The annual general meeting of members of Civil Liberties Australia Inc (CLA). was conducted over February-March 2020. It comprised a vote to make minor changes to the CLA Constitution to align wholly with a Model Constitution of the ACT, and votes to approve the 2019 Annual Report, Treasurer’s Financial Statement and President’s Report. Some 43% of members voted: all who voted approved all items up for voting. The detailed figures and a wide range of the comments made by members with their votes are in the DECLARATION OF POLL document.
Members are advised that nominations have been called for the vacancies on the Board of Directors relating to this year’s eAGM. Elections for the Board are conducted every two years. A guide to duties/time/effort required of Board Members is available to assist in any consideration to stand.
The formal results are in for the Civil Liberties Australia Annual General Meeting, held in 2018, covering the 2017 calendar year reporting period. The report shows about 52% of members voted, overwhelmingly positively, and most members who commented had nice things to say about how the organisation is going and the job the directors are doing.
In preparation for the 2018 electronic Annual General Meeting (eAGM) voting the following four motions are proposed by the Board for the consideration of members. Discussion is open on these motions until 4 Mar 18.
