SFFANZ invites comment on the proposed new constitution for SFFANZ by 31 January 2024.

Due to a change in legislation, the SFFANZ membership will need to agree on a new, compliant constitution by the end of next year. We expect therefore that the new constitution will need to be adopted at the 2024 AGM.

A draft of the new constitution has been developed based on the compliant template provided online and on our existing constitution.  The new draft constitution can be found here and the existing constitution here – SFFANZ Constitution.

All members are asked to read the draft constitution and suggest any improvements. Such suggestions must be in an email to board@sffanz.nz outlining:

  • the section of the draft affected (where possible)
  • the issue you believe needs to be addressed
  • preferred wording to fix the issue

We ask for all feedback to be provided no later than January 31st 2024. We may contact you for further clarification including, if you wish, an individual online call.

In February and March we intend to run online general member sessions to discuss the draft and any proposed changes received from members.

Thanking you in advance.
