Club Constitution and Policies

These policies and bylaws make up the rules of the club. They are under constant review and if listed as ‘Draft’, they are open for member feedback and are going through the Executive approval process.

Current Constitution – 2023

Under the new Associations Incorporation Act 2015, all incorporated associations, (such as our Club) must have updated their constitutions to incorporate the requirements of the new Act in place by June 2019 to meet the legislation. SLSA developed a Model document, which takes into account all requirements of the Act plus several clauses which apply specifically to SLS Clubs in abiding by SLSA rules and regulations.

Our constitution was adopted by the Club at a Special General Meeting of members in May 2018 and was updated most recently at the June 2023 Annual General Meeting.
