  12. Remits
    From the NZSSRA Board
    1. that Article 25 "transitional provisions" be deleted from the Constitution.
      Explanation: we are now incorporated and no longer require this clause.
    2. that references to "Schools Committee" in Article 15 sub-clauses 9 and 10 be changed to "Board".
      Explanation: this should have happened when the old constitution was updated because finances are the Board's responsibility. Unfortunately they got overlooked in the more general changeover of instances of Executive Committee to Schools Committee.
    From the Schools Committee
    1. Change the type of financial statements the Board causes to be prepared i.e. so they are no longer "an audited set" but are "a set".
      Explanation: The requirement to "audit" accounts is not considered necessary by the companies office where the accounts are held and it is onerous and expensive. It is also one the Board has not achieved and nor did the Executive Committee manage to achieve it for many years before that.
    2. This final remit is declared by the Schools Committee as an emergency rule change (Article 14.6)
      That Rule 4.4 be amended to include the shoe quick release system to that of the NZRA rules. "...all boats must be equipped with stretchers or shoes which allow the rowers to get clear of the boat with the least possible delay and where laces, velcro or similar materials must be open before the athlete may remove their feet from the shoes or other device, these must be able to be released immediately by the athlete with a single quick hand action of pulling on one easily accessible strap."

      Explanation: Quick-release systems are considered safer than (or at least as safe as) systems where you can get out without any use of the hands. Consequently, schools should be allowed to use such systems as soon as possible and without having to wait until the next Rule-change AGM.
