GBL Baseball Judiciary Member
The Greater Brisbane League (GBL) Competition Committee is seeking expressions of interest for
appointment as a member of its competition Judiciary. The Judiciary’s primary role is to
investigate behavioural complaints about GBL members in the course of the GBL Baseball
Competition and, where appropriate, administer penalties. The GBL Committee will be selecting
a register of 5-6 members from which a panel of three will make up the Judiciary for each
matter. The Committee will also be selecting a Judiciary Chairperson.
The positions available are volunteer-based and out-of-office hours are to be expected. Work
includes both consultation over email and, in some cases, hearings. Hearings are ordinarily
scheduled on Thursday evenings at SportsHouse, Milton, but may be scheduled at any time
determined by the Chairperson. The workload will be shared by the members.

– The updated GBL Judiciary Procedures are currently being finalised and will be published as an
Appendix to the GBL Bylaws in the coming weeks.

– While it is difficult to estimate the workload of the Judiciary in advance, the past two seasons
have had approximately 15 referrals over the 20 week season with less than 50% proceeding to
a hearing.

Minimum Criteria/Qualifications
For the role of Chairperson, the GBL Committee is seeking someone who has legal experience
and is independent of any GBL Club.

Other members of the Judiciary may be associated with GBL Clubs (although independent
persons are preferred) but will be excluded where conflicts arise. Baseball experience in any
capacity is favourable but not essential. The GBL Judiciary Procedures contain important
processes which need to be followed. It is expected that successful applicants will be able to
readily interpret and implement the Procedures.

Expressions of interest should outline the applicant’s background, experience and/or
qualifications and any existing or previous club affiliations. These should be sent to the
Competition Administrator (Glen Long) at by Friday 19 October
