INFORMATION FOR NEW MEMBERS

 

STRUCTURE & OPERATION OF THE CLUB

 

STAFF

While the club employs a full-time Club Manager, several casual permanent bar staff, a part-time bookkeeper and a membership officer, the DDCC relies on volunteers to manage the affairs of the club and to maintain the infrastructure of the club.

THE CLUB

The club operates at 40 Gifford Rd. Dunsborough on approximately 55 hectares of Crown Land classified as ‘Recreation Reserve’. This land is controlled by the City of Busselton under a Management Order from the WA State Government and is leased by the club from the City. All land, non-removable structures and buildings remain the property of the City of Busselton and all buildings and structures are insured by them through the Local Government Insurance Scheme, for which the club pays the premiums.

  • The club is an incorporated not-for-profit association operating under the Associations Incorporation Act 2015.
  • Under the Rules of Association (latest review lodged 28 October 2021), the business of the club is managed by an elected Management Committee who may … ‘exercise all powers of The Club except those required to be exercised by The Club at a General Meeting’.
  • Rule 19. Election of Management Committee Office Bearers, specifies that the committee shall consist of a maximum of 10 members with at least one committee member representing each sporting section. If a sport is not represented by an elected committee member then a member of the committee will be appointed to represent and liaise with that sporting section. After each annual General Meeting the new committee then elects the President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary for the next 12 months.
  • The Management Committee has sole legal responsibility for the operation and financial management of the club and all sporting sections.

MEMBERS

All members, by joining the club, agree to abide by the Rules of Association and club By-Laws. Both are available for download from the footer on any page of this website. 

SPORTING SUB-COMMITTEES

At its discretion permit(s) members interested in particular sports for which The Club provides facilities to elect sub-committees to organise the conduct of such sports.  Such sport is to be conducted within the Rules of Association and By-Laws of the governing body of that particular sport except when aspects of that body’s Rules of Association and By-Laws are in conflict with the stated objectives of The Club, as stated in Rule 2(a), as decided by the Committee.

All sub-committees are required to report to and be responsible to the Management Committee.

 CODES OF CONDUCT

The club By-Laws contain appropriate Codes of Conduct for Members and the Management Committee and Guidelines for the operation of sub-committees, all members should make themselves familiar with their obligations under these codes and policies.
