Individual Members (entitled to vote, as per Rule 15.2) are:
- Full Junior Affiliated Members
- Full Senior Affiliated Members
- Coach Affiliated Members
Associate Members (now entitled to vote, due to vote made at 2018 AGM, allowing all members of Fencing Victoria to vote for the coming year - 2019.)
- Club/School Affiliated Members
Note that a nomination for election for candidate must be made by two individual members (i.e. Fully Affiliated Members, not Associate Members). Candidates themselves may be an associate or individual member.
Proxy votes must comply with The Fencing Victoria Rules of Incorporation - Section 35
All members wishing to vote either in person or by Proxy (including members holding Proxies on behalf of other members) MUST be current members of Fencing Victoria for 2019.
All minors must have their Proxy votes signed by a parent/guardian. As a minor has no legal capacity, Junior members under the age of 18 may not exercise their voting rights, except through their legal guardian. Similarly, a proxy may only be provided by the legal guardian of a minor (i.e. the minor has no legal capacity to appoint a proxy). If a minor has completed a proxy form, this will only have effect if it has been also signed by their legal guardian.
4. Vote to continue the voting rights of Club/School Affiliated Members
5. Vote with reference to the continuation or cessation of Advisory Council meetings for 2019.
