Metro West & Metro South Proposed Amalgamation Update
The proposed amalgamation with Metro South is currently at the stage where both Leagues are completing their League's Due Diligence reports. These reports should be completed by Monday 04th June 2012. (Completed) A Memorandum of Understanding will be prepared and signed by both Leagues, detailing how we expect the process to continue and who has which responsibilities etc. The Memorandum of Understanding will by signed by 04th July 2012. A presentation of the due diligence outcome, with recommendations, will be presented to the Metro West Clubs by 04th July 2012. The Clubs will take the recomendations back to their Clubs for a vote. Metro West Clubs will present their vote on the recommendations at 15th July 2012 meeting. This will be a recommendation put to the members Clubs to pursue or not pursue the amalgamation based on the results of the Due Diligence report. If the vote is YES: Items like new name, new logo, new Constitution, new rules etc. will need to addressed. The two Leagues will continue to operate as they are while this is being done. It is hoped that everything will be completed for the NEW League by 30th September 2012. A special meeting will then be called by both Leagues and a special resolution passed to amalgamate the two Leagues to form a new Association. The Special meeting will be called for by 31st October 2012 with the intention to have the new League operational soon after (should the resolution be passed). If the vote is NO: The two Leagues will continue to operate as they currently are. There will be a major overhaul of MWJFL Rules, Constitution & Fees.
