Notice of Special General Meeting 8.30am Wednesday 21 December 2016
The Board of RESULTS International Australia has been working to secure Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status so that all donations you make will become tax deductible. We hope this will enhance our ability to raise funds to expand our activities.
For the DGR application, legal advice recommended amendments to the Objects and Goals in RESULTS Constitution to better reflect the work that RESULTS now undertakes given that the focus of our work has moved in the thirty years since we were first established.
Over 95% of the work of RESULTS focuses on now is to generate public and political will to end global poverty through the prevention and control of diseases in human beings and the provision of equitable access to health.
Our lawyers assisted in revising our Objects and Goals and at the same time modernising the Constitution. As a result please find attached links to the relevant documents:
- Meeting agenda
- Proposed new Constitution
- The current Constitution with the revisions highlighted.
- A table explaining the changes proposed in each section.
- A proxy voting form should you be unable to attend.
We encourage you to join us by teleconference (dial in details are included below) on Wednesday 21 December 2016 at 8.30am to consider and, if thought fit, to pass two resolutions to permit this change. Attached is a proxy form in case you are unable to attend in person.
We must achieve a quorum of members so we ask that you indicate whether you can attend or not please RSVP to RESULTS Secretary on firstname.lastname@example.org. We expect the meeting will take 30 minutes or less depending on the number of questions and discussion.
If you have questions prior please do not hesitate to email Chris Franks at email@example.com
