4   CHANGES TO CONSTITUTION AND OPERATIONAL MANUAL

The following amendments to the Constitution are proposed for the 2016 AGM. These are minor amendments to remove redundant wording or duplication, meet ASC guidelines, and bring the Constitution into line with current practice.

  1. Removal of redundant reference to Council (clause 6.1)
  2. Extension of period when Executive Officer cannot be Board member post-departure from 12 months to 3 years, to meet ASC governance principles (6.2)
  3. Removal of redundant transitional provisions from 2014 Board restructuring (11.3)
  4. Redefinition of committees as ‘standing committees’ (the traditional one-person per state committees) or ‘select committees’ (other groups, often with more specialist roles such as selection or the Eventor Working Group). (6.3, 11.2).
  5. Removal of detailed provisions for the Misconduct Appeals Committee, which duplicates material already in the appeals policy (21.8, 21.9, 22). (Retention of the misconduct procedure itself in the Constitution is, I believe, a requirement of the Associations Incorporation Act).

The amended Constitution is in Attachment A. See Agenda 2016 AGM

Blair Trewin, President, 24 January 2016

5  DEVELOPMENT OF DRAFT PROPOSAL FOR A NATIONAL MEMBERSHIP MODEL
There was agreement at the 2015 Annual Conference to develop a draft proposal for a National Membership Model for consideration at the 2016 Conference. A report on preliminary work on this will be provided to the AGM.
