60. Payment for umpires

Preamble. With the diminishing amount of available cash and access to cash in society, Umpire payments will be made by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) by the Association Treasurer.

Payment to the Umpires will be affected after each days play in which the umpires have officiated.

Clubs will be invoiced by the Association Treasurer each week and are required to pay within seven days of receiving the invoice. Failure to pay by the due day will incur a penalty as determined by the SMCA Executive prior to the start of the season.

The payment rate for official umpires will be determined prior to the start of season and included in the Advice to Committees document sent to all clubs.
