ASA Incorporation Document
The purpose of this paper is to provide some basic information on the incorporation of the Amatuer Swimming Association (ASA).
Discussions have taken place regarding the incorporation of the ASA on several occasions and at last year’s Annual Council Meeting (ACM) the matter was discussed in detail.
A number of Regional meetings followed early this year and widespread support for incorporation was received.
A meeting in April where all Regions were represented gave unanimous support and formal proposals are to be put to the ACM this October.
Advice has been taken from the auditors and law firms and as well as the Regions, both the Sport Governing Board and the Group Board support the move to incorporation and the structure set out below.
The ASA prides itself on operating within an effective governance framework and as part of this it is pertinent to review the governance structure from time to time. The matter of incorporation is therefore back on the table for debate and consideration as the world in which we operate in is an ever changing one which is becoming more business orientated and partnership based. The world is also more litigious than in the past and it may well become more difficult to ensure that risks are fully insured.
