WPBSA received 100 per cent support of votes in favour of the constitutional changes.
The new articles provided key changes in the modernization of the company. Some of those changes are:
- Permanently setting the number of board directors to five, with a minimum of two player directors.
- Extending voting rights to all members ranked 1 - 96, enabling a fairer and more democratic voting system.
- Removing the minimum age limit of 16 and maximum age limit of 70 for members.
WPBSA chairman Jason Ferguson said: "I am delighted with this vote of confidence. With the commercial side of the sport going from strength to strength, it is vital that the govening body remains strong and cost effective, and this result today is testament to the stability we now have in snooker."
