This years’ National Council Election is a process held every 2 years in which eligible members will define 10 people who will become candidates for election as Directors of the Company and members of the National Council.

Voting rights extend to all Ordinary Members of DSA – that is, those who are 16 years of age or over and who have paid the full membership fee, and who are not “provisional” members. Ballot papers, Profiles of Candidates and information regarding the voting procedures have been included with the 37th edition of the “Focus” newsletter for those members eligible to vote.

Under the terms of our current constitution, only State Branch Board members - past and present - are eligible to nominate for election via this process. The reason for this is that people who have been elected by the members to serve on a State Branch are able to gain the necessary administrative experience to have a valuable input at the National level.

The election will define 10 Councillors elected from the following categories:-

  •     2 Coach Representatives – elected by the accredited coaches.

 Note: Voting in the above category will not be required in 2017; In this section, there were just two nominees to fill each of the two positions; those nominees thus become candidates for election as directors of the company and members of national council.

  •      2 Competitor Representatives – elected by the eligible registered competitors
  •       6 General Member Representatives – elected by the Ordinary Members.

The “function based” ideal has been a part of the framework of DSA’s National Council since its inception so as to ensure that Coaches and Competitors are represented at this level.

Formal voting instructions and ballot papers have recently been despatched by post to eligible voting members (on 11th August, 2017).Voting members are asked to read the candidate’s profiles and the information sheet before completing the ballot paper. Once completed, only the ballot paper should be forwarded to the Returning Officer in the return envelope provided with this mail out. Votes can only be lodged by post. Should you misplace the return envelope, the address for lodgement of votes is Post Office Box 123, Eastwood, NSW, 2122.

DSA’s external auditor is the independent Returning Officer. He will be solely responsible for the receipt and counting of votes and the declaration of the result.

VOTING CLOSES at 6pm on Friday, 8th September, 2017 – that’s not far away…and remember to allow time for the mail to be received by the due date. To vote is to exercise your democratic right, we encourage you to participate.

To assist with the voting process, we have attached the voting instructions and candidate profiles below (just click on the highlight). Should any DSA member who believe they are eligible to and who wishes to cast a vote but who may not have received their instructions / ballot papers in the mail should contact DSA's Chief Executive Office by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
