    Why become a long term member when on game day they dont even give you discount on drinks i prefer to go straight to the game and purchase drinks and receive a discount with my red v membership .The leagues club dont support the football club like they did years ago so why should we support the them thats why there is the red v membership team all funds go to the team. The leagues is only good for parking on game day .

    If all the dragons supporters who want to see major changes at st george illawarra football club actually joined the leagues club and obtained voting rights they could make significant changes to the hierarchy IE Peter Doust
    he is on the board of the leagues club as director of the football club and it would not be that hard to vote him out given the amount of people who don't want him . Pay your club membership and actually do some good for the dragons instead of all the flags to oust Doust and the whining,$65 dollar fee from a couple of thousand concerned fans and he's gone

    If you become a Leagues Club voting member you have the opportunity to make a difference should there ever be movement against the Club board at this very important local level.

    Maybe someone needs to walk up to doust with a sharks jersey so he can repeat what the ceo for sharks did years ago at the Chinese restaurant at sharks leagues when he cut the jersey of dragon supporter . That would be 1 way for him to be removed from the board at the club.

    Bump


    Despite being a long road, this to me is more relevant now than it ever has been. We need to attack this problem from every direction.

    Getting more voting members legal will not be a short fix, but will ensure more equality in the long run. The problem needs to be attacked from both a football and leagues club angle

    Do we know of the rules and regs remain the same?

    If we could get 10,000 to join the St George Leagues Club instead of trying to get 10,000 people to cough up $1075 ... that would be a good idea.

    Any St George Leagues Club member can ask for a copy of the Constitution and details of the AGM. Last year I sent an email to Michael Derrig at [email protected]

    In that email I asked the following:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hello,


    I have been advised that there will be an AGM on Sunday March 29th at St George Leagues Club. I am hoping to attend but require some clarification.


    Please confirm the following:

    • The above date is correct.
    • Time when the meeting will be held.
    • That attendance and voting is permissible for all current full members.
    • Please provide the Agenda and expected motions scheduled for the meeting.
    Many thanks in advance.


    For further queries, please do not hesitate to make contact.

    Kind regards,
    XXXX
    St George Leagues Club Member No. XXXX
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    I received the following reply with a copy of the Constition and the following advice on the AGM:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Thank you for your enquiry.


    The AGM will be held this Sunday at 10.00 am.


    It is open to all full members of 3 or more years continuous membership. (see attached section of the constitution)

    There have been no notices of motion received.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now I stress that this was in 2015 so an update is in order. I suspect the next AGM will be around the same time, ie March 2017. For those that have voting rights, you will be allowed to attend the AGM at the Club. Obviously any notices of motion need to be sent in advance, so it might be an idea to talk about it now rather than later.
