CONSTITUTION

Dear Members

During the past year we have spent a significant amount of time and effort on auditing and updating the club's Workplace Health, Safety and HR policies and procedures.

It has been some time since these have been updated and not surprisingly needed attention to bring them in line with current legislation.

This is ongoing but getting very close to completion.

During this process it was also identified that the club’s constitution needed reviewing to bring it up to date with current practices.

This project has been an enormous undertaking by some of our volunteer board members and I thank them sincerely for their efforts.

Please find attached a proposed draft version of an updated constitution for Darling Downs Aero Club.

Could I ask that you review the draft and reply with any comment to manager@ddac.com.au by 18th June 2018.

We can then consider any amendments that may be required before implementing at a special general meeting.

Regards

Robert Hannemann

President
Darling Downs Aero Club
