Notice of Special Resolution to Change the LELAN Constitution

A special resolution to make changes to LELAN’s constitution, in accordance with the Associations Incorporation Act 1985, will be made at the AGM. It is intended that the following motion be proposed as a special resolution:

That the current Constitution of SA Lived Experience Leadership and Advocacy Network Inc (LELAN) be repealed and the proposed new Constitution attached to the notice of the meeting of the members of LELAN, be adopted as the Constitution of LELAN.

The new Constitution showing all proposed changes in yellow highlight can be accessed here. Changes have been made to the clauses relating to the objects or purposes of the association only.

By way of summary, the LELAN Board is proposing these amendments to make explicit core rules of the organisation that have thus far been implicitly known to people involved in the organisation. The proposed changes update the Constitution to ensure it aligns with the intent, purpose and core focus and encapsulates the vision and the values of LELAN.
