HISA_Logo_2016_tAGAs previously announced to members, there are several proposed changes to the HISA Constitution that are being tabled for voting at the 2016 AGM.

Modifying HISA’s Constitution is not something the HISA Board takes lightly.  We have spent 6 months reviewing the document and have sought input from the HISA State Branch committees.

What is now being put forth to members are 11 modifications, grouped into the below 8 categories:

  1. Voting at the national AGM
  2. Student members
  3. Special Interest Groups
  4. Branch & Board processes
  5. Branch Committees
  6. Board Casual Vacancies
  7. It’s 2016 and we really don’t use paper anymore (if we can help it!)
  8. Various ‘clean up’

Members are encouraged to vote on each of these 11 modifications.  According to the Constitution, voting on these must happen at the AGM, so electronic voting is not permitted.  Please review the below documents, attend the explanatory webinar (or watch the recording), attend the AGM and cast your votes.  If you are unable to attend the AGM, you can still vote by appointing a proxy who attends in your place (but casts your votes the way you desire).

Voting will occur at the HISA 2016 AGM, 12.50pm Tuesday 26 July, Melbourne Convention Centre during HIC.
