Constitutions or Rules are the key governing documents of an association. Within the bounds of the relevant law, constitutions state the purpose of the association plus define constituent members and the composition of the Board of Directors.
In reality, many association constitutions are not good enough. They may be written in language from a different age, be drafted by people with poor knowledge of governance concepts or be out of step with current laws.
Associations Forum can assist by:
- Reviewing the current constitution
- Working with association leaders to develop preferred governance and membership content
- Promotion of the case for change along with the in-principle new components
- Drafting specific new clauses or a completely new document following member feedback
Updating a constitution can be tedious. Associations Forum works with associations to draft a clear, practical and compliant constitution that will likely be approved by the members at a General Meeting of members.
Associations Forum also offers Constitution Reviews free of charge for Gold members.
