Nominations for the Board
Nominations for the Board have now closed. We have received 5 nominations for the 6 vacant Board positions. Under Clause 22 (6) of the Constitution, this means that an election of candidates is not required and all nominees will be appointed to the Board. The nominees will be introduced to the membership at the AGM.
As notified on the 14th October, under Clause 10 & 11 (1), of the Constitution, the Alternative Technology Association Incorporated (trading as Renew Australia) hereby gives notice that at the AGM to held on 22nd November that an item of Special Business will be added to the agenda for the meeting which is the following resolution:
- That the Alternative Technology Association Incorporated (trading as Renew Australia) adopt a new Constitution titled Alternative Technology Association (Renew Australia) – Constitution 2022 – V4 – 20221108
This is a significant change for the organisation and has been long in the planning. It is a result of statutory requirements as the current constitution is out of date but also it is a change to refresh the foundation of our organisation. You can see a copy of the proposed Constitution here. You can read more background on the proposed changes here.
We circulated the Constitution on the 14th October for feedback from the membership. We did receive some feedback and consequently some minor changes and corrections have been implemented. As a result the version presented here and to be voted on at the meeting is a different version to that circulated on the 14th October – all changes have been highlighted and explained in the supporting document.
