A good constitution needs to be reviewed regularly to ensure it is still serving your organisation, and still adhering to state laws – many of which have changed in the past 12 months. Participants in this session will take away 10 key tips for reviewing and renewing a constitution.
The course includes the following topics:
What the Government mandates for your constitution
How an effective constitution creates flexibility for your Association/Club
The process to alter your constitution
How to incorporate rules & regulations into a Club/Association constitution eg Netball Victoria Competition Regulation, Victorian Code of Conduct and By-Laws
This workshop will be delivered by “Our Community” which was established almost ten years ago to provide support, information resources and advice to community based not for profit organisations throughout Australia. In this time Our Community have been working with many clubs, leagues and peak bodies to educate organisations to gain an appreciation of their own constitutions and how they can work better for them.
