The Club’s Management Committee have called a SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING of Club Members to discuss and vote on the following matters:
- To ratify constitution changes required by the Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor.
i.e. Amendments to Clauses 6 (f), 6 (g), & 6 (i)
plus; Correcting reference to Liquor Licensing Act.
plus; Change of Club licensee name
(These changes are explained further in advice posted on Clubhouse Notice Board and also outlined in the letter from RGL, and the Club’s reply. Also posted on Notice Board.)
These amendments are compulsory if we wish to retain the Club’s liquor licence. And must be ratified by Club Members.
- To Re-approve constitution amendments which were originally approved at AGM on 24th April 2017.
Please refer to copies of 2 Notices of Motion (or “Special Resolutions”) (posted on noticeboard) which were presented and passed at the AGM.
These Special Resolutions are required by the Department of Commerce (Consumer Protection) who have insisted that ALL Clubs in WA update their Constitutions to comply with the; Associations Incorporation Act 2015.
However, they also insist that these amendments must be submitted to the Department of Commerce within 30 days of Club Members approving them.
Submission to them was delayed as the Club forwarded them firstly to Dept of Racing Gaming & Liquor.
Consequently, we now need Members to “Re-Approve” these changes so they can be submitted to Dept of Commerce.
