WACOSS webinar: Does your constitution need updating?

This is a WEBINAR presented by WACOSS and will be hosted at CityHive

Has your organisation reviewed your constitution in the past three years?  If not, you may find the organisation has outgrown its constitution.  Often organisations find out they are not legally complying with their own constitution, the hard way.   

As the governance approach of not-for-profit community services sector moves further into a corporate model and organisations change direction and structure to meet the ever changing socio-political landscape, it is essential organisations have a serviceable and well-structured constitution suitable for their current  needs.

This short hot topic webinar seminar will look at the importance of reviewing your constitution and what to  consider.  

The session will be specifically for those organisations that are Incorporated under the WA Incorporations Associations Act.

The session will cover the requirements of the Incorporation Association Act, common issues to look out for such as: how much detail to put in the constitution, the value of by-laws, using the model rules, terminology, roles of office bearers how often Boards should meet per year, meeting electronically.
