Proposed New Rules of Association and By-laws for WAGS - 2018


The Associations Incorporation Act was amended in 2015 with effect from 1 July 2016. The amended Act requires that all incorporated bodies have three years from 1 July 2016 to either revise their Association Rules (Constitution) or adopt the Model Rules  as their own Association Rules.

WAGS Management Committee resolved to adopt the Model Rules as the Society’s own Rules and create by-laws to address additional governance and administration matters for the management of WAGS affairs and business.

The revised Rules of Association replacing the previous WAGS Constitution and new and revised by-laws are posted here for member's consideration:

A workshop is planned for March 2018 for members to discuss and give feedback on these documents. Notice of the workshop will be publicised in January 2018.
