<br><br>On 3rd July 2019, ACS provided notice to all members that we would be seeking members approval to change the legal structure of the Society and to replace the entirety of the existing Rules of the Society with a new constitution that is compliant with Corporations Act. This included the proposed resolution, schedules and the notice to members - <a href="http://t.comms.acs.org.au/r/?id=h7b7d4f,eb36896,eb34549&amp;customerID=" target="_blank">Notice of proposed alteration to the Rules and Objects of the Society</a>.<br><br>To assist members to understand how the proposed new governance model will operate in its entirety, you may have already seen this article posted in Information Age on the 25 June 2019 – <a href="http://t.comms.acs.org.au/r/?id=h7b7d4f,eb36896,eb3454a&amp;customerID=" target="_blank">ACS to modernise governance: From Incorporated Association to Company Limited by Guarantee</a>, or other articles from ACS members Karen Gee and Peter James.

This livestream is to provide a forum that can reach as many members as possible to assist members to understand how the proposed modernisation of the governance framework will help in meeting and servicing the demands of our members.<br><br>Following this livestream, ACS President Yohan Ramasundara will be visiting every Branch across the country to undertake a Governance Review Branch Forum for members who are interested in better understanding what the changes to the governance framework entail and what it means for you and ACS’ future.
