2020 EA AGM – Message from the EADC

Because we had the mindset for change, we came together just six months ago, with the will to create unity in our membership  - ‘we are all EA’.

Equal status across Australia…equal respect, that was the message we delivered, the bottom line:

“Let’s do things better”

Some of our members still don’t have that equal status through their Branch. Our Equestrian Northern Territory Members have the same commitment to their horses and the same welfare and training goals, personal bests and fellowship in competition.

During our EA AGM, we’re being asked to vote on a Special Business Notice of Motion aimed at amending Rules 4.1 and 5.2 of our Constitution, to give Equestrian Northern Territory equal voting status to that held by the other States.

The Voluntary Administration gave all of us our individual right to vote on Constitutional matters - and likewise, our six State Branches retain a vote each.

This amendment is designed to ‘plug the gap’.

In the decades since we became a National Federation, the Northern Territory has never had its own vote - now we have the chance to change that – and not before time!

Our challenge as Members is to vote as one, in favour of the amendment and to show our support and respect to our Territory friends.

We need a unity ticket on this – 2021 will be a time of recovery and renewal in our sport, we need goodwill to recoup and good leadership; on the 18th January, let’s fix this.

“Let’s do things better”

On behalf of the EADC,

Prue Spurrett, Chair

Des Hughes, Chair EA Eventing Committee
