Touch Footy PNG holds successful AGM

Touch Football Papua New Guinea successfully held its Annual General Meeting for this year, where all affiliated association representatives attended.

There are six affiliated associations, namely Corporate Touch Lae, Huon Touch, Wewak Touch, Bugs New Ireland Touch, Owen Touch and Corporate Touch Port Moresby.

The meeting was held on Saturday, December 17, in Port Moresby, attended by the new executives and technical directors.

TFPNG president Dadi Toka Jr told Loop PNG there are some minor changes to the executive team, with the appointment of Helena Dickson as the new financial director.

Toka said her financial background brings a solid financial management system in place to encourage good governance.

Outgoing financial director Steven Ilam tendered his resignation due to other commitments.

It was revealed during the AGM that no efforts have been made by previous executives to report on the financial matters from 2015.

Toka said TFPNG will now take legal steps, as per constitution, to have the 2015 Finance Report presented by previous executives.

The President’s Report 2016 was presented and accepted and the Financial Report 2016 was presented and will be audited.

New associations who would like to affiliate in 2017 will be required to pay K2500, which includes K1500 nomination fee and K1000 annual affiliation fee.

2016 associations will only pay K1000 annual affiliation fee for 2017.

All new associations wanting to affiliate will need to fulfill constitutional requirements before any approvals.

TFPNG constitution will be amended and presented at Special General Meeting in June 2017.
