Bringing Associations Together To Boost Performance


AMA Ltd changes constitution to allow Tasmanian members to be a branch

Over 2,600 AMA Ltd members voted 95% in favour of changes to the AMA Ltd constitution at its Annual General Meeting held on 22 May 2024.

Until the vote, members of the AMA across Australia needed to join both their state / territory body as well as the national AMA Ltd entity. AMA Tasmania members requested a change to the AMA Ltd constitution to allow their members to be directly join AMA Ltd without requiring a separately incorporated state entity. The change allows smaller states such as Tasmania to operate as a subset of AMA Ltd without being an extra association.

AMA President Professor Steve Robson was pleased with the result. “The landslide vote was about supporting our smaller state and territory AMAs, most particularly our friends and colleagues in Tasmania,” said Prof Robson.

“Tonight's vote means that Tasmania can progress to becoming an internal branch of AMA Ltd. AMA Tasmania’s decision to seek to become a branch of AMA Ltd followed lengthy consultation with its members who overwhelmingly supported the change.”

The success of the AMA Ltd vote allows AMA Tasmania to take further steps towards dissolving at its Annual General Meeting. A seamless transition will allow Tasmanian members to have an uninterrupted voice in the AMA and to continue to receive relevant services.
