The only Special General Meeting Agenda item is to vote on the special resolution to accept the proposed ‘Update of VCAI Rules’ published on the website.
Comment on Rules Update:
As VCAI has progressed, some minor changes have been identified to better reflect our present and future ‘Objects.’ For example, our main remediation program, Timor Awakening, has evolved subsequent to the formation of VCAI in 2014. With a few minor exceptions, the VCAI Rules follow the ‘model rules’ on the Qld Government Office of Fair-Trading website for charitable organisations.
Apart from some corrections or word changes, the main changes/additions to the Rules are in Section 3 and 3.1, ‘Objects’; Section 5 ‘Classes of Members’; and Section 7 ‘Membership’. Please follow the links to read or download the Proposed VCAI Update Rules and the Original VCAI Rules.
