A Message to Members from the President and Committee.
As this year’s Annual General Meeting quickly approaches I urge all members to attend, as there are many important decisions to be made.
The most important is the proposed name change from Nerang and Districts Equestrian Club (NADEC) to Equestrian Gold Coast.
At the last committee meeting all members were unanimous in their support of this change. This decision however must be voted on at the AGM with a majority of NADEC members supporting this change.
Whilst NADEC has a long and rich history, the name no longer reflects the wide-ranging coverage that the club has both in membership and participants.
The committee supported the change based on the following points
• As stated above we now cover a very wide area of membership
• Equestrian Gold Coast would better reflect this expanding coverage
• Equestrian Gold Coast will attract more sponsors and supporters
• The new name will assist as our quest for our own grounds continues
• The name will better assist us to leverage the council to this end
• Once we have new grounds it assist when applying for grants
• The name Equestrian Gold Coast will assist to engage the general community better
Finally and we think most importantly, whilst the name may change, the NADEC culture will still exist within the club because the people will still be the same.
I strongly believe that we as a committee and the members of NADEC have the best culture within the Equestrian Community in South East Queensland and it is these qualities that continue regardless of the name. The club is widely respected throughout this community and the committee will work tirelessly to maintain this reputation.
The NADEC name will not be lost and will be incorporated into the new logo that will be presented at the AGM. I believe that there will be many ways to continue the name NADEC and most certainly won't be forgotten.
I believe the name change will be good for club and ask you to support the name change.
Facebook is an open forum and we welcome your comments and thoughts. However you must be at the AGM to cast your vote.
See you at the AGM Sunday December 4 at Burleigh Brewing.
Nerang and District Equestrian Club (NADEC) is the fun friendly place for riders who love to compete in Dressage, Showjumping and Showhorse.
Our members are of all ages and levels.
Do you take your riding very seriously and want to compete in official classes against some of Queensland's best riders?
Or are you more a weekend rider ... who loves to do his or her best .... but prefer the judging to be more low key?
We take care of both types of riders.
Throughout the year we run Participant and Official competitions, members days and clinics.
The feedback we get from people coming to ride at NADEC is that we are friendly, fun, relaxing, encouraging and our events are well run. If that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of come and join us.
