APA Constitutional Review
The APA is in a strong position commencing 2013.
One of the key foundations of the 2012-2014 Strategic Plan is our ‘organisational capability’. Put simply, the APA will continue to develop a flexible and agile culture, with effective structures, systems and processes to help us achieve our vision.
A key process to help build our flexible and agile capability is to review the APA Constitution. Our Constitution is the document that determines the way the APA operates. Last year, the Board commissioned lawyers to draft a new Constitution, in consultation with a small working party and the National Advisory Council.
The Draft Constitution
is now open for feedback until Friday 1 March 2013. The process for review is available here
Once feedback is consolidated, a finalised version will be prepared and made available to all members prior to the AGM.
We are asking members to vote on adopting a new Constitution at the AGM on Sunday 14 April in Melbourne. For members unable to attend the AGM, we encourage you to submit a proxy form.

A vote of ‘YES’ to the proposed Constitution will ensure that the APA continues to evolve as a contemporary organisation that has best practice governance.
