In addition to the new committee of management being elected during the AGM, a significant agenda item is the ratification of the new revised Constitution by which the organisation will operate.
Twenty years ago inaugural President, Irene Wood, wrote a Constitution to guide Trigeminal Neuralgia Association Australia and it enabled the organisation’s incorporation within NSW.
Two decades on, the world is a different place. The digital era has been consolidated and this means that our existing Constitution fails to recognise the changes. The existing Constitution does not meet all the requirements of a number of pieces of legislation, and in addition, it directs some very specific actions which our committee no longer wishes to make.
In the last half of 2022 a new Constitution was written that absorbed NSW legislation and regulations for Incorporated Associations, the requirements of the Australian Charities and Not Profit Commission (ACNC), and other federal legislative requirements.
Since the committee gave approval to the new Constitution, the document has been submitted for a legal opinion and we now know the revision is sound.
