What is the relationship between the NSW SRC and the NSW Division of the ASRF?
The NSW SRC is a separate incorporated association. It is recognised by Tf NSW/Service NSW to represent the registration interests of all NSW Street Rodders. The NSW SRC has been operating as a Technical advisory committee (TAC) for the ASRF for over 30 years.
IT IS DUE TO HISTORY
It is partly historical, as the NSW SRC Inc was formed in 1972 to represent the registration interests of ALL street rodders in NSW regardless of their membership of various associations. Secondly; it is practical. The NSW RTA/RMS/TFNSW/Service NSW only wants to deal with one representing body. As a registration purpose-constituted association the NSW SRC can remain independent of the various ‘political’ factions of the associations and continue to exist and function if any individual affiliated association should cease to exist.
How is the NSW SRC funded?
The NSW SRC a ‘Not for Profit’ association and is self-funding. From inception in 1972 to the date of writing this response (September 2006) no fees have been charged to the associations and no grants sought. The Conditional Registration system carries small fees for services based on direct cost recovery. Other funds have been sourced from fund-raising activities by the members over many years. These funds are held in an investment account known as ‘The fighting fund’. Finances are reported annually at the AGM.
How can I help the NSW SRC with fund raising?
You, or your club can make a donation, or offer proceeds from an event etc. The NSW SRC could, for example, send members to your event to supply support and advice etc.
How can I join the NSW SRC?
The committee members are elected at the AGM from nominees from the affiliated associations with the required skills (see the section on ‘Structure’).
