The new AVCC treasurer, Cheryl Hutchins (Gold Coast) identified some cost pressures facing AVCC in the immediate future. Insurance is by far the national body’s greatest expenditure and our insurer has flagged a 2019 premium increase of about 10%. Alternative providers are being examined but price is not the only consideration.
In addition to insurance Cheryl has identified some anomalies in the way SportsTG (our provider of membership services) applies a 4.4% admin fee. This has resulted in the AVCC effectively subsidising some (mostly interstate) clubs. This arrangement will cease and will result in most SA members paying an additional one/two dollars. Therefore 2019 fees for SAMCA members will increase by roughly $22.
