Proposed Constitution amendments
The Board of Directors for Arthritis NSW is committed to the highest standards of Governance.
To that end, after consultation with numerous stakeholders including the Associations Forum and Gadens lawyers (generously acting on a pro-bono basis), a range of amendments are proposed to the Arthritis NSW Constitution, the current version of which has been in place since 2017. These changes are to address some historic limitations, and establish a more contemporary Governance framework. You will find enclosed with this letter:
- The proposed amended Constitution
- A table summarising the changes from the current constitution and the reasons for those changes.
These amendments to the Arthritis NSW Constitution will be considered at the 2021 AGM.
Hard copies of the 2021 Annual Report (the Annual Review and Financial Statements) are available upon request. Soft copies are available for download on the website. If you would like to receive a hard copy in the mail, please contact our office (as per the details above).
