  7. Any other business with which the meeting is competent to deal.

Item 6 on the agenda relates to the updating of the constitution. Below is a copy of the proposed new constitution of the Kelmscott Agricultural Society. Changes had to be made to bring the Society into line with the Associations Incorporation Act 2015 (Model Rules) and the Australian Not for Profits and Charities Commission (ACNC).
You may recall from 2021 that we voted down the previous version at the AGM as there had been concerns raised by members that needed to be addressed. We have had plenty of robust discussions around those and other sections, and the KAS Councillors have now endorsed the changes and will move to have the Constitution adopted by the Society at the AGM.
