Amalgamation Update letter No 1


15th September 2016


At last nightís historical meeting the South Western District Ladies Golf Association and the Geelong District Golf Association agreed to amalgamate to form the South Western Golf Association Inc. The proposed constitution was accepted for the new Association, consequently the Interim Board will manage the affairs of the Association until the first AGM which is expected to be later in the year. All golf programs will continue throughout the year as normal, as will both websites until a new combined one is set up. The Interim Board is in the process of formalising the amalgamation with Consumer Affairs and Golf Victoria. This will take a few weeks, you will be advised when this is completed.
