Governance


Constitution

 

The Constitution and Regulations of The Australian National University Students’ Association Incorporated form the key governance document for the Association, containing information about roles, structure, meetings, finances, elections – everything to do with the running of the Association.

To modify the Constitution, proposed amendments must be circulated to give notice to members no less the 21 days before the date of the General Meeting at which the amendments are to be debated. The amendments must also be passed by a 3/4 majority of those present and voting at that General Meeting and then approved by University Council.

Amendments to the regulations of the Association require only the regular notice (i.e. they must be included in the agenda sent out no less than three teaching days before the meeting) and need only be passed by a 2/3 majority of those present and voting at a General Meeting.

The electoral regulations can be found from page 44 onwards of the Constitution.
