The Club President chairs the group of five experienced players. Issues should be raised either by posting a letter to the Club addressed to the Bridge Conduct Committee, Auckland Bridge Club or by email to the Club President (and NOT to the General Committee). The Conduct Committee aims to conclude their discussions within one month of receipt of a written query.
Players with concerns which they may not wish to raise with either the Director or with the Bridge Conduct Sub Committee are also free to contact their Regional Recorder, Russell Watt.
A bridge Recorder is an experienced player who is available for informal advice; this could be about an issue of play, bidding or etiquette. Any bridge player may contact the Recorder to help them decide whether to take an incident to formal appeal, or just to report a concern about another bridge player’s behaviour (at or away from the table).
Communications with a Recorder should remain strictly confidential to that person alone. A Recorder receives, investigates communicates, as appropriate, with those involved with a reported incident, especially the reporter and the subject. A record of all incident reports, along with records of investigation and resolution, is maintained.
The Recorder may make or assist with an impartial presentation of evidence to a disciplinary committee or may present a complaint to his or her appointing organisation. The New Zealand Bridge Board appoints a national Recorder, who is available for consultation at national events. Each of the seven regional committees should appoint a Regional recorder, who , whenever possible, should be available at regional events and tournaments.
