SOA BOARD VACANCY: Independent Director

We are seeking to appoint an Independent Director who will bring fresh and challenging thinking to our Board of Directors. SOA has not had such a position before, but requirements to demonstrate good governance and meet relevant standards in sport have increased and it is essential that we appoint an independent voice.

SOA Event levies 2017

It has been some years since SOA levies were increased and there was no proposal to change this at the SOA AGM on 21st May 2016. Subsequent to this on 29th October 2016 a motion to substantially increase the BOF levies was passed at a BOF EGM. In response to this and to ease the burden on clubs in the face of rising costs the SOA has decided to raise the SOA levy threshold from £8 to £10. (This does not require approval by the SOA AGM). There is no change to the SOA levy rate.

SOA subscriptions 2017

A change was proposed to increase membership rates at the AGM on 21st May 2016. The senior rate is now £8, and there are no charges for juniors or clubs.
