Bridge NSW Introductions

Bridge NSW is now the state peak body for NSW and responsible for advancing the playing and enjoyment of Bridge in NSW. We look forward to working with clubs to reinvigorate Bridge in this State. The Board has established structures aimed at developing an inclusive and whole of community way of working with all our members.

We are most fortunate to have attracted a team of skilled and energetic people who are passionate about the future of Bridge to positions on the Bridge NSW Board, its standing Committees and the Bridge NSW Council. It is a great pleasure to introduce this outstanding team to you.

The Council represents the breadth of bridge clubs, and its primary responsibilities are the appointment of the Board (or dismissing them) and making By-Laws on the recommendation of the Board. It is one of the ways the Board connects with the member clubs. Board members, general counsel, ABF delegates, and special councillors (if any appointed by council) also attend Council meetings.

The Board is responsible for the operation of Bridge NSW in terms of developing Bridge in the state, the selection of state representatives and is the constituent entity with the ABF. The Board has established five standing Committees to assistit in advancing Bridge in NSW.

The members of the Council and Board, the membership of the committees and their purpose are included in the document below.
