Rugby union to hold AGM in Port Moresby


THE PNG Rugby Football Union will hold its annual general meeting on Saturday at the Gateway Hotel in Port Moresby.
The AGM will also coincide with a special general meeting.
The AGM will see all provincial unions elect a board.
PNGRFU is currently operating with an interim board headed by chairman Syd Yates, pictured, president Ben Frame, vice-president Robert Nilkare, treasurer Nathan Chang and secretary Michael Uari. The special general meeting will see the adoption of the draft constitution which was sent out to all provincial unions and stakeholders following the governance workshop in December.
Provincial union heads, who are scheduled to attend the meeting, are also advised to bring names of active individuals who they think are potential candidates for the educators course that from March 23 to April 1 which will be run by Oceania Rugby.
The educators course will up-skill coaches, match officials and strength conditioners.
Another important agenda that will be covered this weekend is the financial statements from 2015-2017 which were audited by accounting firm KPMG.
Meanwhile in other PNGRFU related news, the national union is looking for rugby development officers for Port Moresby and Kokopo and a rugby development manager based in Port Moresby.
The development officers will focus on the Southern and NGI region’s participation goals through collaboration with provincial and district administrations while the development manager will be engaged in managing the development of rugby across PNG in line with the targets set by the Rugby PNG Strategic Plan 2019-2022.
