Pony Club WA announce that the amendments to the Constitution, accepted by Member Clubs at the recent AGM, are now effective as of 7th May 2019.
Although our constitution was compliant with requirements of the Associations Incorporation Act 2015 (WA), the amendments provide Pony Club WA with a clear and consistent constitution reflecting best practice.
Pony Club Western Australia promotes the following codes of conduct to all people involved in any way with the sport of pony club. These codes of conduct highlight the principles and values of Pony Club WA and our related policies.
Member Protection Information Officer
A Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO) is responsible for providing information about a person’s rights, responsibilities and options to an individual making a complaint or raising a concern in regards to matters of harassment or discrimination. They can also provide information and advice to sport administrators and complaint handlers with regard to the Member Protection Policy of that sport. MPIOs are generally impartial; they do not mediate or investigate complaints.
The MPIO can play a key role in ensuring sport is safe, fair and inclusive. MPIOs do this through ensuring club people and administrators know their rights and responsibilities and ensuring policies that focus on member protection are being implemented. Such policies may include but are not limited to the complaints policy and procedures, child protection policies, harassment and discrimination policies.
Discussions with MPIO are CONFIDENTIAL (exception: State and Federal Legislation).
Pony Club WA currently have two registered MPIO’s.
