i belong to a motor cycle club .What is required for any alterations to the everyday running of a club as we have had two members make a drastic change without consulting its members
liasing with the parties concerned, but told if I don't like it to leave
Good MorningIs this alteration, an alteration to the constitution of the club?Do you have a copy of the constitution (club rules)?
2. No we were not given any but told we run on protocol which nobody has seen a copy of that either
Good MorningWhat they have done may not be permitted. In order ot be 100% certain you need a copy of the constitution. If it is a registered association, and they refuse to give you the constitution you may have to commence proceedings with VCAT as members and seek orders that they provide the constitution.Your application would be for VCAT to determine if the changes have been implemented correclty and if they are legal and binding. Once you lodge you would issue a subpoena for the constitution to be provided. Before you do this you may want to contact the department of Consumer Affairs and see if they are prepared to investigate for you or have a mediation. If you have not asked for a copy, then ask for one before you do any of the above.Make sure everything from now on is in writing so you have a record. I hope this is of assistance. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Having answered your question I would like to explain how I am paid for my work. The rating given by you, for my answer will decide whether or not I will be paid for my work. At the end of this post you will see 5 faces asking you to rate my work. Selecting either of the 2 the unhappy faces means you are not happy with my answer and do not wish me to be paid for my work. The other 3 mean I am paid. I would prefer you rate me at the very end of our session not after each response. This way I can be sure you have an answer that assists you and you can rate the whole experience. If you want more information after I respond, or wish to have something cleared up, select "Reply so Sydney-Lawyer" or "Reply to Expert" and we can continue until you are satisfied. I am here to assist you as quickly as possible, and you rating each post will delay the process as it does not tell me what the issue is. I would prefer you ask me questions than rating the response and not providing me with further questions.
how many financial members have to be present at a meeting to make alterations that affect the club
BEc Dip Ed, Dip Law (SAB) MTax (UNSW)
another question, if all this turns sour what procedure & regulations do we have to follow to form a breakaway club
no what they did, was register the club under another name and we are operating under these two name. Its all been documented and done legally, but we are concerned because there was no communications between the members about this name change.
So we are considering to form another club because they are adamant they haven't done anything, the main argument is they didn't consult all the members and did it off their bat.
we requested an extra ordinary meeting which these two members are saying is not needed because they say they did it in the best interest of the club.
NOTE: they have changed the category requirements to be a member of this club
i still need to know the requirements to form a breakaway club, minimum number of members and the procedure to form this club, I do know we have to be incorporated, we want to keep our original identity which is Australia wide but to form another chapter using this identity
