A big welcome back to have Heather to our Trainers meeting tonight. Reminder of our upcoming Life Member awards to be held at last meeting, if anyone has somebody to be listed as a nomination for such, please let the Executive know by next meeting, no later. Thank you. New Trainers Jackets have arrived, those that need one or more please give me a call on 0409748022, or be present at our next meeting night, we will not be posting these Jackets out. Spoke on Uniform Policy and the League stance on this, as well as it is now in League Policy that each Club must have one Trainer as a member of this Association. This was moved at recent B of M meeting. Please think about our last meeting for the season, I`m looking at a venue for our dinner. Next meeting I will have 2 or 3 venues to chose from, we will vote on the night so it will be up to you to vote to decide the one that may suit you, remember the majority of votes will decide what venue we will go with. Moved: C. Smith. 2nd: C. Stone.

League Report: League thanked the Trainers & Association on another great effort displayed at recent Junior Carnival. Moved: G. Bovell. 2nd: J. Peacock.
General Business: G. Trease Moved Motion to have Club logo/ensign on Trainers uniform 2nd: K. Colla. carried unanimously by members. G. Bovell to write letter to League for item to be ratified, will read/present letter to members at next meeting prior to sending to Board of Management to ratify.
G. Trease, mentioned if Trainers could approach umpires and the answer is NO, Only the Captain can approach an Umpire, the only time a Trainer has a say is to alert the Umpire to stop play if a player is needing a stretcher or Medical Situation that warrants urgent attention for play to stop quickly.
G. Best, mentioned he was working on a K-Tape Night next year, GIPPSPORT to be involved plus professionals to instruct with this in mind, we will be using a large hall or the like, we will have flyers made up for this event.
D. Paterson, mentioned that there are 2 Clubs that have no members with this Association, this may be a problem seeing that League has Policy in place that states at least 1 member to be.
K. Colla, mentioned what is the requirement to become a Trainer because there is some confusion out there for some people, this was explained with an in-depth group discussion on this subject.
G. Bovell, reassured members that whatever happens down the road, he is committed to the A.F.N.L.T.A.
G. Bovell, highlighted that when members are putting apologies down for someone please ask them if they are indeed members because there has been past names put down only to be found out to be non-members. This is most embarrassing because we are mailing out newsletters to non members which is unfair to us paying members, we already send every Club a monthly newsletter as a courtesy.
Meeting Closed: 8.50 pm. We retreated for a cuppa biscuits/cake and catching up on the many things that revolve around our League.
NEXT MEETING TO BE HELD AT FISH CREEK ON THE 14th August 7.30 pm, we will be running a stretcher night and other items such as signals etc., especially seeing the finals are not far away.
