Update to ESA Members on AGM Voting Process

Equestrian SA would like to update the members on the process for election of new members to its board.

Equestrian SA is conducting the election process pursuant to the Constitution.

Pursuant to clause 16 (e) of the ESA Constitution the Executive Officer, requested the Board of ESA appoint a ‘nominee’ to act as an independent returning officer.  This was duly adopted.

The independent returning officer will oversee the election process as set by the Board of ESA.  Their role includes receiving the unopened ballot papers from Sport SA, which only the independent returning officer will have access to. The independent returning officer has also appointed an independent scrutineer to oversee the work undertaken by him.  The appointed scrutineer is Ms Kay Mousley, Ms Mousley was the Electoral Commission of SA.  ESA consented to this appointment.

We have taken this step to seek to ensure that no one other than the independent returning officer will have access to the ballot papers, and to ensure complete independence of the voting process.

Sharon Cimarosti

Executive Officer
