25.0 Dispute resolution procedures 

25.1      How a complaint is made

Any member or officer may make a complaint by giving the TYC committee a notice in writing that

  • states that the member or officer is starting a procedure for resolving a dispute in accordance with the society’s constitution

(b) sets out the allegation to which the dispute relates and whom the allegation is against

(c) sets out any other information reasonably required by the society.

The TYC committee may make a complaint against a member or an officer by giving to the member or officer a notice in writing that

  • states that the TYC committee is starting a procedure for resolving a dispute in accordance with the society’s constitution

(b) sets out the allegation to which the dispute relates with sufficient details given to enable them to prepare a response.

A complaint may be made in any other reasonable manner permitted by TYC’s constitution. 

25.2            Right to be heard 

Any member or officer who makes a complaint (complainant) and the the person who is the subject of a complaint (respondent) have a right to be heard before the complaint is resolved or any outcome is determined.

If the TYC committee makes a complaint against a member or an officer the respondent has a right to be heard before the complaint is resolved or any outcome is determined

Without limiting the manner in which a respondent may be given a right to be heard, a respondent must be taken to have been given the right if

  • the respondent is fairly advised of all allegations concerning the respondent, with sufficient details and time given to enable the respondent to prepare a written response

(b) the respondent has a reasonable opportunity to be heard at an oral hearing if the TYC Committee considers that an oral hearing is needed to ensure an adequate hearing 

25.3            Investigating and determining dispute

The TYC committee must, as soon as is reasonably practicable after receiving or becoming aware of a complaint made in accordance with its constitution, ensure that the dispute is investigated and determined.

Disputes must be dealt with under the constitution in a fair, efficient, and effective manner and the outcome of the dispute communicated in writing to both the complainant and the respondent. 

25.4            Referring a complaint

The TYC committee may

  • refer a complaint to an external person to investigate and report; or make a decision

(b) with the consent of all parties to a complaint, refer the complaint to any type of consensual dispute resolution (for example, mediation, facilitation, or a tikanga-based practice). 

25.5            Decision makers

A person may not act as a decision maker in relation to a complaint if two or more members of the TYC Committee consider that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the person may not be

(a) impartial; or

(b) able to consider the matter without a predetermined view.




Yin workshop – Saturday 25th March. 1pm to 3.30pm

Moving into Autumn: A time to turn inwards with some focus on the lung and large intestine meridians. Suitable for all levels.

When: 25th March

Time : 1-3.30pm

Cost: $35

In a  Yin practice you  have time to  listen to and befriend your body- whilst listening to its whispers. As you relish each breath-so you will quieten the mind. This means  2.5hrs of Mindfulness in gentle motion. In a yin class we work deeply into our body with passive, longer-held poses which target the deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, the deep fascia networks of the body and the meridians. This is contrast to a Yang yoga practice such as Vinyasa yoga which works more on our muscles. This practice will target the heart stomach and spleen meridians.

  1. Find an appropriate edge: Move slowly and gently into the pose, and look for an appropriate amount of intensity, never stretch so far as to cause pain.
  2. Stillness: consciously try to release into the pose, and to remain still, without shifting position.
  3. Hold the position: begin by holding for 1-3 minutes gradually progressing as your body allows.
  4. Come out of the pose gently and slowly.
