President's Message

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

I thank and appreciate the support of our many and long-standing Head Instructors for the steady flow of membership renewals.  We have recently confirmed that both the Instructor and participant registrations are very much in line with and, possibly, even a little ahead of last year.  TA maintains our strong membership renewals and continues to represent the vast majority of Taekwondo participants throughout the country.

TA’s membership structure now has voting membership vested in our State Associations and the Board is keen to support premier governance for these associations as our members.  In this, TA has asked each of the States to consider their constitutions and ensure that their structures are consistent with the National organistion.  In providing assistance to the state associations for their review of governance structures TA will assist in review and redevelopment of constitutions with each of the state bodies.  Our legal team have been preparing templates for the review and this will all be forwarded to State executives shortly for their consideration.  State members will be able to choose various structural options and TA will be assisting with drafting of documents to ensure costs of the process are minimised for the States.

The Board and I are also thrilled to announce the coming relationship with NIB Health Cover.  Once the promotion is released in a few weeks time our participants and their families will have access to an excellent discount package with a strong and stable provider of health insurance that will work to support the insurances already in place through TA membership.

The Board has finally been able to confirm the date and location for Nationals 2010!

There was much effort put in by many trying to bring Nationals to Victoria but venue limitations have, unfortunately, beaten us again in this regard for 2010 so the search went out for an alternative (with an acknowledgement of the efforts of Taekwondo Victoria in this).  TA’s Board is pleased to now announce that the Nationals for 2010 will be held in . . . . . . . . .

CANBERRA – 22-24 October – Australian Institute of Sport, Belconnen

TA continues to try to bring Nationals back to Melbourne and will assist in working with venue providers to make this possible.

Sport Registrations

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

Sport registrations have been increasing and will result positive progression of programs in the future as well as better information for TA about participation trends and needs.  The photos on the cards have been well received by our athletes but have caused some small delays in processing where instructors have not included the photos with the registration forms.

Would all Instructors please make sure that all SPORTS registrations are accompanied by a passport size photo which is stuck to the top right hand corner of the page.  If you have photos outstanding, please endeavour to get them to Administration as soon as possible.

ACT Open Competition

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

Taekwondo Australia wants to clarify for members that the advertised ACT Open is an event that is being run outside the scope of Taekwondo Australia.  As such, this event is NOT sanctioned by Taekwondo Australia and will not be covered by insurances provided under the membership of Taekwondo Australia in regard to athlete, coach or referee participation
