2019 Constitutional Changes – Ballot

The 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) passed a series of special resolutions to amend the Club’s Constitution.  These amendments cover four separate sets of changes:

  • Remove transitional clauses that are no longer relevant
  • Change the minimum Youth Membership age to 18
  • Allow removal of Life Members whom the Club has been unable to contact
  • Remove the concept of “leave” for Committee meetings

Constitutional changes, after being approved at the AGM, must be confirmed by a postal ballot of members in order to take effect.  Ballot papers have been posted to all members eligible to vote.  Please follow the instructions on the ballot paper to participate.

Completed ballot papers must be received by 5pm, Friday April 19 2019, to be included in the count.

If you have not received a ballot paper, or have made an error on your ballot paper and would like a new one, you can print one yourself – the link is below.

Also below is a link to information on the background to these changes. This information has been posted to eligible members with ballot papers.

If you have any queries about the ballot process, or the changes being proposed, please contact Jenny McLeod (email secretary@cac.org.au).

New CAC website

After several false starts, Canberra Alpine Club now has a new website.  Using WordPress, it should be much easier to update than the old site, which should allow us to keep it up to date with Club-related news and information.  There are a few members-only pages but most information is available for both members and non-members  to browse.

Have a look around, and send any feedback to webadmin@cac.org.au.
