Under clause 13.2(a) of SACA’s Constitution, the SACA Board may from time to time make, amend and repeal such By-laws and Regulations as it thinks fit for the purposes of SACA.

The current SACA By-Laws were adopted by the Board in 2018 and amended in June 2019. On 21 October 2019 the SACA Board made several amendments to the SACA By-Laws to further resolve some practical implementation issues.

A summary of the amendments made to the By-Laws is set out below:

By-Law Amendment 
Part A – by-law 1.11 This amendment allows the Board to exempt a person from payment of the Entrance Fee, which may occur in limited circumstances at the absolute discretion of the Board.
Part A – by-law 1.13 This amendment allows the Board to transfer the Membership of a deceased Member to any person, which may occur in limited circumstances at the absolute discretion of the Board.
Part A – by-law 1.14(b) This amendment allows the Board to prescribe the information to be provided by persons seeking priority Membership on the basis of holding membership with a reciprocal organisation. Currently, the By-Laws do not contain a right for the Board to request information from such persons on application for Membership. 
Part A – by-law 2.4  This amendment allows children aged 9 and under free access to Adelaide Oval when accompanied by a Member, unless the Board otherwise determines. As currently drafted, the Board has to make a decision every season, or one that stands for multiple seasons, to allow free access for children. It would be preferable for this to be an entrenched right unless the Board determines to change it, which it can do via a Board resolution. 
Part A – by-law 2.6(h) This amendment allows the Board to place a Member’s Membership on hold when receiving complimentary Transferable Associate Cards. While on hold, the Member’s rights, benefits and privileges will be suspended, but it allows the person’s Membership to be easily re-instated when they no longer have access to the complimentary cards. There is currently no provision in the By-Laws allowing Memberships to be placed on hold.
