From Inside the Bunker at AKAQ headquarters !
In this interview,
one of the AKAQ idiots (as they
were described by one of the obviously more clever Townsville identities) tells us how
Queensland can still pursue better management practice without a skills based board of
directors that the clever Townsville identities voted down in order to keep the sports
stakeholders, the karters, from having the voting rights in general meeting.
Thanks for coming in, can you tell us
whats going on
are saving the nation of course
KNN Pardon ?
IDIOT Haydens 150
and Symonds 140
going on at AKAQ headquarters ?
IDIOT I thought
youd have figured that out yourself, were watching the cricket
KNN No, after the
IDIOT Someone said
were going to golf
going on in karting ?
IDIOT Nothing. The crickets on. Youre not the brightest bulb on the chrissy
tree, are you ?
you start, they said you were an idiot, not me
IDIOT Well just ask me
what it is you want. This isnt the NKC
been told you plan to try new things at Council meetings
KNN And ?
IDIOT And what ?
KNN What new
things are planned for Council meetings ?
IDIOT You gotta stop
beating around the bush son. Not everyone gets flogged like ARC First
up, we changed the constitution so we only have to have
meetings once every 4 months. So
as its only 3 times a year, thats the meeting held straight after the AGM and
2 more. AGM is early
lets say February and June.We move the AGM around the State, so
well suggest these other 2 meetings move around too. And well
someone from the club attends like we have at the AGM.
KNN That sounds good
IDIOT Not bad for a
bunch of idiots eh !
KNN I doubt
thats why youre idiots
IDIOT Yeah, well seeing as the
clubs want to control things, we now just get them to do the governance
KNN Like the NKC
IDIOT No, I said
do the governance. Governance is
not on the agenda at the NKC
KNN So, how do
you get the clubs to do it ?
IDIOT You give them the
bases for strategic planning. They discuss
what they want to plan. They go away and work out how to do it and how to monitor it.
They meet again and tweak it then formalise it then put it into practice.
IDIOT Not at all. Thats what governance is all about
KNN The clubs
havent done anything like that ever.
IDIOT I know and
thats why the governance move started in 2003.
KNN Why not just
elect a skilled board of directors ?
IDIOT How would I know, were
