Notice to Members - 2 August 2018

On 2 August 2018, the Board of Directors called a Special General Meeting for  27 August 2018 at 7.00pm to propose a special resolution to amend the constitutionThis will be the only business conducted at this meeting. 

The purpose of approving a new Constitution is to bring our organisation more in line with best practice governance arrangements. This work has been undertaken as part of our commitment to the Children's Education and Care Assurance (the Regulatory Authority) and will lift the required standards of leadership in relation to Baringa's management. 

All families and staff are welcome to attend, however, under the existing constitution only financially current members of the Association will be entitled to vote. For this reason, it is important that families arrange to pay all outstanding fees before 27 August 2018. 

Under the existing constitution, only persons personally present will count towards quorum, and members must be present in person or by proxy to have their vote count.

Following the Special General Meeting, before the end of the year, the Board will call an Annual General Meeting where parents will be asked to stand for election to the Board. If you are interested in joining the Board, the Special General Meeting is a good opportunity to learn about the Board.  
Interested members may download the proposed new constitution and a comparison table to the existing constitution.

The Board welcomes all feedback on the proposed new constitution, by email to [email protected]
