PROPOSAL: At the January Committee Meeting, a proposal was prepared in order to ensure our Rules of Association comply with The Associations Incorporation Act 2015. One proposed amendment was a new sub-rule which covered members eligibility to serve on the Committee. In compliance with the Act members are asked to review the following amendment before voting on the changes at the AGM.

RULES OF ASSOCIATION  PROPOSED AMENDMENT
RULE 10 – COMMITTEE OF MANAGEMENT

Rule 10.2 A member will not be eligible for election (under sub rule 10.3) or appointment (under sub rule 10.8) if they:

  • are an undischarged bankrupt or whose affairs are under insolvency law
  • have been convicted with an offence involving fraud or dishonesty punishable on conviction by 3 months or more imprisonment and
  • have been convicted of an offence in connection with the promotion, formation of management of a body corporate, including duties under the new law.
  • Where a member is prohibited because they have been convicted of an offence they cannot be a committee member for a period of five years from their conviction, except where the conviction resulted in imprisonment, in which case they cannot be a committee member for five years from their release from custody.

    The complete proposal to amend the Rules of Association from the January Committee Meeting will be forwarded to all members, under separate email, prior to the AGM.
