Notice of Motion AGM 23 April 2018

The following motions will be proposed as SPECIAL RESOLUTIONS.

The Government of Western Australia, Department of Commerce, (Consumer Protection), have previously advised that ALL incorporated associations in WA must review and update their rules (or constitution) to ensure their document complies with the Associations Incorporations Act 2015.

At our 2017 AGM, held on 24th April 2017, after what we believed to be a thorough review of the Club’s constitution, the Committee submitted several changes to the rules so as to comply with the Act. These changes were subsequently passed at that meeting. And submitted to the Department.

However, the Department have since advised us, in January this year, that further amendments would be necessary to ensure compliance.

Management Committee have therefore since considered and reviewed the recommendations of the Department and made several new changes which we trust, will ensure that this Club’s Constitution is fully compliant into the future. These changes now need to be ratified by Members and so, are now submitted for Member’s approval at the coming AGM.

A list of these alterations to the rules (constitution), to be proposed as special resolutions, is posted on notice board in club house.

Also on the notice board, (to better explain the reason for the proposed amendments,) you will find a copy of the letter received from the Department of Commerce (Consumer Affairs)

Hopefully, this will give all Members a proper picture of what these changes are for.

We ask Members to read and make themselves familiar with these changes, as eligible Members will be asked to vote on them at the coming AGM.

We have numbered the 10 points that the Department have raised, indicating where our constitution does not comply with the act in their letter. We have also numbered the motions (or special resolutions) so that Members can compare the Departments requests and the corresponding amendments to be made.

All special resolutions show the current rules, and then the proposed amendment. Also, we have highlighted the changed wording in BLUE PRINT.

PLEASE CHECK THE NOTICE BOARD AND READ THE PROPOSED NOTICE OF MOTION AND THE REASONS FOR THE CHANGES.
