    AGM Agenda
    • Apologies
    • Minutes of the previous AGM (16 October 2013)
    • President’s and Treasurer's Reports
    • Vote on changes to constitution:
    1. Upgrade due to legal changes, and
    2. To enable associate members to join on-line without a formal application process.
    • Election of Office bearers
    • MSA2015 Conference
    • Close of meeting


    Proposed amendment to constitution:
    The Victorian law under which we operated was changed in 2012 to require a complete constitution upgrade if any change is made after 2013. It is proposed that membership grades (and the membership subcommittee) will not be in the constitution, but will be defined separately and published on our website. The National Team intends to amend the membership grades so that associate members may join on-line without a formal application process. In all other respects the new constitution will operate the same as the old constitution.

    The proposed constitution is available for consideration here .
