UFBA Regulations 1 July 2011: Notice of Variations relating to Challenges

  Posted on 25th August 2016 by Loralee Hyde in UFBA News

Review of the Regulations

Introduced over 100 years ago, UFBA Challenges hold as much significance and importance today in the UFBA calendar as they did then. However, variances to the Regulations are needed to maintain relevance of Challenges, to reflect modern practice and be fit for purpose for the future.

At the 2015 UFBA Conference and AGM, Challenges Committee Chair Nigel Lilley assured delegates a full review of the UFBA Regulations relating to Challenges was being undertaken.

The Challenges Committee Chair has consulted on proposed variations to the Regulations with a wide range of stakeholders including UFBA Past Presidents, the current President and Vice President, the Technical Panel, the NZFS, the UFBA Events Team, the UFBA Chief Executive Officer and the UFBA Board.

The variations to the UFBA Regulations shown on pages 3-7 of this document (download here or below) along with the commentary below were endorsed by the UFBA Board, President and Vice President at the UFBA Board meeting on 1 August 2016 and commended to the membership for approval.
