  • Resolutions passed at AGM
    In addition to the Board Election the Club also sought member approval to approve a new Constitution for the Club and deal with other required administrative matters that required member approval as follows:

    Special Resolution – Adoption of new Constitution

    ‘That, pursuant to section 136(2) of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (Corporations Act), the existing constitution is repealed and the new constitution that has been made available to members via RACT’s website at ract.com.au/agm (New Constitution) and in hard copy on request, is adopted as the constitution of the Company, with immediate effect.’

    Ordinary Resolutions: Board Limit and Directors Fees

    Board Limit

    “That without prejudice to its right to do so the Board not be required to appoint two Board Appointed Directors in respect to the period from the end of the 2020 Annual General Meeting up to the end of the 2021 Annual General Meeting.”

    Director’s Fees

    “That the annual directors fees remain at the aggregate amount as previously authorised by Members, but that in alignment with the proposed New Constitution, the Board shall not be required to allocate the total aggregate amount amongst the Member Elected Directors in any given year and that in future annual increases to the aggregate amount will reference the All Groups Consumer Price Index for Hobart rather than Average Weekly Ordinary Time Earnings.”

    The resolutions were all passed via poll by the required majorities as follows:

    Adoption of Constitution:
    For: 842 (97.45%)
    Against: 22

    Board Limit:
    For: 829 (95.73%)

    Explanatory Notes can be found within the Notice of Meeting and a copy of the newly adopted Club Constitution can be found here or on our About us page.

    Members also voted to confirm the minutes of the 2019 AGM (98.96%) and to receive the Annual Report and Financial Statements for the 12 months ended 30 June 2020 (98.96%).
