Friends of Heysen – Constitution Review – Member Information Session
FOHT Council has decided to review our 35 year old Constitution to modernise and refresh it to meet our current needs. Council is undertaking consultation with committees and members to help build a framework for the next 35 years.
The Constitution outlines the rules for how the Friends manages the finances, policies and priorities for our activities: walks program, trail development, office and promotion. Council members think it is a good opportunity to revitalise how we manage the Friends and encourage newer members to become more involved.
Interested members are invited to an information session that will outline key proposals, answer questions and obtain feedback from members.
Members will need to register via the Friends Walk/Event on-line system as numbers will be capped and usual COVID requirements apply. A draft document will be available.
Council will consider any feedback and issues raised before seeking legal advice on the provisions and any formal process.
The current Constitution requires that proposed changes be presented at a special Meeting of Members or Annual General Meeting.
