Notice of Mid-Year General Meeting 19 June 2016 |
Dear QRCC members,
Please be advised that the Mid-Year General Meeting (GM) for the QRCC will be held on the 19th June 2016 at 12:00 noon at the QRCC premises at 19 Lotus Street, Woolloongabba. Registration will be opened from 11:00 am, so please do not be late. Please, be aware that only registered members may attend the meeting.
The main subject for holding GM is to propose new QRCC Constitution under a special resolution.
It is extremely important that QRCC Constitution can accurately reflect how our organization is governed and is up-to-date with any changes to the Queensland Law. It is not helpful to have a Constitution that no one looks at or follows or that few can understand or that it is difficult to apply in general for the association situations. According to the recommendation of leading specialists an organization’s rules should be reviewed at least once every three years and amended, as required.
Taking those factors into account and considering the experience from the last annual GM the Committee made a decision to propose new Constitution of QRCC as a compiled set of rules. Most Non-for-Profit organisations in Queensland operate on the base of the Model Rules introduced by Associations Incorporation Regulation 1999. QRCC together with lawyers developed a document that successfully integrates the provisions of the Model Rules, current QRCC Constitution and best community practices in order to effectively serve our community needs and comply with the regulatory requirements.
New revision removes contradictions and controversial clauses, clarifies important aspects of organisation’s activities, outlines operational procedures, and accommodates changes to the Law. Therefore, the Constitution suggested by the Committee is more complete, consistent and up-to-date with the Queensland legislation.
The new QRCC Constitution proposed will be available for observation in 5 working days prior to the GM, on the 13 June 2016. Electronic copy will be placed on the QRCC web-site, and may be requested by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Printed copy of the Constitution may be provided by QRCC Committee upon the request.
