(Subject to Covid-19 restrictions)

As per the Articles of Association only financial members are eligible to vote at the AGM and notice of any ordinary motions must be received not less than 14 days prior to the AGM.

I urge all community members to become involved in the process leading up to the AGM.

Ian Hunt, Secretary, RADSPA

In order to be able to participate at the AGM people must be Financial Members of the Association.

Membership forms are on the website.

The list of current financial members is on the "Members" page.

Motions to be tabled at the AGM need to be submitted to the Secretary for inclusion on the AGM Agenda not less than 7 days before the AGM.

Under the Constitution the Committee is made up of:

President - currently vacant

Vice President - currently vacant

Secretary - to be vacated at the AGM

Treasurer - to be vacated at the AGM

Public Officer - to be vacated at the AGM

2 Ordinary Committee Members - to be vacated at the AGM

 

Given that the full current membership (pre-September2020) will be resigning at the AGM, there will be 2 responses available for the AGM agenda.

If INSUFFICIENT nominations for the vacated positions are received, under the Associations Act, the Secretary will need to organise winding up of the Association.

If SUFFICIENT nominations are received, the new committee will take over stewardship of the Association.

In both cases there will be an address from the Chair as first item on the Agenda. This will be delivered by the Secretary and will confirm the Cash at Hand, status of the claim negotiations and reasoning behind the recommendations of the outgoing Committee. 

 

The Agenda for the AGM will be set in the lead up to the AGM according to the response of the community to these scenarios. The Agenda will be posted to this site 7 days before the meeting.
