Lifesaving South Africa is calling for nominations for the Convener of the Disciplinary Committee following the resignation of Mr. Martin Williams.


Each Province and District is required to nominate one person who will be suitable for this position.


The person will need to have legal knowledge and will need to be willing to serve as per the LSA Constitution section 42.2 hereunder:


The Convenor of the Disciplinary Committee shall be appointed by the National Council in an Annual General Meeting to serve for a period of three (3) years: Provided that the person so appointed:-


  1. need not be a member of Lifesaving South Africa;
  2. shall accept his nomination for the position as the Convenor of the Disciplinary Committee in writing before such meeting, which nomination shall set out the qualifications and/or experience of the nominee;
  3. shall not hold any other office in Lifesaving South Africa or in a provincial member or in a district member;

  5. shall enjoy a security of tenure and shall not be interfered with or influenced in the performance of his functions by any officer, official or other member of Lifesaving South Africa: Provided that in the event of such a person becoming physically or mentally incapable of performing his functions, in the event of such a person being found guilty of any crime involving dishonesty or in the event of such a person committing a serious dereliction of duty, the Management Board shall resolve that a Special General Meeting be called for the sole purpose of impeaching the Convenor of the Disciplinary Committee and replacing him with another person to serve for the unexpired term of office.
