A Special General Meeting of ECCV Members will be held on Thursday, 21 October 2021 at 7:00pm via Zoom

    The Special General Meeting is being held for ECCV members to approve proposed changes to the ECCV Constitution.

    ECCV has been reviewing its Constitution as part of best practice governance.

    The Constitutional Review process commenced in October 2020. Over the last 12 months, there has been extensive review of the current constitution including a Board survey and workshops facilitated by pro-bono legal teams (Russell Kennedy Lawyers, and counsel assisting Matthew Albert and Moray & Agnew Lawyers).  As a result, the Board Governance committee has worked with Moray & Agnew to develop the following amendments to the constitution.

    The key changes will:

    • Modernise and simplify the rules of the association
    • Include a preamble which outlines the vision for ECCV
    • Update the objectives and purpose
    • Reduce the core board numbers from 16 to 10
    • Provide greater definition around regional ethnic communities’ councils and their role on the ECCV board.

    At the 16 September 2021 meeting of ECCV Board of Directors, the Board endorsed the Constitutional amendments, and a motion was carried to hold a Special General Meeting for the proposed changes to be approved by ECCV Members.

    The Hon. John Pandazopoulos, from Moray & Agnew, will be presenting an overview of the changes for members at the SGM.

    ***Note that only Ordinary Members have voting rights. Members must be financial to be eligible to vote at Meetings ***
