+Team_vdlo Posted June 10, 2011 Share Posted June 10, 2011 Hi All, As you might already know, we have started with the planning to host a Geocaching MEGA event in South Africa and it looks very very promising. Yes, we can get 500 people together in on place! One of the very next thinks that we need to do is to create a legal entity to drive this project without putting any member at risk (legally or financially). I had discussions with various fellow Geocachers and they agree that we must create and legal entity that can be used to also promote Geocaching in South Africa and not just a body to facilitate the MEGA. After a lot of research and consultation I’ve prepared a draft Constitution that outlay the proposed structure and objectives of the association. Note that you can still enjoy the game and attend all listed GC events without being a member of GoSA or one of its branches but it will just be more fun to be part of this big happy GoSA family. Please can you review and discuss the Constitution with as many fellow South African (and ex pats) Geocaches and provide us with feedback by no later than 17 June 2011 that you are in agreement with it. Please can I especialy ask all the Legal cachers to ensure that the attached Constitution is legaly sound. Remember...a Constitution is not for life and can be changed yearly during the AGM. If you have any question or queries you are welcome to contact myself on email@example.com. The current plan is to setup a meeting around 21 June 2011 to discuss and resolve any issues and hopefully finalise the Constitution to create the legal entity for GoSA (if we do not get any show stopper feedback in the next few days).
