Each body affiliated with Tennis Queensland for the year is entitled to elect or appoint Delegates to a Regional Assembly. The activities undertaken by Regional Assemblies will vary from region to region.The prime responsibility of every Regional Assembly is to coordinate everything that happens in the region in regards to Tennis (e.g. development programs, activities of the Community Tennis Officer and the dates for local tournament circuits).
The number of delegates your club is entitled to is determined annually by the Affiliated Body Percentage calculation which is explained in clause 8.4 of the Constitution. This calculation also determines the voting entitlement of each delegate. You will be provided with your allocation of delegates and their corresponding votes in the Tennis Queensland Affiliate Welcome Pack. If you are yet to receive this pack, please contact Tennis Queensland on 3120 7900.
Delegates must be registered persons, and must be appointed by 14 July for the purpose of Regional Assembly Annual General Meetings.
More information on your delegate rights and responsibilities can be found in the Regional Assembly Delegates Manual.
