Given pending changes to the Incorporated Societies Act and other legislative and regulatory changes (like Health and Safety reforms), NZTR has developed a template set of Club Rules (Constitution) for race clubs to adapt/adopt to ensure compliance with these legislative changes/requirements.
The Wanganui Jockey Club has diligently reviewed the rules and requirements and has finalised a set of Rules for the club going forward which were adopted at the 2017 AGM.
The new Rules of the Wanganui Jockey Club ratified on 28 August 2017 for the 2017 AGM:
