There is one agenda item for consideration at this meeting. It is as follows:
- The following section of the current constitution (May 2022) has an error that reads as:
- The Board will consist seven Members as follows:
a)four Members of the Institute elected as Board members by the Members of the Institute in accordance with this Constitution
b)the Board will co-opt an additional five Board members with full voting rights.
With four members in a) and five members in b) this totals nine members in total for the board and not the seven as listed.
This meeting is called to address both this anomaly and also reflect the officially gazetted Incorporated Societies Regulations 2023, which came into force on 5 October 2023. The board recommends member approval to update the PRINZ Constitution to:
- The Board can consist of nine Members as follows:
a) five Members of the Institute will be elected as Board members by the Members of the Institute in accordance with this Constitution
b) the Board can co-opt an additional four Board members with full voting rights.
PRINZ constitution requires 5% of the current membership to ratify this change. Please RSVP below if you can attend and vote.
