Frequently Asked Questions
Do Clubs have 3 votes at a Special Conference, the same as a National Conference?
Yes, Clubs have 3 votes but only 1 voting delegate - see section P8.3 of the BPWA Procedure Manual:
For a Special Conference
What happens to our accommodation bookings if the National Conference is deferred?
West Beach Parks Resort has reviewed their terms and conditions which have different rules depending upon the type of booking. Some members have booked a cabin and paid a deposit and others have jumped on one of the special deals which require the full amount to be paid, so the outcomes are different. The terms and conditions relate to cancellations rather than changing a booking, so they have provided the following advice.
The October 2021 bookings will not open until August this year but, if the resolution is passed on 30 April and the National Conference is deferred, members who have bookings can advise West Beach Parks Resort in May of their intention to defer their booking and can confirm their booking later this year.
