In early 2019 the Board reviewed the constitution and determined a number of minor changes should be made. There is only one substantive amendment (a change to peak body membership of the Policy Council), and a few minor technical changes including changing the Executive Director's title (to CEO) and allowing for electronic voting in the annual elections.
The Special General Meeting to amend the constitution will be held on Monday 2 September at 11.45am in the Community Room at Marjorie Black House, 47 King William Road, Unley.
There are six motions to be put amending particular clauses in the constitution, as outlined in the documents below.
