A members workshop was held on Saturday 24 March 2018  to discuss and give feedback on the revised Association Rules and By-laws. Some proposed changes were subsequently adopted by the Committee.

The draft revised Rules of Association replacing the previous WAGS Constitution and new draft by-laws, with these latest amendments included, are posted in Members Only>WAGS Business> Constitution.

As only two members in addition to committee members attended the workshop on 24 March there will not be any further workshops held. It is proposed to convene a General Meeting of the Society on 29 July 2018 for the purpose of formally adopting the new Rules and by-laws. A formal Notice of Meeting will be published closer to the time.

The arrival in Western Australia of the Hougoumont, with its cargo of convicts and Pensioner Guards, marked the end of transportation worldwide. The 9 January 2018 will mark the 150th Anniversary of this event and so the WA Genealogical Society and the Royal WA Historical Society will be holding a series of Joint Presentations and Displays of Artefacts and Photographs of the men who came to the Swan River Colony, both in chains and in Uniform, during the convict era.  Both societies will have two events.
