Description

Explanatory statement for special resolutions considered at the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) 26th Annual General Meeting held on 21 May 2014 at ALIA House, Canberra.
Appendix includes the ALIA Constitution effective to 30 November 2006 with the proposed amendments marked.
The changes aim to ensure the Constitution reflects a modern Association; provides greater efficiency and flexibility, and acknowledges the expanding role of technology.
The changes include the introduction of online voting options at the AGM; the reduction of the AGM quorum from 21 to 11; the removal of the requirement for a Director representing institutional members (all Directors act on behalf of personal and institutional members); and a change of title from Executive Director to Chief Executive Officer. It is proposed that the National Advisory Congress provisions be incorporated into the Association by-laws instead of the constitution, but there are no plans to discontinue the annual round of member gatherings. Further amendments tidy up the wording of the constitution, for example, Secretary becomes Company Secretary.
