Affiliation: Model Review

Affiliation Model Review

Affiliation Fees, together with grants and sponsorships, underpin the financial operations of Bowls SA, and impact how and what we can provide to members, Clubs, Associations and the sport. At the 2021 AGM, Bowls SA Board stated it was committed to reviewing the current Affiliation Model, which was introduced in 2017/18 and we are now in the process of reviewing the model, and we are seeking clubs thoughts and feedback.

We are committed to being transparent in this process and we value your feedback on the models proposed so that we can ensure all views are considered when working up the final model.
