with members. The only vote you have is for the board of one these two entities.

    So what your saying is that being a Balmain club member your vote is almost worthless when it comes to the Wests Tigers……

    All Balmain Tigers members should make their way down to Wests Ashfield and sign up for a say

    Correct me if I’m wrong



  • Seriously considering signing up with Wests Ashfield.

    probably member’s player of the year

    Tedesco has already received that award.

    Maybe voting on members “member of the year”

    If you join as a member of Wests Ashfield, you could vote in their board elections but not have a direct say in Wests Tigers. The Wests Ashfield board would decide who they wanted on the Wests Tigers board, the members having no direct say.

    What you just stated is correct. As I understand it the Wests Tigers current ownership structure is 75% (Wests) and 25% (Balmain), all Balmain members should become Wests Ashfield members so they can elect a Wests board member to their choosing who will in turn select board members who they want on the Wests Tigers board. After all it is all about who has the numbers !!!

    You have to be a member for 3 years before you get voting rights at Wests Ashfield.

    That throws a spanner into the works if true….

    Oh well what’s 3 years in the scheme of things :slight_smile:
