Changes to the Constitution
Members are informed that a proposal to make changes to the Constitution is intended to be passed as a Special Resolution at this Meeting. The Constitution will be updated to reflect changes to the associations incorporations laws that were implemented from 1 September 2016. In particular, there are three new matters that every constitution must now address: (1) the maximum number of consecutive terms of office of any office-bearers on the committee (if specified); (2) ballots can be postal or electronic; and (3) the winding-up of the association. In addition to these matters, a few provisions in the Constitution will be updated to be consistent with changes to the Model Constitution.
A document setting out the key changes to the Constitution can be viewed here.
